Hey crafty friends! I’m back today, I’ll admit a day late, with my first August post for Scrap Our Stash. This month for the Golden Globe challenge we needed to be inspired by the movie Thelma & Louise and include the word friend somewhere on our layout. What I came up with was a friendship scrapbook layout using a cut file from the Paper Issues store.
I have been diligently working on going through old photos and scrapping the important ones, and yes gasp, throwing unimportant ones away. The photo on this page was taken are our sons first birthday party. The young lady on the right is my sister-in-law and the young lady on the left is my sister. The two young ladies on either side of me I have been friends with since birth and they are sisters as well! The other young lady is my friend Jaime who we met at church 15 years ago. We’ve all been through the ups, downs and sideways together.
The paper collection is a rather old Jillibean Soup collection called cold Avocado Soup. In addition to working on old photos I have been pulling out old kits to get used up. I’ve been challenging myself to use one before moving on to something new. It’s worked really well and I believe I’ve killed at least ten so far this year in addition to using some new things.
As you can see I backed each heart with patterned paper from the kit. I was pretty close to finishing the kit while making this layout, and the cut file helped use scraps rather than needing a whole sheet. The hearts also gave me a place for my embellishments. I also choose to put the word friend in a heart to meet the challenge, and so it wouldn’t be floating off in space.
This was really a fun challenge, and I hope you’ve enjoyed what I came up with. Now it’s your turn to join. Please remember to always leave me a link in the comments if you join so I can be sure to check your creation out too. Until next time…stay crafty!
