Spring Time Fun!!!



Yesterday I participated in a little Spring Time Fun! I went to a Spring Party hosted by my friend Elena–everyone made gifts to swap with each other–it was a really fun “just the girls” day! I made some cute little people for some new friends and old friends as part of the gift swap. I used Maya Road keychain people (thanks for the idea Elena!) and decorated each one according to my idea of that person's style and their fave colors. Everyone brought me a small pic to put as the head–it was really fun! My favorite one is of Lead Fiskateer Cheryl Waters (above)–I just love how it turned out!!

Here are all the “people” and their people:

Melanie:

Georgia:
Gloria:
Sally:

Elena:
April:
Cheryl:

I made one more for a friend who could not make it (Anita–we missed you!). I forgot to take a pic of that one! I used the Teresa Collins crown print paper (which I won from a Desert Scrappers blog drawing!) and it was all pink and black and fun! I still have to make one for myself too.

I had a great time, had great food, and fun conversation. I had to get home to the kids and get Katie over to Girl Scouts so I could not stay as long as I would have liked. I hope we do it again–this group is all artsy, talented, and super nice ladies and I love all the fun thoughtful gifts they made for each of us!

The day ended on a bad note though as I was rear-ended by a teenager on the 215 coming home for Girl Scouts later that night. But Katie, Matt, and I are all okay (we are going to the Dr this afternoon to get checked out anyway) and I have that special “you'll wanna curl up and die if you hit me” insurance coverage so I am sure all will be fine. Guess when you drive as much as I do it is bound to happen!
