Remember this....and an imaginary friend!

Hi all....

I wanted to share today a layout I made with the most YUMMY Artful Delight March kit! Seriously IN LOVE with this month's kit! 

I made this layout about LITTLE ME and other things I wanted to remember from my childhood! 

I started with this sheet from My Mind's Eye that comes in this month's kit! 

I loved all the 'frames' in this sheet and decided to cut out most of the frames, then to give it a vintage feel I painted some ink to the inside of each frame... 




And yes, I know --- Brookie is the spitting image of me ;) 






And don't forget...Artful Delight is having a DT call right now!! Seriously...try OUT for this TEAM!! Leeanne's kits are AMAZING!!!


And I also wanted to share a Get Well card I made for my friend Krista who recently broke her ankle and had surgery to have pins put in! OW!!

Anyhoo... I was blog surfing one day and Laurel had a card made about imaginary friends... and it totally inspired this card!!!

Four years ago, Krista and I "met" on SIStv (an online scrappy community that is now closed....)...anyhoo... I found that she lived here and she started to invite me to her monthly crop at her house.... well, when her hubby first found out about me... he was weirded out about Krista having an "imaginary" (online) friend come to the house!! LOL!!! And so ever since then, Krista has called me her "Imaginary" friend!! LOL!!!

I made this using Nikki Sivils My Lil' Monster collection!

The inside sentiment.... I used a SRM sticker

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
