Challenge 2 - Teamwork

The challenge was for both of us to make one layout as a team using red, flowers, 2 photos, friendship and doodles. My very first thought was red flowers. Photos of red flowers. But I don't have any photos of red flowers. Neither did Gail. I even took some photos today at the library of my children near red flowers. Figuring maybe I could use them.

Then after giving it much thought we decided that it should be one photo from each of us. But what of? Our children? Ourselves? Then it hit me. How about a photo of our houses and our friendship. Both Gail and I are members of Club Deco and for the month of July the theme is "The Journey Traveled" . In that kit there are images of the 50 states plus charms of the states too. I thought it would work perfectly with our layout.

The quote I found searching for long distance friendships. Gail provided the doodles and background. With a couple of passing back and forth of the layout we managed to make this beautiful page together. It was a lot of fun.

Yes! We completed Challenge 2 and not only do we go onto challenge 3 on Monday but we each earned this beautiful kit from pickleberrypop for participating.

Stay tuned till Monday.

This layout was fun to work on with you, Laura! I really enjoyed passing it back and forth with each of us adding our own spin to the page. I hope we have more challenges like this one!
