Louise, here again to share with you a quick project I made up with this months Mad About Scrappin's FaceBook challenge which was to use this quote
"Good Friends are like stars.
You don't always see them,
but you know that they
are always there"
On a page, card or OTP item.
The first thing that popped into my mind with this quote was to make a card for one of my dear friends and this is what I made. I love bold colour, so these papers from Glitz, were perfect for this card.
I started by using a chipboard Star (how appropriate) and traced around it for my background paper then, I covered the chipboard with another paper out of the 'Color Me Happy' range from Glitz. I also used this same wood grain paper as one of my layers and then added the heart paper on top.
I used a gorgeous star themed doiley with a circle punched out of the 'toilet people' that what I call the icons LOL. Then I added a fussy cut globe with a rhinestone to finish off the front with the words 'Good Friends'
In the centre of the card I used a strip of Washi tape down the side, these tapes is available this Friday the 19th of April on Mad About Scrappin's FaceBook 'Flog it Friday'
Here is close up of my handwriting, not perfect but remember you can not make memories personal with the computer, a little bit of your own handwriting makes all the difference.
Make sure you put this on your list of challenges for the weekend, as entries are due by the 25th April.
Ta for now

Wow.. April already.. where is this year going...
Once again Leanne at Mad About Scrappin has come up with a fun filled challenge for this month
Must say when I first saw this challenge I felt it was such a fun one to play around with. Such a great way to showcase someone that you want to celebrate having in your life.
I love using quotes for my journal as I find it often saves me from having to find the perfect words to say what I want to on my layouts.
So with the quote in mind I got creative with a photo of a very special person in my life.
I also played around with the quote a little too and used part of the quote as the main part of my title for the page. I also used stars on my layout for embellishments made from recycled card, permanent marker and texture paste. Super simple and easy.
Oh.. and who says you can use pink on a masculine layout!
Why not mix it up a little and play around with this months quote challenge from Mad About Scrappin.
