Best Friends

We were driving our new convertible home about 2 months ago (it is sold now haha), and got last minute tix to the Rochester Red Wings baseball game with our church crew! We ate a TON, including artichokes french (only in Rochester, right?), hot dogs, popcorn, cotton candy and peanuts! We were walking by some booth and they offered to take our pictures in a photo booth for free (obviously sponsored by Ford)!

The inspiration for this layout came from this week's Sunday Sketch by Studio Calico:

Originally I was going to follow the sketch really closely, but I had some pre-cut scraps leftover from the Elmwood Park kit and just decided to use what I had this way.

Mainly, I wanted to make sure I didn't labor over this layout and JUST GET IT DONE! I can easily just sit at my table for hours and stare at the layout and move paper around a million times, so I seriously have to keep telling myself that mantra!

  • The papers are all from the Elmwood Park kit by Studio Calico:
  • 1. The main paper in the background is the back of the paper "Tickets Please" from the This & That collection by Echo Park Paper Co. which I may have overmisted a bit with Passport Mister Huey's mist 2. The rainbow lined paper is "Recorder" from the Childish Things collection by Fancy Pants 3. The blue grid paper is an exclusive paper from Basic Grey + Studio Calico 4. The blue banner strip is Red & White stripes by Studio Calico 5. The red numbered paper is "Giftwrap" from the Cakewalk collection by October Afternoon
  • The banner and brads are both from BasicGrey and the die cut circle is from Studio Calico, all from the Summer of '69 kit by Studio Calico
  • I used a bunch of letter stickers for the title:
  • 1. "Goofy" written in Boardwalk glitter foam thickers by American Crafts 2. "Silly" written in Eric printed chipboard letter stickers also by American Crafts 3. "Laughing" written in Olive & Cream sticky keys by October Afternoon 4. "Best Friends" written in an exclusive red alpha by BasicGrey for Studio Calico
