Best Friends for Life

Happy the day after Christmas everyone!  I can't believe it's come and gone.  Lots of fun was had, paper was everywhere, and well, I'm ready to get back to a regular routine.  I haven't been in my craft room for almost a full week and I think was going through withdrawal.  Thank goodness I got down here today and whipped this up.  The subject matter - my best friend Brandy & I at my 40th Birthday party.  I think we look pretty good, don't you? (Only really nice responses to that question are allowed).  I as usual, started with a sketch.  This one is from Sketch Savvy.  These are the sketches I tend to stay truest to because Susan adds so many elements that are really right up my alley.  So, I didn't change much here, other than I added a background element from the Silhouette store that I have been admiring for weeks. I thought placing it over the very busy paper was a nice way to tone down the brightness.  And again, I'm still using my Kraft paper.  Love it.  I'll probably be using it for months to come.  I don't ever seem to get tired of it.

Paper:  DCWV - Black, Kraft Paper, K & Company Citronelaa
Silouette:  Background grid, all banners, title, scallop circles
Cricut Cartridges:  Flower Shoppe, Mother's Day Bouquet - flowers
Flourish:  Prima - Say it in Crystals
Ribbon:  My Stash
Stick Pins - Caroline from Caroline's Craftography
Ranger Liquid Pearls

  8. Happy 40! You look like a baby, not 40! I printed out the same sketch a while back because I thought it was such a nice one, but it's been just sitting on my scrap table. Seeing how pretty your layout is has inspired me to get moving with it. Thanks for sharing it.
