Forever Friends

© Amber S. Pence

The friendship we have is so rare to find,
We hate to see each other in a bind.
We have made each other laugh so hard we've cried,
We feel each other's pain if we are hurt inside.
We always can find the right words to say,
To help us get through any dreadful day.
We have told our darkest secrets, with feeling no shame,
We will tell each other the truth even if we are to blame.
Thinking of you not being here makes me feel so sad,
We will have to look back on our crazy memories to make us glad.
The Miles between us can't keep us apart,
Because we will keep each other close at heart.

This week we bring you a special layout that was inspired by our current Round Robin Challenge. Scrapping about your best friend. Patti tells us that the photo is of Patti and her oldest and dearest friend Jane, taken back in the early to mid eighties which explains the crazy hairdo and god awful glasses.. Patti loves this picture of her and Jane because it shows just how much fun they used to have together just sitting on the stoop in her parents backyard. For those of you who dont know what a stoop is, it is a set of concrete stairs that lead from a front or back door...(It's a Brooklyn thing!!!) Now that we know a little of the history, we love it too.
Patti used an Swirlydoos older spotlight kit created with Prima product and the Pastiche collection. The scallop circle is an older Technique Tuesday chippie that we got in a kit a couple of years ago. She used Gilders Paste in antique gold and lightly added some Patina over it. Patti also used a Kaisercraft wood gate and altered it with the same Gilders Paste colors. The flowers are Prima, and were in her stash unopened until she did this beautiful layout. She even broke out some Distress Stickles and added to the bodies of the butterflies that were punched with the MS punches. Well we think this layout is special. Special in meaning and special because it is beautifully crafted. Congrats Patti. We love this one!!
