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.
