The Road to a Friends House . . .

is never long.

I always make a few pages that my guys can add their own pictures to.  It's a really challenge as I try to keep the pages simple and a general title that they could use for a variety of pictures.  That's what I had in mind when I pulled out the board paper for my Counterfeit Kit.   I was planning on making a 8 1/2x11 and a 12x12 layout - one for each guy.  But as I was playing with the layout it turned into a two page layout.  Now I need to see of I have another piece of that background paper for my other son.

I actually started with this page and the clock face.  I decided I needed more black and that is when I added the second page and the punched corners.

I then pulled out the Quotes and looked to see if I could find something about time but found the friendship quote instead.  I added a few of the labels for him to add his own date or a little bit journaling.
Thanks for stopping by.

Pre-made pages for your guys? That is a labor of love! Plenty of room for them to add some journaling or memorabilia along with their photos.

The photo corners are the perfect touch. When I first started scrapbooking I used them all the time. I still have a ton in my stash, I need to pull them out and start using them again. Thanks for the inspiration :) Great pages!
