Best Buds

Here's a LO featuring my husband and one of his bestfriend's, Josh (Josh & Josh).

There's a pullout card behind the photo (see below). Inside I did some journaling about how they first met and some of his memories. I also put in some OLD pics of their old band. I wanted to be sure to include them, but I knew my husband didn't want them in plain view, so I hid them. LOL. There is also a small little envelope in the top right corner. Inside of that I included a picture of our kids playing together. :)

I used a technique on the photo mat that I haven't used since. I'm not exactly sure of the term, but basically I used a sponge to wet the outer edges and slowly distressed it and rolled it to give it a sort of aged/antiqued look. This works particularly well when the cardstock you are using has a white core.

You've been such a busy little bee! I love the doodles around the edge of the paper. And those recipe cards are adorable. Can't wait to see what you do with the pretty new flowers.
