Best Buds

Don't ya justlLove the bright cheery colors in this layout?- I do. This is my take from this weeks sketch challenge over at Sketches in Thyme #51- I just love their weekly sketches, I try to complete them every week, if I can. This is a photo of my daughter and a very good friend of hers, who has since passed away at a very young age- so this page will mean a lot to her in her scrapbook - when I finish it and give it to her. I'm sure she will shed a few tears also- but so many great memories of their friendship she will always have.
I used Me & My Big Ideas- which they all coordinated with each other from the paper stack Several different chipboard letter, brown inks, border punch by EK Success, silk, crocheted and paper handmade flowers, brads, pearls, gemstones,scrappers floss, Stickles, corner punch olive green cardstock for leaves.
 Here are some close-ups of all the different flowers that I made. (above)The bright orange one is a silk flower which I added one of my small crocheted doileys and a flower brad to the center. The blue and green flowers are made from paper towels and sprayed with Tattered Angel Mist with pearls or gems  in the center.
And here is another handmade doiley flower large (orange one) added to 2 pink silk flowers and a glitter brad added to the center with some leaves that I cut out-inked and added stickles for some extra bling. Well thanks for coming here to see my post today and enjoy the beautiful summer weather.
