Childhood Friends

It's been a while since I've used one of Shimelle's Starting Points as the basis for a layout, so I decided to try the new one posted this week. I almost always choose my photos first, then pull papers for my layouts, which is what I've typically done even when using a Starting Point. However, this time I simply pulled out  my green papers (because it looked like the tallest stack!) and chose papers to create this background. [Not sure why the background insists on looking blue in the photos!]

Then I thumbed through my storage binders to find a photo and ended up with this completed layout.

Journaling reads: During Jeff's visit to Texas, we spent Sunday afternoon at Buchanan's Antiques and Collectibles Market in Lewisville. Robbie and Jeff enjoyed hunting for toys together (and goofing off a little, too).

I thought this was one of the more interesting starting points, and you've done an excellent job with it!

Great layout! I haven't use many of Shimelle's starting points but I should because yours looks wonderful.

I took note of Shimelle's starting point this time around too. I hope I can come up with a page half as interesting as that one.
