Friends Are Cool

My daughter is blessed with many great friends. Her two best friends live two doors down on either side of us and her dance troop is filled with wonderful, polite and enthusiastic friends.  This past fall my daughter's very cool friend, Lauren came over and we went to the mall for some girl fun and snacks! Lauren is such a delightful girl with wonderful manners and similar interests as Adriane. When I asked Adriane recently what she really liked about Lauren she said, "Mom, Lauren is so nice. She never says anything bad about ANYBODY ever...and she likes the same things I do..Disney and the mall and dance and stuff."

Well, that says it all doesn't it. I am grateful she has wonderful friends and proud that she appreciates them.

Here's the layout I made to remember that day based on a sketch from my talented friend, Laura Whitaker.

 And here is the sketch:

Thanks for a wonderful sketch Laura! I used the Christmas line from Bella Blvd in a non-Christmas-y way. and I paired it up with an older yellowswirl from Stampin UP!, Swiss Dot white and Bazzil pom pom trim.
I hope you are getting in some creative time!

I also wanted to mention some upcoming events you should be sure to check out"
