Love is in the air

The girls have been apart too long! I am so lucky to be surrounded by so many crafty ladies. Unfortunately it is a rare occasion when you can get us all in the same room. My good friend Jessica was gracious enough to offer up her home for a little girlie afternoon of Valentine making. I never used to be into scrap booking or paper crafts, but since learning how to use resin in jewelry making, our two worlds have collided. I stopped off yesterday at my favorite scrapbook store, The Scraping Lounge. Debbie had some darling valentine paper I wanted to grab for this gathering. 

I arrived this afternoon at Jessica's and as usual she had gone all out! Paper, glitter, & buttons as far as the eye could see. Not to mention the fabulous girlie lunch she made for us. Jessica is a fancy lady. She had out her beautiful plates and even made raspberry drizzle for the fruit salad...yummy!

Sue & Renee working diligently.
After our lovely lunch, we settled in to the task at hand. The scissors flew, doilies & glitter soon took over the whole table! Mayhem ensued, but the good kind. Even Jessica's cats were scared. They took to hiding out in her bedroom.

Diet coke & is good :)

It was a good thing we had plenty of diet coke to see us through...

It really was a beautiful disaster.

Once the dust settled, we came out with this...

Not bad for beaders crossing over to the dark side of paper.
Dana we missed you! Get better! Jessica good job camera dodging:)
