Best Buds

Here's my last layout for Lasting Impression for the month of July. I got so excited with the new Scenic Route Garden Grove collection that I got to make two layouts from my DT kit. Atlast, there was enough white space on this layout! I tried to keep this simple - clustering all my paper and embellishments in the middle. But I also challenged myself to mix and match papers of different themes and seasons. The papers are: Christmas themed from Sassafras Lass, school themed from Scenic Route, beach/summer from Rouge de Garance, and Valentine from Fancy Pants! The SR Garden Grove proved its' versatility - I love how this turned out!

Best Buds

This is Ethan's bestfriend, Sancho. Sadly, Sancho was transferred to another section when they moved to Junior Kindergarten. Here's the whole journaling of my layout:

You met Sancho on your first day of school. You instantly "clicked" together. You danced and sang side by side. You ate together during recess time and would share your snacks with each other. Tita Sab, Sancho's mom, told me that you were the only one that Sancho remembers of all his classmates.

But as another schoolyear started, you moved to Junior Kinder without Sancho as your classmate. You were looking for him and when I told you that he's at the other class, you became sad. I'm sad too, you know, because I also like Sancho as your friend. I've seen you play togther - you were both rough and wild! You would shout and yell while playing but - there weren't any fighting, no issues of not sharing. You get along very well. Sancho was also a good influence. You would imitate what he does and that made me feel relieved.

I told Sancho how much you miss him when I recently saw him in school. He said he wants to bring you to his house so you can play! That was sweet!

I hope that even though you're no longer classmates, you will remain to be best buds! l

Love, mommy (journaling 07/11/09)
