a special kind of friendship

Hello - half way during school holidays - it's been fun and busy - as always, it's going by too fast.  I've created this LO for the Once Upon a .... Sketch challenge for July - with the theme of FRIEND.
Here is the fabulous sketch:
 And here is my LO:
 A photo of my beautiful niece with their family puppy dog - what a great shot that was taken by her mum!!
I've used lots of different products in this LO - it really is fun to jumble them all up every now and then!!
There's papers from October Afternoon, American Crafts, Hambly and Studio Calico.
Here are some close-up's of the details:
 .. some of the cute chipboard embellishments from the Dear Lizzy collection ... a crochet heart from my stash ... typewriter journalling ...  Martha Stewart doily punch ...
 ... paper heart bunting using my heart punch - it's actually an 'old' Carl punch and I totally love it ...
 ... shipping tag with some background stamping ... more of the chipboard accents (love the mason jar theme) ...
... little letters from the same Dear Lizzy collection ... and a cute mint green doily peeking out ...

Loved working with this sketch and challenge theme!
Hope to be back soon with more inspiration from my DT Kit for Handmade by Suzanne.

Thanks for coming by ♥♥
