Viva La Diva Swarm!

Tiaras, pajamas, massages, "diamond rings', strawberry Belgian waffles, trophies, midnight madness, and ice cream sundaes... Oh, we DO know how to have a Scrapbooking Crop!!!

Another wonderful Cricut Swarm has come and gone....but the memories will last a lifetime. This is the group photo of all of us with our Mini-Me's! Our challenge was to create an 11 1/2" paper doll of ourselves, and these ladies did an awesome job!

These are just a few! It was so much fun recognizing our friends by their characteristics, loves, and expressions of their personalities. There were some serious trophies given for this competition!! (The most coveted pieces of plastic in all of Florida!!!)

Our next surprise was the opportunity to try out the Cricut Cake!!! It was really fun, and we learned a lot about Gum Paste. It was a little bit of a learning curve, but easily handled. It will be a lot more fun to tackle at home.

It wasn't exactly an Ace of Cakes prize winner, but not shabby for a very first attempt! The great part is that there is no waste with the gum paste. I can keep working with it, and make bigger and better decorations every time! This is totally fun!!!

Last, but not least, here are some of us enjoying a wonderful hand wax treatment after having our hands massaged by our friend Pat! Oh, what a treat after a busy scrapping weekend ..... ahhhh! Viva la Divas, forever!!!!

We are already saddling up for our next Round be held June 25-27, so, if you want to swarm with us, you'd best be a' gettin' ahold of me pretty soon to reserve your spot! She'll be fillin' up, and you'll be out in the cold, pardner!!! Wouldn't want that, ya' hear!!

Happy crafting ~

Betty, The SWARM was great and my goodness I sure had a lot of cute stuff to take home...Seems everyone had a wonderful weekend together! I'm trying to get a really good excuse not to go to New Orleans and come to "The Roundup". I'll have it figured out by the end of next week. So partner, I sure hope to there! Happy Trails, Linda
