Friends

Friends
Hello, friends! Nicole here with a friendship album I created for my best friend, Mischelle. We have been friends for a little over 25 years. Our friendship has always been so easy, and we mesh so well together. I created many albums for my family and a few friends, but I came to the realization, I never made Mischelle an album. So… I made it, and I just love it.
 
I created the inside of the book with a sheet of 6x8 patterned paper and added a tag, die cuts and the butterfly foam square. I kept it simple.
I love the flow of this two-page spread with all the beautiful cluster of embellishments. Playing with embellishments…creating layers makes my heart happy.
I backed the yellow chipboard frame with patterned paper and mounted it to the striped insert page using foam squares to add dimension and then added the picture and embellishments. I like that it looks kind of like a shadow box.
Notice how I tried to pull colors from the photos to use as the color theme of the page!? My friend, Mischelle always has a different color hair color when I visit, and I LOVE it.
This is one of my favorite pages from this album. I love the soft colors and the beautiful flowers and butterflies.
For those who look forward to my monthly albums… you know I always like to do something fun with the chipboard pages from the SNAP albums! I kept this simple using the rub-ons for the center of the page and the tab.
I adore this page with the cluster of embellishments at the bottom with the bird. Also, I placed the tab sticker at the top and tore some washi tape to go across the top of the photo.
When we are together…I always take a photo. I don’t care if we are wearing makeup or not because one day… We will both look back at these photos and wonder where did the time go? Are you ready to make a friendship album, yet?
I hope I inspired you today with my colorful, friendship album. I plan on giving this album to my friend when I visit her in May. Thank you so much for visiting today.
