The Paper Variety Week 17 Sketch Challenge

For this challenge at The Paper Variety (click here for their website), I made a layout. Now I'll be honest, I haven't been making many layouts lately, basically because I just prefer making cards. The challenge was to make a card, layout or other paper project using the sketch below:

Here is my layout:

Finished Layout: 12" x 12"

Cardstock: Embossed Blue, Teal, Green, Purple, Orange and Patterned Paper
Cricut Cartridge Cupcake Wrappers Scallop (Girly) (Button 37 Shift Toppers)
Cricut Cartridge Cindy Loo "Best Friends" welded
Cricut Design Studio
EK Success Scallop Circle Punch
EK Success 1 1/4" Circle Punch
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Swiss Dots
Sizzix Embossing Folder Plaid
Mounting Tape

My best friend's name is Trish. We have been friends for, well, over 30 years (geez, it really has been that long, hasn't it?) We have been through just about everything...good and bad, happy and sad, and everything in-between. I don't know what I would do without her. I'm glad that she is in my life.

I hope everyone has a best friend. I think friends are important to have. In addition to Trish, I have several other good friends that I treasure. I really feel that my life is blessed with my friends.

Challenge yourself...whether it is to make a card or a layout or talk to someone new and become a friend...just imagine what you could do.....
