Virtual Crop Anyone?

Do you think it's time for another VC? Dirol

I was thinking maybe next weekend, or the weekend after that.

Please share your input! It's so fun when we are chatting and cropping at the same time.

I so need this. I really hope that I am able to next weekend. I have a b-day party and a town get-together. I think it sounds great. I need to start scrapping again. I have just a few pages in my 2008 book with just a few months left to complete it! :eek:

That's why I wanted input, because summer is so hard to schedule around. How is the weekend after next for you Sadie?

I doesn't matter what weekend we do it. I will manage time in to do it! Wink I think the weekend after is the week Breaking Dawn comes out, so I'll be tied up in a book, but no matter what I will make time.

Who's the author? Smile I love reading too! I am usually on a scrapbooking kick, then reading kick...I alternate.

Hi girls! I lurk a lot and check out your gorgeous creations! I haven't been to an IRL crop in forEVER, so this thread really caught my eye... what's a virtual crop??

Oh, these books are so recommended. My favorite books I have read so far. Which is crazy I know! Wink

The author is Stephenie Meyer. Here's her site with the series I am talking about! I started reading Twilight one Sunday and finished that night. I couldn't put it down. The only time I did was for church! I ended up finishing New Moon & Eclipse by the end of the week as well. My sister had been trying to get me to read them for about a year. She teaches 9th grade English, so I figured it would be juvenile, but it turns out it's very grown up! I devoured all of the series, and I am so ready for Breaking Dawn. It is released on 8.2.08. It's a love story inside a well written book.

Hiya Kara! Jump right in! We'd love to have you! A "virtual crop" is where everyone scraps from their own homes and chats and shares their work online. We have games and challenges (and I've got a few prizes up my sleeve....) and FUN! Smile Basically everything you'd have at a real crop, only online from your own home.

You won't be able to put them down. When I read that they were about vampires, I just rolled my eyes. It's so much more than your typical vampire. I loved every page of every book. I am so ready for the release of Breaking Dawn. There is also a movie of Twilight coming out 12.12.08. Biggrin

Either weekend works....but I'm not going to be home for big chunks of either of them. I'll scrap when I can! Smile

I'm gone this weekend, the weekend of Aug. 2nd I might be able to do it, depending on my work schedule.

Ooh! I would love to participate if I am around. Weekends are so busy for me in the summer; we are hardly ever home! Sad This coming weekend would definitely be out. I might be around the Saturday of the next weekend, but we are leaving for vacation that Sunday. Whenever you decide to have it, if I'm around I'll try to join in! And hopefully I'll catch the next one for sure! Smile

Any weekend in the summer is busy for us, but I'd still make a little time if I can. I think it sounds wonderful to have another one. Oh, I prefer not this next weekend since it will be our anniversary.

yeah i agree with the other ladies, weekends are super busy for us no matter what. so either weekend we have things planned. but i'll try and make time, since i'm behind on scrapping anyway and i have a bunch of prints that i'm having shipped to my house and ones that i have to pick up in various stores.

sounds like loads of fun.

Sadie, I went to the local library here and all her books are out right now. I am going to check back next Monday. I can't wait to start them!

This sounds great, but I am out of town for many weekends until summer is over:) Sad
Yay for fun, boo for missing this. Do we ever do these on weeknights?

We could do them during the week, though we've never done that. It's usually easier for us to plan weekends, though I'm completely open to suggestions. This is only our second crop too! Smile

Come on, let's hear what everyone thinks. Maybe the crop after the one in August could be done during the week? Thanks in advance!

That stinks Charys. I wish I could lend you the ones I am reading, but they are my sister's. I have already read them, but I am starting them back up....I'm a nerd I know! Wink

Man this sucks. Last VC I had to work, this VC I'm going on vacay. Although I seriously doubt that I won't be having fun that weekend.

Darn, we leave for KY early on the 2nd so I won't be around and then of course school starts. I'll miss ya but maybe we can have another one in eary Nov. that way we can scrap our little ghouls and we won't be too busy with Christmas yet.

Good idea Shelly! November would be fun for our next crop. WE could even start working on Christmas gifts/cards.

I would be up to trying a weeknight. I can't guarantee how long I could be on. Karl is sleeping now, but that's not always a sure thing, but maybe I can find a week night where dh will be home.

okay, I want to play ... but it will be limited with the newborn and all.

I'm wondering if there's a compromise between the weekend/weekday thing. like maybe doing a crop that starts Saturday afternoon and goes until Monday midnight or something. or is that my sleep deprivation talking? Lol

We could do that Gwen! WE could start it Saturday afternoon and continue through midnight on Monday the 4th.

Can you post a link for the tag in your siggy?

I'm not sure I know how to do that! I just created a little "picture" in paint, saved it as jpeg and uploaded to photobucket. How would I then link it to this board? :help1:

Well, people can save the picture and upload it to their own photo-hosting.

OR

You can take the image link that you would normally copy into your siggy and post it here, but you need to make a small change to it so we can see the text rather than it showing us the picture again.

Yes, I thought she meant when they clicked on the picture it would bring them to the Scrapbooking Board. Guess I was confused. LOL! Sorry!

If you want the little pic...here is the direct link:

Edited because I can't figure out how to get it not to post the actual picture....

If anyone else is looking for just the picture, copy the above and then take out the $ signs (2 of them)

if you want it to look like the above and take you to the page, copy this one and take out the $ signs (all 4 of them)

Well, the code is in the URL and IMG part... if you break those, it won't post as a picture. Basically, the URL part tells you where to go when you click on the IMG part. I think of it kind of like a math problem if that makes any sense...

The signature editor will do the work for you on making a link. You have to mess around with it, but I've done it before and it works.

Ok so I think I am in. I am going to get some ink tomorrow so I will be good to go as far as pics. I am pretty rusty so hopeful it won't take me too long to get warmed up. I haven't scrapped since April!!! :eek:

:woohoo:

I am so excited! I know I won't be on much on Sun or Mon because I have things to do (I actually have to go in and do some preofessional development hours on Mon and Tues - boo), but hoping to get things done on Sat and get some ideas to scraplift later! Lol

Ooh - I hope I have time to join in! We leave for vacation in the morning, so I have to do about a thousand loads of laundry and pack. I'll try to check in if the kids are napping at the same time, but DH is working so that might be my only chance. Sad
