We are divided into 2 teams; team A has their release on 1st of each month and team B ditto on 15th. Ergo follows that it's time for the team B reveal. This month's theme is FRIEND.
We would like you to create a layout and interpret the theme "Friend" however you like based on the following sketch. You can journal as little or as much as you like, but your layout must incorporate this theme and the sketch below. Please make sure that we see some sort of journalling on your layouts and please tell us where your journalling is . Hidden journalling is perfectly fine.
Ideas for journalling: one of your current friends, a childhood friend, an unexpected friendship,what having friends mean for you, a friend that you miss or have lost, family member who is your closest friend, a scrappy/online friend, a special person that has touched your life, someone who has helped you out lately, a friend that you couldn't do without, your children's friends / classmates etc., your pet and the friendship you have with it.

Here is my DT layout for the July challenge on the theme of FRIEND - "Elsi and I"
All papers are from Swedish Pion Design's newest collection Grandma's Schoolbook.
Elsi and I have been friends for as long as I can remember. I'm the blond on the right and Elsi's on the left. I must have been about 3 years old and Elsi 4, so we're talking 1962. Our families were neighbours and as there were no kindies in those days, my mother had a couple of kids in day care in our home including Elsi.
Through thick and thin indeed, culprits in many crimes involving mum's cookie jar :))
Cut a very old Prima vine in two and placed on either side of the photo as a sapling/bush.
Layers of lace, lace, more lace, doily and muslin misted in soft soft shabby hues of blue, cream and pink.
LOVE that felt/doily/hessian/button yummy embellishment from Charm Koch's Facebook shop. One has to keep an eye out for the date/time that she releases her batches, they sell quicker than you can wink! It is also possible to place pre-orders if you have an invitation from Charm.

I had a lovely day with Patrici Cugnod and her beautiful family showing them some highlights of my home town. As they are staying for a whole week, they will have plenty of time to check out this and that. Here is first Patricia and her hubby Pascale:
In my next post I will share 3 layouts that I made for the CSI Case File # 28, here's a sneak of the colours;
Today is Monday in my parts of the world and it's the second week of our summer hols. I haven't disappeared from the surface of earth, just kept the hours by the computer to the very minimum. Still counting to at least 2 hours of commenting in blogland every day and still hardly any traces anywhere that I've been for a visit. Very frustrating I say.
Enough of the neggieness, here's to sunshine, icecream and a thick yummo book!
Take care, have fun! xoxo Eila
