More frolick!  Train... do you see it?  Ellen has two boys so dresses just don't really go... so the train was a  perfect idea! Loved it!  And Annie made a sweet heart with a Rumi quote on the background.  Love the dresses! And the blue background one is filled with cookbook pages... so clever! and the pink ones are pure sweetness!  Three girls on left, Anne, Ellen adn Sarah were in the youth group back in the days when I was the girl's youth director.  Oh, we have many fun memories packed into their high school years.  It's really special to have such dear friendships with each one of them.

Sweet Home Alabama! This is my "up the street" friend, Paula,  who's sons are Sam's best friends! Paula made the perfect painting! She has three boys so dress painting.. hmm.. just wouldn't fit in boyland.  I love the Sweet Home Alabama... it makes me very happy and actually proud to live in this southern state:)

When I look at all these paintings, I am just amazed by the individuality, the story that goes into each one, the love and thought that goes into the paint and canvas... THE BEST PART is seeing their happy faces as they looked at their finished creation.

Hanging out with sweet friends, lots of paint, torn book pages and glue... glitter and good food and drinks..turned a regular Friday night into a truly magical one.

Thank you all for coming!  You all made it SO MUCH FUN! 

xxxoo,
