Almost forgot....

.....to post my DT Layout for Sketches! {by tamara}. Just one more sketch week left and Tamara is taking a well-deserved summer off!

I used the gorgeous Basic Grey, Lime Rickey papers and embellishments! I just love these colors!The top photo is from an advertisement online...My dear friend Shelly and I always kid about how we'll still be friends when we're in our 80's...going out to lunch wearing our support stockings and babushkas!!!!!

Shelly and I have been friends for at least 10 years! We have such a special bond...kindred spirits.

Last year Shelly fought the toughest battle of her life...actually she fought FOR her life, breast cancer. Without hesitation, I fought that battle along side her and WE WON! She is an amazing lady...beautiful(especially when she was bald!), strong, stubborn, compassionate, smart, a smart-ass, funny, gutsy, loving and CANCER-FREE! I wouldn't have her any other way! I am blessed to have her in my life and thank God everyday that she is! Love ya Shelly!

Thanks for popping in and checking out all my "bolognie"!
