Craft it Up with Friends! Layout a Week

Would you travel 250 miles to craft with friends?  That's exactly what I did a couple of years ago!  I documented our fun in my Smash Book for the Layout a Week.

While living in NC about five years ago, I met my scrappy soul sister Paula from Scrap Your World via Facebook.  We later crossed virtual paths with Donna K from at Studio 307 and formed an awesome bond based on shared indie shop owner experience, a love of paper arts, and support and encouragement.

I met Donna K and her sweet mama Sandra (above middle and right), in person, on her visit to the DC area in 2013.  We hatched a plan for all of us, including Paula, to see each other in NC later in the year.  While vacationing there with my family, I met up with these gals in Raleigh for some of the most fun I've ever had. 
First off, they laid out a spread of snacks, awesome lunch and dessert.  Add to that a lotta laughs and a little crafting on the side and it was a zany, good time!  So much so, I can't wait to get back to Paul's crafting oasis, her Scrap Cove!!  Seriously, she has a separate craft studio,  AWAY from her house.   Check it out here.

Looking forward to creating future memories with these girls!
