S.A.M Creative Challenge #4/ 8x8" Layout

This fortnights challenge over at Stamp a Memory is to create a page using only Black and White, with one extra colour added. You can use as many shades of that extra colour as you like but only that one. There have been some awesome entries and example pages by the design team so pop over and check them out.

This photo I have chosen is a favourite photo memory of two out of seven girlfriends that I play tennis with. We call ourselves the 'TWB' girls. That is Tennis with Benefits!. We go away once a year for a weekend to relax and have some girlie fun. This photo was taken at the Formal Night on the Pacific Dawn! Thats right, we went on a Cruise last year and had a fabulous couple of days away. 'Simply said' they are great 'Friends'.

The Stamped journaling up the left hand side reads, a friend is someone who makes it easy. Below is a close up of embellishments used.

Products used are
Card stock: Riding Hood Red, Whisper White and Basic Black
DSP: Riding Hood Red Patterns Designer Series
Inks: Basic Black and Riding Hood Red
Stamps: Simply Said and Jumbo Outline
Others: Stampin Dimensionals, Silver Hodgepodge and Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon

This layout is for my 8x8" calendar that I Scrap every year. Its really nice each month to see a favourite memory from the year before and the kids get a real kick out of seeing themselves on the months where they feature! (its a real talking point with visitors too!)

Thanks again for stopping by, until next time, have a great week xx
