A Time for Everything

This is my entry for the Layers of Color Art Challenge

I have two friends I have known most of my life, well since the seventh grade anyway! Wow isn't that something? They are both so precious to me. I don't get to see them that much but when we do, we never skip a beat. And we have been there for each other and all the important stuff, weddings, funerals, and the births of our babies and newborn-recovery-month. We try to vacation together once every couple of years too!

Anyway, when we were in high school one of our things was to eat cheesecake together. Broke up with a boyfriend, oh bummer I didn't like him anyway!... let's get cheesecake! Quit the band... aw that stinks, time for cheesecake! Ace a math test- who hoo! Cheesecake time! Flunk an english test, NO WAY! Hey, I'm thinkin' cheesecake anyone? I think you get the idea! Now that we are older, its become cheesecake and a glass of wine :o)

There is a time to laugh and a time to cry
AND a time to eat lots of cheesecake with your girlfriends! ~Annonymous

This quote reminded me of my life long gal pals and this is a tribute to them. I hope this makes you laugh...for me it brings me tears of joy! Two friendships for almost 30 years! God has blessed me with so much... NOT to mention the extra fat dimples on my hinie! :o)

This is a 6x6 canvas board. I used paint, stamps, Layers of Color- Fleur Signature Art stamp set, and color pencils for the background. Altered photo, embelishments, ribbon, buttons, ribbon leaves, craft pearls(for hanger) and glitter glue for that girly touch!

I love it, Heather! It's so delicious, and girlie. Funny, I gathered up the ingredients to make cheesecake in celebration of my challenge blog grand opening! We'll think of you when "it's time for cheesecake" tomorrow night. Wish you were here to celebrate with us. And of course, you're (as far as I know) the first artist to make art for my new blog! What a fantastic start! Thank you, my sweet friend!
