My Creative Scrapbook Guest Designer " OLD FRIENDS"

Wow what beautiful papers!! The November Kit from My Creative Scrapbook features the yummy "Friendship Collection" from Teresa Collins. I have had this photo of my Grandma (right hand side) & her friends & was just waiting for some papers... I seen these & thought "YES!!". I altered the pic to give it a blue tint. I think that helped hide the some of the graininess from enlarging the photo.
I cut a ring using to hold the photo as a frame. I always gravitate toward circles in my layouts!! I used a Martha Stewart border punch for the black card stock under the pic & added a rub on to the photo. The little pink lettering was cut from one of the quote boards in the kit.

My title work was done on the PC in a Word document. I just spaced the font far enough to be punched with a circle punch, printed on 12x12 paper that I cut down to 8.5 x11, then adhered each letter to a larger black card stock circle. I inked the edges with Distress Broken China ink & added some pink Liquid Pearl drops. The letter "toppers" are from KI memories & are a glitter border sticker that I cut & placed on top. I then used some foam squares to mount the letter to the layout & to give it some depth. The PC is a great place to make title work!

The circle is trimmed with a die cut made with a Sizzix die on my Big shot.I The chipboard flowers are also part of the Teresa Collins collection. I added some Liquid Pearl pink droplets scattered about the background to bring some color to the layout.
I had sooooo much fun with this layout!! I just love old photos , don't you???
Thanks so much friends for taking a peek!!!
