Just because and more

Our blog group, Tangled Up in Creativity, has a monthly challenge. The hostess for this month's challenge is Monica and she is so clever and sweet. To entice us all into participating, she sent each of the members two sheets of paper to use. Now how can you resist that? The papers are absolutely beautiful and I'm pleased with the results.

Further news, I've had such an exciting Saturday, Marlene, a/k/a Marlooney, a/k/a Disguised as a Grownup, came to visit me on and we had what a fabulous time. She is absolutely as sweet and as funny in person as she is on her blog. We had a fun time spending money at the local craft stores and since it was such a gorgeous day, lunch on the deck of a nearby restaurant overlooking the beautiful Susquehanna River. The only downside to the day was that she had to go home! Thought I would share a couple of pictures.

Marlene waving at you!

Lunch on the deck
