You Are My BFF

Happy Thursday everyone!!!   Today is a special day for me, my birthday!  I'll spare you the details of what year I am celebrating.  Let's just say it's my 29th!!!  I've got a layout to share with you today that I made for my friend Julina using the August kit from Artful Delight and a delightful sketch designed by Diana  for Scrapfit's Workout #74.

and here is Diana's fun sketch:
This was a hard one for me . . . leaving all of that whitespace.  Normally I would be filling it with papers and embellishments, but once I got going on the layout, I embraced it and love how it turned out!  

Here are a few closeups:



Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful layout....I'm loving the white space!! KWYM about it being difficult to do.....esp if you are used to filling the entire page! I love the colors you chose, and all of the little elements and embellies work perfectly to frame your pics!! Awesome work!! Enjoy your day!!!
