Every now and then, I host a play date at my house. It's all about finding the child inside of you and letting her play. Today....a perfect play date! Eleven of us, gathered in my basement studio for chocolate, food, and creative play! Here's Shelly & Karen:
From left in the back, Tanny, Karen, Sherri, Peggy
In front, Shelly, Judy, Rose, Kathy & Kathleen
Colleen & I were taking the photos.
We all had lunch at Zamparelli's where I presented Nancy with her new cigar box purse. I do think she liked it!
Today, we made star books with tags using the Bind-it-all. Here's one that Shelly did using bosskut dies. Oh dear...I might have to have some of these dies. They are just so delicate and intricate..I just love them!
Karen did this one using stamps
And Peggy made this one using 3D pop-ups:
Mine is called "My ABCs"
And it's made to look like a sampler:
I used Ranger ink to distress the tags and tried to place the pages in the color of a rainbow
It seems that every time we meet, there are always leftovers from lunch. The girls will put them in the refrigerator to keep throughout the afternoon. But every time, Sherri seems to leave hers behind. So today, she literally put her car keys on top of her leftovers inside the refrigerator. That way, she couldn't go home without it! LOLOL!
Such an amazingly talented and fun group. I am so honored to have each of these gifted women as my friends.
Good food, chocolate, friendship and creative play. Life is perfect!
