I am so happy that you liked my little sneak. I will post more glimpses when I can **wink**
Here's nother challenge to consider...
This is the Bi-monthly layout sketch for May designed by Julia Stainton for CHF. HERE is where you can find more information and find out how to play along if you would like to...and here is my take on the sketch:
This is a dear friend of mine who got married in February. It was in Florida, so I couldn't make it, which made me sad. We met when we were 5 on the beaches of New Jersey. They are from Rhose Island and of course we were from NY...what a fun way to bring 2 life long family friends together. We introduced our parents and we vacationed together for many years. I haven't seen her in over 10 years. :(

Ideas to note:
1. I made a custom photo corner by cutting a square in a diagonal and then cut a smaller triangle from the center.
2. I chose to stamp a pattern onto vellum for a softer touch.
3. This is my friend's photo (I couldn't make it to her wedding), so I didn't feel that I could journal on this layout. I felt that a sweet sentiment would work just fine.
*Tip stamp on the paper first and then cut it out*
*FF The collection of Beer mats is called Tagestology* (are they referring to coasters...I don't get it)
