Neighbor Friends...

Hey... it's another day to enjoy life!  What's up?

I was thinking about friendship the other day... and how it evolves...  and also how you could have so many different best friends at different times in your life.  I remember we celebrated my husband's bday several years ago, and one of the things he always talked about is the feeling of having high school friends in the same room with current neighbors, and talking with the friends from work... all mixed up from different stages of your life... so weird and cool at the same time!  

Well, I have these wonderful neighbor friends.  We used to get together every other Friday and it was so fun.  But that activity also evolved you know! 

One of the couples divorced, another one moved...  some children got to an age when they are having a lot of sports activities, and so on...  different situations that set us a little bit apart from getting together.  We still see each one separately but there's been a while since we are together... all together.


This layout shows a photo of only the girls.  This day we went to the movies and the husbands stayed at home with children.  We had so much fun.  And I love this  photo.  Each one of these girls is very important to me.  Each one supports me in a different way and I learn different values from their different point of views.

And well... I want to remember how important they are for me... that's why I made this layout.

Hope you like it!


I put a cluster of buttons to create some balance and also get out from symmetry to support my imperfection... :)


The banners in the page and the title are stamped.  I also stamped some flowers in the background bottom. All are stamps from Unity.

I'm linking this layout to Scrapping Everyday Miracles and Ippity by Unity blogs' challenges.

Your LO is so beautiful.

It is sad when friends drift apart.....or at least how often you seen them. It has happened to us too and it makes me sad.

Great take Myra, it's so great to have a group like that. I know what you mean about how they evolve though. I believe there are seasons for friends, some will come back some won't but all matter. Thanks for linking up with us again this month at SEM.

Great layout and I love the stamped title... I am always afraid to use stamps because nine times out of ten I mess up when I stamp! You did a wonderful job!
