The Girls

I really like this picture with my friends. I've known them from my church back at our college. We do all sorts of things together. Outdoor adventures (cliff jumping, water fall hiking, ice caves, snowshoeing-kayaking), things around the church, and other social events.

This picture was taken at a Valentines Day Dance. Which was kinda a flunk. It was like an awkward middle school event. So we made the best out of it, got pizza, and played Apples to Apples in our dresses.

The sketch is based on a layout in the Creating Keepsakes Simple Scrapbooks Edition, a layout by Laura Vegas. The paper is from My Minds Eye, and this was a great way to use up a pile of random Thickers. This paper went great with our variety of dresses. I even used alcohol inks to change the colors on the pink flowers.

I'm going to enjoy some family time today. Wishing everyone a Happy 4th of July!


  1. I love the colors in this layout! So cute and feminine. :)

  2. Very pretty! Love the feminine colors, and your little flower cluster!

  3. Pretty layout! Love the flower cluster and all the strips of ribbon/lace!

  4. That is a great design! It's so pretty and feminine to show off your photo of the girls! Great idea changing the flowers with the inks. I never remember to do something like that when I am looking for the 'right' blossom! :)
