I'm still here

I haven't dropped off the face of the earth... just been busy.

Busy chatting and staying up all night and cooking and chatting and chatting and chatting.

Cheryl and I are having a great visit... even though we haven't really done anything. Isn't that the best thing about old friends? You can hang around all day and night and never run out of things to say.

I wish I had some pictures to show you, but Mr. P had my camera in North Carolina and Pennsylvania for the past few days. He's home now, so I should be able to get some shots of Cheryl and me eating and chatting and cooking and doing nothing and...  you get the picture.

I do, however, have some pictures of my March ATCs to share with you. The theme was chosen by Cory this month and was "Free for All". She sent each of us a package of embellishments and we could do anything we wanted with them. Here's what I did:






Pretty random, eh? But there was a method to my madness. I actually started out making one big 'picture' and then cut it up into cards, so they're like puzzle pieces and together they make this:


It was fun.

April's theme is "Paperless". I have about a million ideas for this theme (it was my month to choose), but I haven't started them yet. Cheryl and I are planning on spending some time doing these together... but we'll see if we have time between the chatting and eating and cooking and shopping and staying up all night...

I'm glad you are having a great time, but it did not escape my attention that there was no mention of "marking papers" amongst all that chatting and cooking, etc. LOL What was hubby doing in Pennsylvania and North Carolina? (Inquiring minds want to know!)

I can tell that you and Cheryl are having lots of fun chatting, eating and shopping. Girlfriends are the BEST.

Fun seeing how your ATC were made in one and then cut into six. You are way too creative and talented!

I have been working on Paperless and having fun.

Dental appointment tomorrow. I can not believe that I am looking forward to going to the destist but oh the pain is awful.

Hugs to you and Cheryl

Sounds like you and Cheryl are having lots of fun! I like how you created one big ATC and then cut it up in to little ones :o) Very creative!

The paperless is turning in to quite the challenge, but I am up for it. Looking forward to seeing what you and Cheryl come up with.
