Crafty Days

What is better than spending some relaxing time with a friend making cards?  Not much.  My friend's husband took these photos of us on Easter weekend.

Here is the journaling from my layout:

It was more than making cards. 
It was the luxury of drifting in and out of a room, filled with supplies, when we felt like it. 
It was talking or working in silence.
It was sharing ideas, having someone to complain to about what didn’t work and someone to praise what did. 
It wasn’t work or a chore; it was creative and relaxing. 
It was a lovely crafting weekend with my best friend.

The layout is for Two Peas's NSD challenge to use bright colors.  This isn't a palette I gravitate towards in scrapbooking - more in cards.  The photos went very well with yellow, turquoise and a touch of red which I also pulled from the circle paper from Echo Park.  Some of the circle embellishments are stamped with a retired Stampin' Up! set 'Big Flowers.'  It has gotten a lot of action on my scrapbook pages.

Thanks for visiting today!  Hope you are having a fun weekend with those you love.
