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!
