I went Saturday and hung out with a great group of scrappy friends. After not seeing them for nearly 2 years, it was great seeing them! Sometimes being a mom and wife keeps us so busy we forget we need friend time too! Being with the SOTTS (sisters of the traveling scraps) again reminded me how much I love each and every one of them!
Emily was busy with her band ensemble group this evening. They played at the 4 - H banquet. They have been playing together for 3 years now. Over the years, they have become good friends.
Scrapping the team picture from Tyler's senior year made me reflect back on friendships. A few of these boys have played ball together for years. They have built up a great friendship. I have a friendship with the SOTTS built over years and Emily has a friendship with the ensemble group built over years. These friendships are built because of a common interest in something.
Moral of the story is to put yourself out there and be a part of something. That is where the best friendships are built. When you have a common interest in something it takes away some of the social anxiety a lot of us have. You already have something to talk about.
This is the last team picture for baseball I have to scrap for Tyler. Boo!!!! 14 years of sports sure flew by!
I used one of the sketches in this months Create magazine put out by Create Scrappers. They put out a monthly digital magazine and for FREE. You can't beat that!
For the added little details that make the layout, I did some hand stitching and stenciled a banner using Gesso. I then used a silver sharpie to color the Gesso'd banner.
Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!
