Fun Summer Wednesday Debut

Can I just say, I love having teacher friends? I mean, it's kind of nice to have my work from home schedule...but sometimes it's kind of lonely. My schedule is jam packed on Saturdays, but nobody seems to be free for lunch or midmorning coffee on a Tuesday.

Barb and I have been scheming about Fun Summer Wednesdays for months. In fact I'm pretty sure there was still snow on the ground when the idea was first discussed. So after many weeks of waiting, and counting down the final days of school, the day finally arrived.

Fun Summer Wednesday (FSW): Week One!

Our very first FSW got off to a later start, as I had some errands to run this morning, and Barb was hoping to sleep in a bit. We met up at my place for lunch (yummy take and bake pizza minus the roma tomatoes that may or may not contain salmonella). After lunch I popped in a Sex and the City dvd and we down to the task at hand: SCRAPPING!

I managed to create two layouts, and a really big mess! Evidence:

Meet my mess, and a corner of one of my layouts

And a look at the other layout I completed, for this week's journaling challenge to journal about summer. So happy I got to play with this month's Studio Calico Kit!

We also had a fun little photography lesson after scrapping to prepare for next week's FSW plans, a photo date around Downtown Appleton! Perhaps we'll pay a visit to my favorite wall!

Yup, definitely love having teacher friends!
