My Fabulous Friends

The definition of Friend in the dictionary says - A person whom one knows, likes, and trusts. But Friends are more than that - they are our integral part of our lives, being there when needed without judgment without questions. A Friend is one with whom you can be yourself.

I guess I was becoming a bit emotional. This is my first post of August. Cannot believe it is August already. Time is flowing very quickly. I had knee surgery done last Thursday and had not scrapped or stamped for a while. So, it was nice to be crafting again. And this friendship themed page from Scrap and Stamp was the thing that needed to cheer me up. My friends have been so helpful through all this. So, I ended up doing two pages for this challenge. I would have done another page for my SCS Friends, but since did not have a photos, might have to do something else for them :)

Here is my first page - this is of my very close friends :) BALM Group - Banu, Anjali, Leena and Maneesha. These are the photos from Maneesha's birthday a few years ago. :) Thanks girl for putting up with me and being there for me.



I used sketch #20 from 52 sketches 52 weeks for this page. Here is that sketch,



Here is my 2nd page - This if of my scrapbooking friends who help me through so many things and share the same interests and nature. Thanks for being there and listening to my griping and all :)



I used Sketch # 4 from 52 sketches 52 weeks for this page. Here is that sketch,



Supplies:
Stamp - PTI Friends 'Till The End
Paper - Basic Grey Blitzen Collection, GASC DP, Generic Kraft, PTI Soft Stone CS
Ink - PTI Summer Sunrise, Memento Black
Other - Marvy Circle Punch, Cricut Home Decor Cartridge, Prima Flowers, PTI Vintage Buttons, Making Memories Button Brads, Metal Nail Heads from GKD
