FRIENDS!
~
I think that Helen Hancock is one of the
best photographers
I know.
Not only is her photography fantastic but
she is the Queen of Word Art.
Her layouts are simple yet powerful.
~
Helen had a link on her blog for a site about Word Art.
The gal's name is Bethany and she has
great quotes and thoughts to share with you.
~
I had to give it a try.
~
The picture I chose is very special to me and to the
girls in the photo. The photo was taken
about 1980 or so. These are 5 friends who were always
together. Now, in 2008... 28 years later,
they are still very good friends
despite distance.
~
When my daughter Wendy (2nd from left)
gets married in June, one of her showers is going
to be at a roller skating rink... how perfect for this group
with their little roller skates on in the photo.
Ah... memories!

My oldest daughter Kristin is 2nd from the right.
I predict their friendship will last a lifetime.

Have a wonderful weekend!
I can't wait to show you my new bedroom look
on Monday. Time for a change.

Hugs,
Joni
P.S. I didn't mention the other girls names as I didn't ask for
their permission.
