My BFF blog hop...

I never had no one
I could count on
I've been let down so many times
I was tired of hurtin
'So tired of searchin
''Til you walked into my life
It was a feelin'
I'd never known
And for the first time I didn't feel alone
My Best Friend

Granted Tim McGraw is singng of a lover as a best friend but there are so many ways to have a best friend!!! Today we are using Scrapping with Lisa's Designs whether it be Best Buds , Best Friends , or BFF. We all have that special someone that we can share our most intimate secrets, fears, and accomplishments!

Today, Lisa's Design Team is going to be sharing their BFF file with you and why they chose that particular file. Hope you sit back and enjoy our BFF with your BFF.

Lisa has a fabulous Design Team to share with you today and please don't forget to stop at the Design Team blog, page to leave a comment as Lisa is offering two (2) free files to a lucky winner that comments on the Design Team page and becomes a follower!!!!!

 I chose to use the Best Friends file. I chose this because for the past 17 years my best friend has been a male. :O) 

My background paper is orange. The second paper is brown. The photos are matted on card stock that is orange,white,blue and punched at the top. There's a orange ribbon across the bottom and on top of that is tan/black ribbon. I took a ink pen and went around the photos and mats and also in the punch work. I made my paper piecing to match me and my Best friend as much as I possibly could. I added a few black stars and clear gems but not to many.

Here is an older LO I did of me and my best friend a few years back.

 I would love to see what you make with Lisa's friends files.
