Well very nearly flummoxed by the Craft Barn's letter of the fortnight being "K" and my own challenge of finding a "special day" to illustrate!
Fortunate for me there is a great school site to help out at such moments and there is was - Kissing Friday.
Apparently the first Friday after Ash Wednesday where English schoolboys were entitled to kiss the girls without fear of punishment or rejection. Sadly this custom waned in the 40's.
- Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm a lapsed crafter of late but still managing my diary Scrapbooking, plus cards as required. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, not really got back to the latter since the pandemic. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I am a Christian.

I did wonder what day you'd find - never heard of Kissing Friday - and I went to an all girls school... Your page is fabulous, well done you!!
Love the page BJ. I'd never heard of Kissing Friday either. Anne x
Well done on your find - it's nice to keep a theme going although I'm not sure what we are going to do with some of the letters?!?!?
Ooh what a fab colourful page BJ, and well done you for sticking to your theme, brilliant job sweetie. Ha ha ha, I'm stumped for a minute but will find something I'm sure!!!!
Oh, good find for your personal challenge with this alpha challenge! Love the bright colors!
Never heard of Kissing Friday, sounds like fun, as are your pages.
LOL even if there wasn't such a day it would have to be invented! I love the contrast between the lime green and the red lips (are they die cuts?)
Fantastic colours and what a nice expression!
Beautiful vibrant colours, its a new phrase to me but a great expression.
Never heard of that one but you've done it beautifully - love the bright green and red lips!
haha can you imagine the chaos in schools if that custom was still going????
Well done on finding a theme BJ and great work!!! xxx
Well done for finding kissing friday BJ lovely vibrant page not heard of this before so I've learnt something too!
How original ! glad it had died out by the 50's as I'm sure I wouldn't have wanted to be kissed by the boys I went to school with!
Love the lips on your pages
Visiting from the Craft Barn - Wow, such a vibrant spread :0)
I never ever thought of the word kiss much less kissing. What a great idea with wonderful colors!
Funny choice - great idea!
We cane to see which occasion you'd chosen for such a difficult letter. Well done, great page.
That's great - the colors rock.
