MFT: "Best Friends" 12x12 Layout

My best friend Bona ("LiveLoveScrap" on YouTube, aka "KeeponScrappin" on Blogger) and I met at Starbucks a few weeks ago to hang out and swap birthday goodies. I just love Bon... we have been best gals since the 2nd grade. No matter how busy and crazy our lives get, and how much time goes between visits, we always know we can count on each other and when we see each other, it's just like we saw each other the day before. It's always nice to have someone like that in your life. I'm happy to call Bona my best friend, the sister I never had. :-) Now that I have to wipe the tears away from my eyes (hehehe!!).... let me tell you a little bit about the lay-out.... :-)

I used paper from the Prima Strawberry Kisses paper collection, which Bona gave to me at a crop we attended a few months ago. I distressed the page with my Tim Holtz paper distresser, Glimmer Misted it with Iridescent Gold and edged it with Vintage Photo distress ink. The coffee girl stamp is from My Favorite Thing's "Miss you a Latte" A'la Mode Stamp set. I just LOVE this stamp set and it was perfect for the picture of Bona and me taken in front of Starbucks. :-) I colored her in with my Copic markers and At You Spica glitter pens. I used the MFT Die-namics banner strip die & Alphabet Stamp set to write out "Best Friends" and it fit perfectly! I also used MFT's Open Scallop Border die and cut out some of the My Favorite Felt in the brown color (from the "Beautiful Garden Collection.")

Check out the video on this layout HERE.

Hope everyone is ready for the weekend --- countdown, 1 day left 'til TGIF!!! :-)

Thanks for stopping by! :-)

I just can't wait til we're both 80 and still making mini's. LOL!!!! I can see it now...."come Ar you can turn that handle on the BigShot". LOL!! And, I'll still be busting out my nails with the rhinestones and can barely stay in the line with my Copics cuz I can hardly see. heehee Love your layout! Love ya Ar!
