"Simply the Best": Webster's Pages 'Best Friends'~!!

**For my October giveaway, please go HERE**

Good morning, my dear friends! And Happy Monday~!! I know, I know- you're sayin' "MONDAY? HAPPY?!" Yes, I understand that Monday is generally the most loathed day of the week- but I've got something to cheer you up, okay? Because today I get to share with you my very first project using the GORGEOUS "Best Friends" mid-release collection from Webster's Pages!! This range is just REFRESHING~!! As I look outside at the now bare trees and gray skies, cold winds and snow flurries- let me tell you, I NEED something as fresh and fun as "Best Friends" :)~!

And how could I NOT dedicate my very first project to my own best friend AND sister, Kelly?! Many of you know her through her talents as a scrapper, but only I REALLY know her, as a best friend should! We've been through EVERYTHING together- both good and bad. We literally call each other probably a minimum of 20 times a day- even if it's just to say "Hey, I had to tell you before I forget..." and then hang up thirty seconds later. Between handling kids and daily life, we're on and off the phone pretty regularly, haha! 

The photo I used in my project is an older one- which is why it's a bit blurry. It's from my 23rd birthday (which will be 6 years ago next month!) and we were just getting ready to go out...

"Simply the Best"

One of the things I really love about Webster's Pages is when I set about creating a layout, I never really know what I'm going to end up with. I always start with some fussy cutting and I allow them to dictate my design. With this particular layout, I started with this sheet of paper:

I knew I wanted this beautiful willow tree with the long, beautiful branches and falling hearts as the main element on my layout. Then the white bracket section of the paper was also cut out to be used on this page as well. (The dog and child were cut out and set aside for a future project). 


Lots of layers on either side, using a combination of punched paper strips and some of the gorgeous new "Best Friends" trims:

Aren't these polaroid frames just adorable?! They're a trend we're continuing to see used and I think they are just way too cute! Paired with a digital frame added to my photo and topped with a fabulous window piece from Scrap FX, It was time to top off the entire works with the beautiful resin heart piece!


Who doesn't adore the Webster's Pages cameos? And Brandin really has outdone herself with these- I think they're the most beautiful yet!

Such a beautiful page!! So wonderful that you have such a close relationship. I have a lovely sistier too. She doesn't scrap, and we don't talk 20 times a day, but she's a great sis!! ~ Blessings, Tracey
