Custom Folio 2: Martha and Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop 2017

At the encouragement of an artist I admire, I'm linking up my first piece of artwork to a Bloghop! It figures it's coffee themed, right?  It's the 2017 Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop. Thank you, Lisa (BZ Scrapper), for your confidence and inspiration.



My project story:
Martha is my second roommate at Close To My Heart's 2017 Convention who I am 
meeting in person for the first time. I've had the opportunity to talk with Martha a few
times on Facebook and here is my initial impression. She just makes me laugh.

Martha's favorite color is turquoise. She is a coffee-holic like me, seems fun, and full of energy. I'm thinking she is pretty spunky.  So, we shall see...  Oh, and she hates mornings about as much as I do although I think she caved in and signed up for the 5:30 a.m. 5K.  Uhhh, that wouldn't be me no matter how much coffee.  Go for it, Martha!

What I hope for Martha at Convention is that she has fun,  gets "away from it all", has a chance to reconnect with her hometown friends and enjoys some awesome java and conversation with a few new friends too.
