You are my soul sisters. We discovered this love for the craft way back as members in Scrapbooks Exchange. And we quickly became close friends. As friends and scrappers, we continue to grow separately without growing apart. We’ve become so close that one can speak fearlessly on any subject; sharing one’s deepest as well as most foolish thoughts … without inhibitions and without worry. Each win each one has is like shared joy. The triumph of one is the triumph of the other. I am so lucky to have known you – someone to lean on, someone to count on … someone to tell on. I will forever be grateful for your friendship.
Note: A huge thank you to my friend Nina Pateña for helping me out with the journaling of this layout! I could really count on you sis! You made things easy for me! Mwah!

Journaling: I can't help but smile when I think how these three became best friends. They became college buddies buddies in 1998. Soon after, RJ got married. Jeff stood as bestman and Carlo as groomsman. Then Jeff married me and got RJ and Leo as his bestmen. RJ had a daughter, Jeff and Leo became godparents. Jeff and I had Ethan and we got RJ and Leo as godparents. Next year, Carlo plans to wed, I wonder what roles Jeff and RJ will play.
You three are all tangled up in your own web of friendship ... And I hope it remains this way till you three lose your hair ... Ooops! I mean till your hair turns gray! Haha!
