Sometimes you just seem to "click" with a group. This layout is about one of those groups. Ellie (my daughter #3) and these young ladies have been fast friends for many years. They get together regularly for "girls night" which sometimes includes photos. Love those photos!
I found the background paper a while ago so I don't remember where I got it and it doesn't have any info on the back (so sorry). It seemed so perfect for this layout that I took care to let some of the special meaning words show. A teeny tiny border allowed me some journaling space and not detract from the design. It's hard to see but the banner has a stitched line. After stitching I realized that maybe I should have done the straight line on the back so the front side would show a thicker line. So, that's one thing to remember the next time I want a wider stitched line.
Yep, that's my girl on the bottom :)
