As I was working on my layout for Week 37 in Scrappin' 'n' Chattin's 52 Week Layout Challenge, I realized there are only FIFTEEN WEEKS LEFT in this year.  OMG!!!  Where did this year go?!?  I was looking for a sketch and came across this one at Scrapping Everyday Miracles:

Here's my final creations:

This is my bestie, Betty, and me at the Army and Navy Academy graduation in 2012.  We taught English there together for just over three years but didn't really get close until the last semester and then after I moved away.  Sure wish we'd realized the value of each other's friendship before I moved!

There are so many elements on here I want to showcase, so I took a TON of close-ups!

Supplies Used
Bo Bunny Weekend Market--Antique, Combo Stickers, Cut Outs, Dot, Vintage Labels
Gelly Roll white pen
Me & My Big Ideas--Mambi Stones stickers
Queen & Co.--Sunflower Yellow rhinestones
Want 2 Scrap--Self adhesive bling
We R Memory Keepers--Crafter's Staples
ZIG Memory System Writer--Navy, Pure Brown

Challenges Entered
Scrappin' 'n' Chattin' 52 Week Layout Challenge--Week 37
Scrappin' 'n' Chattin' Monthly Layout Challenge--Anything Goes #1
Scrapping Everyday Miracles--Mini Crop Challenge #2 Sketch

I hope everyone has a great weekend!  Happy scrapping!
