 First of all, let me say WELCOME to this next to the last stop on my Bestie's Birthday Hop. To give you a little history, we started crafting together a year or so ago through our mutual friend, Julie. I am a scrapbooker and Julie is a stamper/card-maker. It was a perfect marriage of creative juices, because it inspired our friend Susie to take the leap. Fast forward a year, and it is Susan that is doing the inspiring in us with her creativity, kind-heart, loyal friendship, parental advice and weathering of teenage-storms, and for introducing me to the Blogisphere! 

My project is a scrapbook page (as this is my preferred medium) dedicated to the special friendship I share with her. SO.... (I mentioned her loyalty and devotion as a true blue friend) while recovering from major boo-boos, she pitched in to help make our church's Vacation Bible School a success despite being short-staffed. With a smile on her face and a song in her heart, she diligently worked each day to make it a success. My boys both attended while I had to go to work, so the photos are of she and I one early VBS morning. She is donning her Panda ears (the VBS mascot) and smiling (as this is her way) despite the chaos and "Sheer Panda-monium! (Inside Joke since VBS was Panda-mania this year)...

I used Die Cuts with a View Mod-Retro Stack Papers (Glamorous PP) and plain card stock for the black and white. Add Me and My Big Idea "Soft Spoken" flower stickers, torn paper from a scrap book magazine ad, a Uni-ball Signo white pen and black fine point sharpie for the doodles, and VOILA!

Thanks for stopping by! Happy hopping and a very special HAPPY BIRTHDAY to one of the greatest friends a gal could ask for- SUSAN!!!! I love you girlie! Feliz Cumpleanos!
