FNC 6.24.11

Trish Butler was the hostess during Friday Nite Challenge at SOC.  We had 40 minutes on each project. Her theme for the nite was ‘Best Friends’.  It was a challenge because I am blessed with so many wonderful friends.  These 3 Rhoda, Janiece and Veronica are the ones I talk to on a weekly basis. I had a hard time finding photos of my friends so the next time I see them it will be a KODAK MOMENT.  We had to create a layout including the questions below.  Instead of the 3rd question I used a quote that reflects their friendship to me.
1.    Where did you meet your best friend(s)?
2.    What make your best friend(s) so special to you?  How do your friend(s) inspire you?
3.    What two things you have in common that really make your friendship special?
  I usually type my journaling but my printer had no ink.  Acid free pen to the rescue!

Products Used:  An old pp and Wood Accents by Bo-Bunny 'Earth Splendor' that I have had for years, Me & My Big Ideas soft spoken embellishment

1st Challenge
Use a dress form and make a cute card: 1cardstock & 2 different sheets of pattern paper.  Embellishments of your choice

2nd Challenge
Card to your best friend:  1 Cardstock of your choice, 2 Pattern papers of your choice but it must be either punched or cut a decorative boarder around three sides of the paper and the straight side must be adhesive at the fold of your card,  Image must be matted on cardstock,  2 sentiments on your card one must have “BEST FRIEND ARE FOREVER FRIENDS”  Also matted on cardstock and ribbon embellishments.

Growing Up

Look what I created for Platinumscraps!  When I saw the pagemap I didn’t think photos, I thought digitals!   I made a recent purchase of about 10 digital images from Mr. Robert Jackson.  WOW!  It was a hard selection.  His digis truly speak to the soul.  That’s what got my inspiration going in this 2 page layout using the digis that reminded me of ‘Way Back When’.  Growing up then is totally different from now.  We had REAL fun.  The journaling speaks from my heart. 
Tell me what your favorite activity or memory was when you were Growing up. 

Products Used:
Pink Paislee Starlight alphabet stickers, element stickers, Pink Paislee Made in the USA & Dream Big pp, Martha Stewart edge punch, Recollections bling & ribbon, Bic Mark it markers, Digital images by Mr. Robert Jackson
