Friends

If you've ever read my profile on my side bar, I mention that I have my own support group.......it is a fabulous group of women I've managed to become friends with because of my daughter Cortney. Our entire group, has either worked with Cortney in some fashion, or has a disabled child that Cortney is friends with. We are quite an eclectic group! Our ages range from 30's up to the 60's. (One friend is not pictured here) Lucky for us we all scrapbook! We try to get together as often as possible to scrap, go out to dinner or a movie, or just go shopping. When we get together......WATCH OUT! We are a wild bunch I tell ya! ; ) Although lately, life has been so crazy we haven't had the chance to see each other in awhile! Seriously, without these women, I probably would have gone crazy a long time ago! : )


I used Noel Mignon's Penny Arcade kit for this LO. (sold out!) I wanted the letters to look distressed, so I sanded them a bit.



Some of the lil' details...........


The current challenge over at Noel Mignon's blog is to create a LO about the special friends in YOUR life! Go HERE if you would like to participate AND see the other amazing LO's by the DT!!!
