Welcome to April's Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop. This Month's theme is Scrap It In the Round.
When I started thinking about this theme I immediately thought of a Circle of Friends. I have many photos of friends I've taken over the years so it was hard to choose. Additionally, I moved 5 years go and have made new friends that I wanted to include in this layout. Here's a view of the circles I decided to use.
My first attempt had a lot of small different shaped size of circles, but the layout was much too busy for my taste. The sliver and gold elements were inspired from the Girl Scout song 'Make New Friends'. I was a Girl Scout growing up and a leader for my daughters troops. I also had another quote in my 'toolbox' from Flavia Weedn that I've wanted to use in a friend theme scrapbook. Below is a photo of both quotes I'm incorporating into the layout.
Last addition to the layout is a title "Circle of Friends" put together using the Playful Alphabet Die cuts. This is a die cut I highly recommend for every scrap booker to have in their tool kit. I also added 2 elements from of the Forever Gold Laser Cut specialty paper, but flipped them on the white side .
Below is the final page with all of the elements and photos in place. I have held numerous gatherings over the years specifically celebrating my friendships. I am forever thankful to friends that are in my life and have supported me throughout the years during good and challenging times. Many of these friends I have not been able to see during the pandemic and I miss them terribly, but we shall gather again soon.
Thank you to Sara Levin for organizing the theme of this month's Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop. I enjoyed the creativity of designing this page.
