Hello Friends of this Blog - We are so excited to present a new challenge this week - Friends Forever.  Show us your cards, projects, layouts, and altered art that has anything to do with Friends and/or Friendship.  This theme is wide open, let the creativity begin.    

Those that have followed this blog for awhile know that I love layouts, and here is one of my grandchildren and their friends - all the parents have been friends for years, thus the kids see each other quite a bit. Here they were anxiously awaiting the start of Moana, enticed by buttery popcorn.
