Guess Who I Cropped With Today?

Cheri is in the Dallas area visiting her mother, Sandy, and they invited me over to scrap today.


We had a great day! I put together six layouts and sorted my latest photo prints into a storage binder while Cheri got messy creating backgrounds for some Week In The Life pages and creating a couple of double page layouts.


Sandy  has a lovely home and allowed us to root through her stash as we worked. She also put together a delicious 7-layer salad (although I think she added some extra layers!) for lunch and a yummy asparagus frittata for supper!


And as an extra treat, Cheri took me out to the backyard where I found the second bonus item on Rinda's 2013 Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt - a sundial. That's the final item I needed to complete this year's hunt!


Definitely a great way to start the week!

How much fun! It's lucky you two get to meet up once in awhile. Cheri and I keep trying to figure out a way, but the distance is just a little too far.

Wow, that sounds like so much fun---just hanging with your friends and doing a little (in your case, a lot) scrapbooking. The good food is just a bonus!
