So DramaQueen wanted to kick off summer with a party and a Coachella theme, where everyone would dress up as hipsters.  I just figured out that hipsters is a throwback to ‘hippies’.  Yes, I’m that old.

I should have said no to the party, but I knew there would be some awesome photos to scrapbook and believe it or not….DQ even ASKED me to take pics of her and her friends (before the party started of course).

blog hip 1The design is based on Sue Sykes‘ August sketch for Canadian Scrapbooker magazine‘s Sketchy Challenge.

I really wanted to crash the party because I probably have some authentic hippy clothes somewhere in my closet. ha ha ha
