She Is More Like a Sister (Little Yellow Bicycle Just Because)


We all probably can think of at least one friend we can count on no matter what. It usually stems from a friendship of long-standing and for me it's also about trust. This is what my dear friend, Francine, is to me. We've known each other for 28 years (I can't believe it!) and I can count on her for anything. She has always been there for me, through the good times and the bad. Four years ago, she showed up at my friend's funeral (even though she didn't know my friend except from my talking about her) to help me through it. She came for a surprise visit when we first moved to NY. Imagine my shock and surprise when I opened the front door and there she was! She has been there through both of my parents' deaths and countless other times. She is a rock and is more like a sister to me...

To celebrate this friendship, I used Little Yellow Bicycle's brand new Just Because collection. Isn't it pretty? The colors are amazing (although the lighter blues are a bit off because we have zero light today)! I layered some Clear Cuts to add to the scene already printed on the background paper (mason jar, "love", "let's chat" banner, and polka dot cloud). I also mixed and matched some chipboard hearts and frames, pop dotting them for added dimension.

Here are some detail shots:
