View Full Version : Dear Friend Challenge - March 9th

03-07-2012, 08:12 AM
Your best friend, you love her (him) don't you. Why not let her know it. As we celebrate Friendship this month let's go beyond just keeping our memories and pages to ourselves, let's share them with the people they are about.

For this "Dear Friend" challenge I encourage you to write a letter to your friend telling her/him how much you appreciate their friendship, love them, enjoy having them in your life, etc.

Photos are optional.

I made this page to go with the layout I made for the TYS Scrap Challenge 9 (http://tellyourstoryeveryday.com/2012/03/scrap-challenge-9-celebrate-your-friendship/). Again, I used Someone Like You (http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Someone-Like-You.html)by the Digichick Designers.

Here’s the fine print:

You must use at least 75% Digichick Goodies on your layout to qualify for points.
When you’ve finished your layout, come back to this post and leave a comment with a link to your layout. (Feel free to use our open gallery here (http://www.thedigichick.com/gallery/) at the Digichick if you need a place to upload your layout. We even have a spot just for challenge entries (http://www.thedigichick.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=509)!)
You will earn 1 Point for participating in this challenge.
For more information about our Chickie Points System, please see this thread here (http://www.thedigichick.com/forums/showthread.php?34471-Chickie-Points-System%21).
The deadline for this challenge is March 31st.

This got my mojo flowing for the first time in a couple weeks! Who doesn't love scrapping about their best friends?

Tiffany, what a beautiful page and letter to your friend. I think she will cherish it too!

Seniorgal, I love your page and letter. What a blessing to have such a life-long friend. Love how you added the pencil just by your signature. Very pretty!

I took some poetic license with the instructions - instead of writing a letter to my friend, I scrapped a letter that a close family friend wrote when my Mom passed away. Her letter was a comfort then, and being able to scrap it was very therapeutic.

Ohhh, I love this idea. Its still perfect for the challenge. :heart:
