True Friendship

>> Friday, June 22, 2012

Sometimes, I get so caught up in scrapping about my family and what is going on in our lives that I don't think to record my friendships.  

In the layout I'm sharing today, I wanted to highlight a very special friendship I have with a woman I truly consider to be my sister.  No, we're not blood sisters, but we are certainly as close as sister's might expect to be.

I love that good friends walk together through life. And since I used a gridded paper for the background, I was able to easily write my about our 'walk' together directly on the background paper.

I'm a big fan of having tabs that stick up above the top edge of my page.  They look great, add a little unexpected dimension and still fit nicely inside my albums. Here, I used the Victoria Park Journal Cards to add the effect of tabs.

I love using the 6x6 pads to create my own embellishments.  For the flower below, I simply punched a couple of shapes out of the small-scale patterned papers and added a brad.

Overall, you'll see there are a lot of details added to the page but it still retains the feeling of having white space to allow the eye to rest.  Clustering makes it possible.

Yes, one of the things I love most about Lily Bee papers is the grid pattern. It makes it so easy to line up journaling and other page elements. The more I use Lily Bee products, the more I see how they are cleverly designed to make scrapbooking easier. It's the little things like this that really count!
