My Best Friend…

I am sure that most of you have the ONE special friend who has been with you through thick and thin, good and bad, and happiness and sadness….well Lynn and I didn’t have  quite such and easy journey. We were besties in high school, and then had a falling out in our early twenties, but then met up again about 5 years ago and havent looked back. She is an amazing friend, thoughtful, caring, funny, loving and the best thing of all is our kids get on fabulously.

So this layout is for you Lynn.!!!

WOW make awesome titles and I have used the ‘Friends in circle C310’ title piece for this layout. These circle titles are terrific and I have decided to back the chipboard with patterned paper in a contrasting colour to accentuate the title.

Tell me about your special friend…I love a feel good story!

Long Time no post…

..well it seems like it anyway. I have been really busy with a heap of personal (not so nice) stuff here, and have totally neglected my blog. Sorry to my regular readers!

I have also been busy creating, just cannot share just yet (secret squirrels)….but I do have one layout I can share that was posted on the WOW blog.



That is all…..and I might be a little quiet over the next few weeks, so apologies in advance
