This layout uses some of the August Collection's patterned papers by Marks Paper Company. As soon as I saw these papers I knew that these were the photos that I wanted to use. When I asked my friend Aerque if it was alright to post photos of him and his wife Hillary online his response was first asking me if there would be any royalties that would come his way because of it, and when I replied no, he was quick to say a payment of cookies (no nuts) would suffice. Looks like some baking is in my future!

For the stamping that I did along the green border strip along the bottom of the photos I used the new greetings stamp set by Hero Arts. Totally love how something so simple can add quite a bit of interest on your page without making it look too busy.

The journaling reads: We don't get to see our good friends Aerque and Hillary very often since we now live pretty far from one another and out of state. That's why it was a pretty special event when we drove and met one another one summer day and spent the afternoon hiking and just catching up. It was the first time that they had gotten to meet Zoey too so that was a pretty special thing in itself! It was a pretty cool feeling too I might add to see how quickly "Uncle" Aerque and Zoey bonded. It must be that same sense of playfulness that they both picked up on right away! So lucky to have friends like these in our lives!

Wonderful layout and great story! Now I'm longing for those summer days of hiking and camping and enjoying a green environment - getting tired of the grey/white/tan landscapes!
