Forever Friends

As you can see I have been on a scrapbooking 'roll' and am just loving getting some of my favourite photos onto layouts  I love these photos of my DS....he is so adorable and just loves his bear 'Kirby'  They have had many an adventure together and it is a pleasure to put this together for him to look back on!

I have taken an easier road with this layout and used DP for the bears rather than stamp them - but how could I resist - they are adorable and so perfect for the theme.

This sentiment was given to me from the back of a Kaiser Catalogue by my friend Chriss - thanks Chriss, these are great....I love the sentiment - it is so true!.. I attached it to white CS and distressed the edges adding some distressing ink as well.

The title is a SU Rubon from a RAK, how easy is that!!  The tape measure is from some DP (thanks Hannah aka bubblefrog) and just seemed perfect to symbolise growth and growing - there is so much of that going on at this age!

I loved this bear and only had half of him, so time for some creative thinking!! LOL!  I stamped the script and then cut the DP and sponged it, slipping the bear in there - how could I resist him!?

I have had this stamp for sometime and only inked it up for this layout - I even had to cut the rubber - I never thought I would have stamps and not use them, but....you know how it is!!  What a perfect sentiment!!

I love this SU tag - it symbolises the adventures this boy and his bear are on - they go everywhere together - there is a deep love here!!  It touches my heart, I know he will look at this layout one day and feel all of the emotion that he felt as a child, for his 'forever friend!'
