Creating for my friends... so great!!! A group of my friends decided to swap photos, and each of us would make a layout for the other. It was totally different than I expected. Creating a layout for a friend, someone I care about, with one of her photos, gave me a way of being creative that I had never experienced before...I wanted it to look beautiful, like me, like her....and somehow the combination felt like pure creative freedom...if felt easy, like riding a bike...and FUN!!!

Here is the layout I made for my friend Melanie:

The products I used: Pink Paislee "fascinating" paper line, Doodlebug red polka-dot velvet paper, some alphas, tickets, brads, various flowers (felt, paper, and Hambly cut from a dye machine), cream textured ribbon, bakers twine in teal, and a black circle border.

If you haven't tried this before (or lately) it:) You will find yourself somewhere wondrous...
