Best Friends

Hi everyone! Wow, Thanksgiving is already next week! We always decorate for Christmas at Thanksgiving so I am starting on my Christmas gifts so I will have pretty packages to put under the tree next week. My project this week will be going to my daughter's good friend. Of course I had to use the Best Friends Imagine Cartridge.

I started out with a flat panel canvas, I used Tim Holtz's Tattered Rose crackle paint. I then used a pretty pink flower pattern from pg. 42 on a basic shape. Then I used just the frame on the bottom of page 21 with the last pattern on pg. 44.Then I made the Best Friends tag on pg. 13.I sewed on the frame & tag & used pop dots so it would stand out.I inked everything with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink.I also inked my vintage seam binding with the same ink.

Very fast simple & easy but such a great gift!

Friendship is not a Competition

This layout was hard for me because I like to match my papers to my photos, but I have conflicting colors & needed something neutral. I just love this new paper from Cosmo Cricket! Circa 1934.
I love this photo & am so happy that I got it. My daughter & her friend have been friends for 7 yrs. & even though they are on opposite teams they still cheer each other on.
I used Sesame Street Font Cricut Cartridge for the lettering.
