In Real Life

Several months ago I had the chance to visit with some scrappy friends on the west coast, most of whom I have known for years. With the exception of one, I had never met them in real life! I was in the Seattle area for a Fair Trade workshop and added on an extra day so that I could meet the girls at the beach. We had SO much fun. 

After lunch on the day of my departure, we had a group picture taken by the restaurant's friendly hostess. It was a bit blurry but still a treasure. Here we are, together, in real life.


We sure packed a lot of fun in those last 24 hours. (The other girls had the whole weekend.)


Then off again to catch my plane.


Supplies: Patterned paper-October Afternoon, Simple Stories. Chipboard-Crate Paper, Basic Grey. Labels-Jenni Bowlin, October Afternoon. Brad-Simple Stories. Flair-Basic Grey. Bitty bag-Webster's Pages. Letter stickers-October Afternoon. Sheer letters-Heidi Swapp.

 Good friends, good food, and a couple of art projects to top it all off. In fact, I'll have to share those projects one day!
