BFF


I got to catch up last Friday night with my best friend from high school.    My brothers band was playing at a festival in our hometown so it was a night of fun and getting together with old friends who still live there or close by.    I hadn't seen my best friend all thru high school in at least 6 years so it was great to spend several hours with here and partying together one more time.

I used the sketch at "Stick it Down" to make this layout. I had this single piece of Fancy Pants - The Good Life paper left and used it for my background.   then where I  knew my pictures would be on the page I just cut out a couple of the circles that were on the paper and then fussy cut them.   I matted my pictures in black and then had a rectangle scrap of black and white paper, matted it in black and then in white.   I used the circles for my journaling and cut the small one in half and put on the edge of my matted paper and then for the larger one I used pop-dots so it would have some dimension against the other black and white paper.     Black Thickers for my title and my layout is complete.    You can see the sketch below and click  HERE   for the details on this challenge.

My online scrappy friend Sandi (and we get to meet in person in October ---- YEAH)  told me about the challenge at the "Paper Issues" blog.    I will be entering my layout there too as there is still a few days left to enter.    The challenge there is Admit One and to use Fancy Pants products on your page.
Well my BFF and I were admitted to the fun night at the Soybean Festival in our hometown of Mexico, MO and I used the Fancy Pants - The Good Life collection for my layout, even using part of the paper I used to make my own embellishments.   The challenge here is for a great prize of the Fancy Pants collection  "Everyday Circus".   Who wouldn't like to win that great collection to play with.    So check out all the details  HERE.
