Friends Forever

Jimjams - Layout detail - vellum pocket for journalling
Welcome to the final post of the March CKCB Members' Blog Hop; if you didn't reach me from  Kelly then you might want to start at the beginning with Lisa (the full hop list is here)

This month we had a choice of three challenges to use for the hop (#1 Blank Canvas Challenge , #2 Gift Wrap Challenge, #3 Friends Inspired Challenge).

I've already had a go with the blank canvas challenge so I went with the 3rd challenge, using my August Counterfeit Kit to scrap a photograph of a dearly departed friend, lost suddenly to the big C last month.  It was taken on my birthday last year while we were all still in blissful ignorance.

Jimjams - Layout - Trattoria Pacciano

We four have had several happy times together over many, many years and the memory of this day is a good one. 

Thanks for hopping around with the CKCB Members this month - why not join in yourself in September - EVERYone is welcome!
