I need to be beside you again

For the month of September at Gingersnap Creations the theme is to Celebrate Friendship. The first week is all about "Gal Pals" challenge #GC117 and  is sponsored by Viva Las Vegas Stamps Store. They have an incredible selection, with something for every style. Come join us at Gingersnaps to laugh, learn, be inspired and to create.
I find that as I get older with my full life, I sometimes  look back and think fondly of my school days when all my friends were right besides me, all the time. Oh, how I miss that time. It was that memory that inspired this piece today. I used the Regal Woman Stamp  from Viva Las Vegas Stamps to start this collage. I stamped, inked and cut her out. She is layered on graphic 45 Renaissance Faire Collection papers from the Flying Unicorn Store. Bronze brads, punched fleur de lis accents, Bronze Stickles and sheer black ribbon accent my gal pal. The sentiment reads "I need to be beside you again."

Hope you will beside a pal this week.
sincerely, gerri
"I need to be beside you again."

  11. Ooops! Sorry for any confusion I may have caused in the process of posting my last comment here, Gerri!
    I was forgetful. PPS also has an auxiliary blog, our Laundrette, where we like to keep little bits and extras for another time.
    It's not accessible for public viewing for that very reason, sorry.
    Anyway, I really love all your details in this masterpiece. It's truly a stunner.
