Display Boards - Best Friends Forever

Here is the first project I am sharing for the stamp set Best Friends Forever that I made for the display boards.

I wasn't all that fond of this set and really had to work out of my comfort zone to make projects using it. As I've told you all before I lived in a household full of males so of course that's who I scrap. I kept trying to figure out how I was going to make a masculine page using this set and boy was it a process! But I think I pulled it off. This page is 8 1/2 x 11 and I picked the color scheme from the colors of the pictures. I stamped the main flourish image using the rock and roll technique then added the friend saying. I decorated the "tag" with circles, twine and some sponging. For the mat of the photos I used my vintage wallpaper embossing folder. Yup that piece is bigger than what you can run through the big shot! It was still really easy to do though I just put one corner of my paper into the folder and used my small hammer to emboss it and moved to each corner to get the entire surface covered. Just be careful you don't want to break your folder if you hit to hard.

In the pictures are my Son and his Best Friend Michael. They have been best friend since kindergarten. Today Michael could use all the prayers he can get as today we are burying his Mom who passed in a tragic manner last Wednesday.

So sad to lose a parent. The page is amazing. It would be hard to scrap masculine with that set!
