My Creative Scrapbook Guest Designer "FARAWAY FRIENDS"

Hello Friends! I was lucky enough to be asked to Guest Design for My Creative Scrapbook using their November Main Kit that features the Teresa Collins "Friendship" line. This was quite an honor & I must admit I was a bit humbled!!
The inspiration for the layout was a photo of my mother as a little girl with her friend! I wanted to play on the friendship theme... so all of the layouts are about friends! My mom was born in 1922, so I figured she was around 5 or 6 in this photo! I am amazed how the older photos are so much better than the ones from the 70's & 80's The photo paper quality is amazing!

The Friendship line is blue, white & black, however I wanted to play with the masks that can with the kit , so I tossed in some red card stock. I used the Tim Holtz mini mask & some Black Soot Distress ink for the masking. I then used this masked card stock to accent the wonderful papers. I also placed some of this behind the Teresa Collins clock transparencies. The flower was made from the same papers & had a Petaloo silk base for some dimension.

I used a Fiskars Threading Water punch for the punched border. The papers come with such wonderful quotes & I wanted to use these! So I cut one out, inked it a bit with Distress Fired Brick ink & it filled an area that was sort of empty!! I also added the same punched border for continuity.

The photo frame is made from 2 main items, The paper part is cut from one of the quote boards. I added a cut KI memories glitter sticker in a pattern around the frame. A Bo Bunny rub-on was applied to the pic for some much needed detail!
Thanks so much friends! I will be posting more from the kits... so do not get tired of me!!!

You guys are the best!
