Friend of a Lifetime-Digi Layout

Here's a layout I was working on yesterday. Now, before you all get excited about how creative I might have been...don't! You all know how much I love Kay Miller and her layouts. Well, just recently I found out she is now designing for Sweet Shoppe Designs. They send out a newsletter each Saturday morning with new goodies that are on sale that day only. She released some new goodies that somehow landed in my shopping bag, but this kit isn't one of them. Am I confusing you yet? LOL

While poking around the site, I wandered into their forums, and more poking around led me to Kay Miller's Gallery on Sweet Shoppe. Oh the joy of seeing her fantastic layouts, not to mention her gorgeous children! I seriously need a bib. LOL Okay, so that led me to this layout. If you look at her credits, you'll notice she made the layout using a kit that wasn't hers. But she had me at that butterfly. I HAD to have that kit (Haute Spring by Zoe Pearn)-my wallet may not have thought so, but my heart did. And well, the template was already in my stash...so I shamelessly copied her layout. I did use some elements that had different colors so those choices were mine (good or bad), but essentially this is Kay Miller's layout done with a picture of my friend of a lifetime, Kelly. They do say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right?

Anyway, I had fun creating it and am happy with the choices I made. Hope you like it, too.

The sun is shining today, which is nice. I've got a bit more energy than I did yesterday. Hubby took the girls to Triceratops Mountain in Golden to see what it is all about. I think they will be hiking. He actually asked me if I wanted to go! And do what? I'm not hiking anywhere. Silly man.

Maybe I'll have time to create another layout today? We'll see...

Beautiful layout with great choices, including the subject matter. It's nice that Steve took the girls on a little jaunt, giving you a little alone time to work on layouts or just enjoy the quiet. I'll look forward to seeing your next digi layout!

Looks like you made good use of your time alone. ;) I loved the paper LOs you did recently with these pics of your friends, and now your digi LOs are great too! Which medium do you prefer working with?

BTW, I LOVE what you've done with your blog design! The only thing missing is the picture of your pretty face.

The layout is gorgeous! You have done a wonderful job.

Golden? Where is Golden? We are staying at Kicking Horse in January which is near a town called Golden (but in Canada) are they the same?
