friends always


My husband and his long time friend thought I was stopping to tie my shoe when we were hiking together last year.  I was really falling behind to snap a photo of them.  They have been friends for a very long time.  Even so during this long walk, Lenny told her some stories of his time in college and a cute trick his Mother played on him that she had never heard.  I enjoyed hearing them again, too.  I just realized, I haven't added the date to this page.  I'll do that.

Today's layout is for two challenges - Scrapbooker's Anonymous for using chipboard and a sketch of the week.  Layout is based on the weekly sketch from Shimelle.com.  I turned the sketch on its side and used a larger photo (5x7).  The journaling is hidden behind the photo.


There is lots of sparkly here as I used quite a bit of homemade mist made from Ranger's Vintage Photo ink, water and gold Perfect Pearls powder.  The leaves were first painted and then stamped with Staz-on so the ink wouldn't run when I misted them.  The leaves at the top are green, then they go to fall colors with the brown at the bottom to represent a lifetime friendship.


Thanks for visiting today!
