Friends and Tattoos




Our family has a tradition that every August the truck is loaded up and we head 8 hours up to our friends cabin waaaay back in the woods in the U.P. (Since you may not know what the U.P. is, it's the Michigan's Upper Pennisula, you know over the bridge and thru the woods.....) This year I really looked forward to it because I was going to have some friends meeting me there for the weekend with their families. These were friends that I met over the internet and I think we have a pretty close friendship! Heather's husband Dustin, does fantastic tattoos and he had agreed to give my son one while we were there. I was kinda' dared (and you know who you are!) into getting a small one also. I've always used a little squiggly on my lay outs and envelopes so I choose that. (and no! to you people that think it's a cult sign!) When my daughter Angel asked if she could get one just like that I thought it was very kewl of her to want to do this!

I'm still hanging in there getting every challenge done at Willow Traders, this is the 9th one. The challenge was to lift a lo from selected DT Galleries. I chose to go with Zoa Barker's Friendship from the September ScrapBook Sussies and I used the Sussies August kit to complete it. I tried to cut the red paper to resemble the little squiqqly mark.
