Here's an idea for a totally unique layout... try using a HUGE letter as the main background, and coordinate the title accordingly. This "K" is actually a punch out from an alphabet kit that I have. K happens to be my favorite letter... I'll give you one guess why.
Anyway... I have a few prerequisites when choosing friends. If your name starts with the letter K, you get to bypass some of those. Luckily, my friend Kelsey's name starts with K, otherwise that girl would have never had a chance. *Kidding, Kels.* Kelsey notoriously picked me up at a nightclub about three years ago by complimenting my blonde curly hair. I had spent the better part of an hour to get the "I totally don't care about my hair but it looks perfect anyway" look. How could I not be friends with a girl that had such incredible taste?
I figured it was about time I did a layout dedicated to my very bestie in the whole world.
Here's some specifics on this layout. I chose very simple journaling... The pattern of the "K" is pretty busy and I wanted one elegant statement that says it all about Kelsey: "Beautiful inside and out."
For the fancy-shmancy ribbon underneath, just take a long strand of ribbon and use a glue dot roller to adhere one end. Then continue to double it back on itself putting a dab of the glue dots on each fold so the ribbon stays put. To create some dimension, don't glue the ribbon down completely, just glue a few key spots and the rest will stay nice and fluffy (like Kelsey's hair).
Next, stick on some rhinestones... these gold and silver blings happen to work perfectly for a layout featuring Miss Kelsey, whose newest nickname (courtesy of another hot blonde, Melissa) is Sparkling Cosmo.
We all know how addicted to flower embellishments I am... so here's a quadruple layered beauty for your viewing pleasure:
And now for the real fancy shmancy of the layout: the layered paper on the left.
And finally, some fun trivia about Kelsey:
1) She's a dancing machine. I'm serious. A dancing MACHINE.
2) Her laugh is more contagious than pink eye in an elementary school.
3) She will listen for hours and hours, even if the same story is repeated 13 times.
4) She's a smart cookie and a dentist, to boot.
Love ya girlie, and miss you tons!
