SEM Challenge #6

Hi everyone it is time for another SEM challenge... this challenge is sponsored by Tattered Inspiration which has the best vintage kits... the theme for this challenge was friends through thick and thin... here is the challenge...

It is in our friendships that we often find so many miracles and blessings.  We all have people in our lives who come and go, but there are those who stay close no matter what happens.  Create a page focusing on the blessing of a friendship that has gone the distance.  It can be a friend you've known since high school, or someone you've worked with, or a friend you've met online!  Someone who has been there for you through thick and thin.  Share what makes the friendship so special that you're thankful to God for bringing them into your life.

Scrap Twist:  use a layered title and add something thick and something thin on the layout.

My thick and thin friend is Laura... I met her 15 years ago and she has been there for me through everything... no matter where I have lived!  The best blessing is that our families get to be friends... it fills my heart with so much joy to hear my daughter call Laura's kids her friends.  This is a picture of our families in Rome this summer!

My thick thing on my layout is the fussy cut flowers that I layered... and the thin is the twine....

Once again I used Eyelets from the Eyelet Outlet....

Scrapping Everyday Miracles Challenge #5 and Eyelet Outlet Sample

I created this layout using brads from our wonderful sponsor over at Scrapping Everyday Miracles... The Eyelet Outlet....

I love that God has given my sweet 3 year old the best sense of humor!

 I used 2 monkey brads... one on the banner and one wrapped with baker's twine.  I used two orange rhinestone brads on the banner.  The glasses are new brads just released from Eyelet Outlet.  Finally I used teeny tiny white brads along the bottom under the blue trim and a green mini brad on the LOL sticker....
