Friends + Scrapbooking = Fun!

This past Sunday 8/18, I had some friends over to scrapbook at our house.  There was supposed to be four friends coming, but two had to cancel the last minute.  I set up two long tables in the living room (usually our exercise room), plus a folding card table.  Pearl arrived around 11:20, bringing me lunch from Daphne’s Greek Café!  We ate our lunch and chatted, then we scrapbooked and chatted.

I ended up taking a whole dining table, while Pearl took up the whole long folding table, ha ha.  I guess we liked to spread our stuff out!


After a while, Donna arrived and joined us!


Noodle hung out on the stairs and watched us scrapbook, keeping an eye on things below.


Noodle’s eye-view.


I wasn’t super-productive and only got one layout done.  This one.


I used the Amy Tangerine stitching template, exclusive to the Studio Calico August Scrapbook Kit, Marks & Co.  I stitched the “LOVE”, the arrow, and the star in the lower right corner.


I actually had these photos printed out for Project Life, but decided to use them for a layout instead.


I’m a little bit in love with that artsy arrow stamp in the Studio Calico August Project Life kit.  I love stamps that make me look more artsy than I really am!


Yellow and blue is one of my favorite color combos on layouts.  On this one I added in some gold too.


I loved having friends over to scrapbook together!  Hopefully it will be a regular occurrence around here.  I miss my crafternoons with my friend Cassi, who moved away!
