Crop For A Cause Giveaway

Boy, do I have a GIVEAWAY for you! If you live or will visit Chicago during the weekend of March 1 - 3, 2013, you can enter to win a FREE TICKET (value US$55) for this worthwhile charity event in Roselle IL on Saturday, March 2nd! I have been attending since the first one back in 2007 :)

My sweet friend and organizer, Laura Machonis, was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (M.S.). She sprung into action to raise money while she is able to because that's the type of person she is...she is my HERO! Visit her website regarding all that she does - she is just AMAZING! --> Crop For A Cause.

HOW? One lucky commenter will be the winner! Just let me know what is your favorite thing about a crop - the food, the goodie bags, the people...what makes you attend one :) Details in the image below (click to enlarge)...


Here are pictures from past events...





The deadline to enter is 11:59PM CST on Tuesday, February 19th 2013! So leave your comment in this post! Good Luck!

I'll leave you with a project I created from one of the crop that hasn't been shown yet - an altered cookie tin using Australia-based Grand Studios' products with Spellbinders™ Paper Arts' die templates!


As always, thanks for stopping by!

Hi sweet lady! :) I wish I lived nearby because not only would I love to help this great cause, but I'd get to scrap with you. Love your altered tin with the beautiful color scheme and pretty, pretty flowers.

Your cookie tin is adorable.
Love those papers :)
Wish I could attend one of your crops..but maybe in the future.
But I will answer your question anyway ;)
I don't go to many crops, but my reason for going is just to spend time with my friends :)

Awesome tin!
We never have any fun crops like this in our area. Would love to see one.

My favorite thing about a crop is getting to meet new people, getting my albums updated and having an excuse to eat poorly for a day!

I have never been to a crop before, but I am looking forward to meeting friends and having some uninterupted time to finally have my pictures tell the whole story! Thanks for the chance! Stacey O.
