New Friends

I really had a lot of fun with this layout.  It did not go in the direction I had planned for it to, but that's ok, I'll save that idea for another day!  I've been wanting to create a layout using just some strips of paper and also a layout using the negative parts of a die cut.  Think I used chunks instead of strips, and the butterflies were punched, not a die cut, but I really like it.



Panic mode has set in.  I leave for KY and a U-haul in 19 days. I still have a house not ready to move in, a full household to pack up, and husband determined to drive 13 hours straight through.  Which traveling in a U-haul will probably make it at least a 15 hour drive.  But, I am not stressed!  Yeah, right!  It's all great, going to be one big adventure.  Why I've never driven this far by myself.  And truly I will be by myself in the car, even though I'll be following the U-haul, I'll be myself all alone in the car... and I can sing as loud and as long as I want!  Anyone have any song suggestions to keep me pumped up and energized... oh and calm for when I get lost.  Because I have no doubt, I will get lost, at least once!  And while I'm lost, I wanta be singing fun window rattling songs!

You are so adorable! Love the layout and the negative butterflies (Must. Punch. More... tee-hee!) with the bling. LOVE IT!!!

Enjoy the control of the radio... and good luck driving that far. How are you getting back home? Is it YOUR car you are driving, or the kid's? Are you going to see the sights on the way back?

I agree with Sondra; the negative butterflies are brilliant. I think the nicest thing is how the blue in the photo pops off the page because of your great color/paper choices.

Wow! Brave girl doing all that driving alone. Good luck and I send my wishes for a safe journey.

Love what you did with that punch, I should try that, fabulous idea! Wasn't it nice to meet Elvis Bear in person?

Can't wait to see you! Even if it's just gonna be for a bit!
