Friendship Makes Life Colorful

I taught this Workshop on the Go this month using the Bella Paper Packet & My Stickease, My Acrylix Buttoned Together stamp set, Hollyhock stitched ribbon, and foundry tabs. I just finished putting pictures and journaling on my pages and wanted to share them with my scrapbook club members and you!

I searched through several recent years worth of pictures of my best friend, Cindy and I so I could scrapbook about our decade long friendship and how we met.  You can read my journaling in the picture at the bottom of this post.


I have dived back into my class notes from Stacey Julian’s online class, Library of Memories, recently and she reminded me that one of the most important things about scrapbooking is documenting the stories behind the photos. It’s all about the relationships you have with the ones you love!

So instead of just putting who, what, when, where…I included the WHY in my journaling. This will mean so much more to my children and my grandchildren someday when I’m not able to look over their shoulder and tell them how I met Cindy and why we remained friends for so long. That is a priceless gift to them from me.

Here are few close-ups of my layouts along with the journaling I included on this layout. Enjoy!





  1. Love the the story even more! Can't wait to make some memories in CA.

  2. sweet!!! Even sweeter since I've been a witness to your friendship so many times!

  3. Love your "Friends" pages. Really lovely. Thanks for sharing.


Thank you for taking the time to comment and have a blessed day! Pamela
