aww, hugs to your friend. what a nice layout documenting your friendship!
What an amazing layout, Becky. But the journaling just about wipes me out. I'm so sorry to hear about your friend, Sarah. My prayers go out to her and her family.
Project - fall 08'
I've scrapbooked a photo from this shoot before, but it was just one of those wonderful days that will probably always come to mind when I think of the word “fall.”
Lately, this day has been much more vivid in my mind. My beautifully blonde friend in these pictures found out in July that she has Leukemia. She is on track with her treatments right now and it looks like she might be done with chemo by November - which makes me wish/long for another perfect fall day just like this one.
For the design of this layout, I knew I wanted to include several photos, but my photos were at 4X6 prints, so I had to cut them down to roughly 4X4. By trimming them, I was able to fit four on one 12X12. And I could not wait to use this pattern paper by American Crafts! I love the warm colors of all the papers, and how well they blend together to either give a warm feeling or fun and bright feeling. Plus, the textures and embellishments are just yummy :)
I can still recall the cool chill in the air, the great Margaritas we had @ 4:00 in the afternoon. It's been almost 3 years and 1+ scrap pages since these photos were taken, but I cannot think of MORE precious photos/memories than these with my sweet friend, Sarah. Today she is fighting Leukemia and can't just drive down to visit and act silly for a photo shoot. And I miss her like never before. I trust that God will carry her through & we will have more beautiful memories like this day. My favorite memory of us, sisters. I love you.
