PTI's SAF - Breakfast Bake and Take

My first card to post for PTI's SAF which you can access Here 
These are the colors and sketch that I chose.  
Colleen and I spent the whole morning preparing the dough and tea dyes (haven't made anything with them yet) and so this is my first card to post.  Good thing we have until Monday to post cards.  Unfortunately, we have to stop at 2:00 pm Pacific Time to get ready to go to a wedding.  Colleen's nephew picked today of all days to get married.  Just kidding.  Anyway, we have all day tomorrow to catch up.

SAF 2013 - Friday Night - Meet and Greet

My BFF, Colleen and I will be spending SAF together again this year.  We were fortunate enough to attend the first SAF in Cinncinati and had so much fun. And, I was down here last year for the on-line event. Here is our first picture on Friday Night for the Meet and Greet.  Actually, I have been down in Portland (from Seattle) since Thursday, the 15th and will stay until, the 29th, which is my dad's 93rd birthday.  We always have such a fun time crafting together.  When we are not together, we often get on Skype and craft together.  It's like we are in the same room.   For those who don't know, we have been best friends for about 56 years.  So excited to get started tomorrow.
