I was inspired by the sketch and phrase 'together' from Bird is the Word and the idea of having a banner on the layout from {Create} Make It Happen. So here is a layout of some of my favorite pics of my childhood girlfriends, taken some years back by a local studio... just a layout to celebrate the wonderful years of our blessed friendship.

This is the sketch from Bird is the Word:

 Here are some close ups:

The journaling reads:

From Barbie Dolls to playing catch
From chasing boys to passing tests
After all these years, I'm thankful we're still together
You girls made my life so much brighter

I'm using Basic Grey (background paper), Prima (patterned paper), Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and Ranger Distress Ink to add color to the background. The chipboard bits are Maya Road (flourishes) and Dusty Attic (photo corner) and painted in a matching tea blue. Banner and scalloped circle are cut from Slice, punched border shapes at the bottom and butterflies are from Martha Stewart punches. Flowers and title alphas are Prima. Stickpin and pink rosette from Etsy.

Thanks for looking, do head on over to Bird is the Word and {Create} to check out their current challenges :) I hope I'll be able to get online again by the end of this week, it's been so busy lately, I hardly have time for anything... I've got something new brewing... can't wait to share my new venture hehehe :)

Have a lovely week ahead ladies!
