Sharing other challenge I did

Description: BFF, attached at the hip challenge Kristie is hosting on! It has the twists BLING, FELT & Flowers. You get an extra vote if you use the twists!
Good Times - This picture is of us in Hawaii heading to the Marine Corp Ball. It was December 2, 1999. Kim and I met when we were babies at the age of 18. Both of us married to Marines. Both of us stationed in Hawaii and lived on the same street on Kaneohe Bay. It was destined that we found each other! We built a friendship like no other. I am the godmother to her godson. I was in the room with her when he was born, he will be 10 this October. It will be 10 years this year that we have known each other. It amazes me how close we are. She now lives in her home state of PA and I live in MA. We see each other 2-3X a year and talk on the phone about 10x a day. Our daughters are only 9 days apart.
The clear button above the picture is a hidden tag by fancy pants and it reads... "If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together, There is something you must always remember, you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think. But the most important this is, even if we're apart, I'll ALWAYS be with you." -Winnie the Pooh
On the back of the quote I wrote some journaling... Kim & I going to the Marine Corp Ball. December 2, 1999. We have been friends for so many years now. I can't picture my life without her in it! We have since moved back to our hometown, but that doesn't stop us from seeing each other 2-3X a year and talking on the phone 10X a day!
I used my signo pen to write Winter in Hawaii. December 2, 1999 The Butterfly on the blue paper is by Bohemia (bought this on Clarence on the Bus Tour last year), the rub on letters are like doodling, I love them and threw out the wrapping so I have no idea who makes them. The pps are all from Fancy Pants the Sweet Spring line. One of the papers is from K&I Green Heredity, The tag is also from Fancy Pants sweet spring line. The Bazzill is cranberry, The felt is by no other than Q&CO. The bling I got at Walmart in the craft section, it's made for cell phones but I love it cause already has adhesive on it and looks dynamite on scrappy layouts. The top scalloped strip is from the Fancy pants titles and tags also sweet spring. The Last F in BFF is made by Chip Chatter Gellies by pressed Petals. The insides of the snowman bellies on every other snowman are leftover chipboard circles from Fancy pants big flourishes that I inked with a color box cats eye. Brad, ribbon and flowers unknown! Also I entered it for the April rub on challenge on
Who's next for a Challenge, can you tell I am ADDICTED TO CHALLENGES! :0)

What's so funny? said...

What? Jenn wrote in before me? Jenn are you coming to the class I'm teaching tonight? But wait, I didn't write in here to chat with my Jenny. I wrote in to say Nicole you ROCKED this challenge, girlfriend. LOVE the quote on the hidden journal and I'm using it in my Believe in yourself book for Shay. You can rock out embellishments like no other scrap diva I know. You always inspire me to go ballz to the wall.

I love this! The snowmen are super cute, they blend in so well with all the pretty colors. I didn't expect snowmen at all here but they work perfectly! Such a sweet layout about your friend!

I didn't know you married a Marine. Girlfriend, I'm learning new things about you every day.
