One of the nicest things about traveling is getting to spend time with old friends. We've been friends with Dan for nearly 15 years now. He and his wife, Nikki, kindly invite us to stay with them whenever we're in Denver. Dan's brother, Steve, is also a good friend and had just moved to Denver the week before we arrived. We all went out to dinner the last night before we headed home, and I just love this photo of Matt and his (our) friends.
The inspiration for the layout came from a layout I saw on the Simple Scrapper Blog by Jean Manis.
I started with some patterned paper by MME and then found some coordinating patterned paper by the same company but in different collections. Once again, there's a Flair button and some Washi tape (I see a pattern here). The tiny word sticker came from a very old Making Memories sheet that I stained with some Papertrey Tea Dye ink. The journaling card from Cosmo Cricket has also been in the stash for a long time. The American Craft Thickers are newer, arriving in a Studio Calico kit not long ago as did the tiny arrow that's part of a new Amy Tangerine collection.
