Friendship - Scrapping Everyday Miracles

Hi! Today is Challenge 6 over at Scrapping Everyday Miracles. The topic for the challenge this week is Friendship that goes the distance.

It is in our friendships that we often find so many miracles and blessings.  We all have people in our lives who come and go, but there are those who stay close no matter what happens.  Create a page focusing on the blessing of a friendship that has gone the distance.  It can be a friend you've known since high school, or someone you've worked with, a neighbor you’ve known for years, or a friend you've met online!  Someone who has been there for you through thick and thin.  Share what makes the friendship so special that you're thankful to God for bringing them into your life.

Scrap Twist:  use a layered title and add something thick and something thin on the layout.

I am lucky enough to have a couple of wonderful best friends. I am very blessed to have both in my life. I decided to focus on the friend I have known for the longest. We have been friends for 20 years, so I wanted to create a layout dedicated to our friendship.

As SEM's August Guest Designer I was able to use some sponsor product from Tattered Inspirations! I loved playing with the beautiful kit I was sent from them. The crochet lace & doily, stick pin, buttons and book page are all from the kit I received. I even used the ribbon that the kit was tied with! I made the satin lollipop flower for this layout.

I cut the title out on my neglected Cricut using the Paisley cartridge and I did some hidden journaling on a vintage index card I received in a ephemera kit from Yolanda!

I had a fun time creating this layout and it was nice to honor such a wonderful friendship!

I hope you will join us at Scrapping Everyday Miracles!
