Best Friends

Time for another layout, this time it was an all-scrap layout (other than the cardstock base). I had a cute pic of my daughter and her BFF that I pulled off her iPod- this is a treasure chest of cute pics my kids take of them and their friends. I love uploading from their iPods every few months to see all the silly little photos they've taken!

I had been working on a layout for a class I'm teaching next month, and had a pile of scraps leftover from the kits I had put together. Several strips and scraps of paper from the American Crafts valentine collection, along with a scrap of red cardstock I had punched hearts from. All these scraps were making their way to the recycle bin when inspiration struck! Since I was working with a single photo, and had a pile of scraps I wanted to use, this sketch from Sketchabilities fit my needs perfectly:

After building layers with all of the scraps, I went over to my favorite challenge blogs for ideas on how to embellish. Twisted Tuesdays has a fun challenge going on right now, to use Washi Tape, and something that begins with the letter "T", "A" "P", or "E". I put 2 little strips of Washi up in the top right corner next to my little birdy rub-on (also from my stash, probably 5 years old!!), and then threaded a piece of Twine (for the letter "T") through the button. =) T
