F is for Friendship!

Hi my crafty friends, hope you're all well & enjoying the weekend!
Me? All plans went out the window but I'll share more about that tomorrow.
So today I have another page to share, this one for the Alpha/Dictionary challenge over at The Craft Barn. This is my 3rd page & I'm so enjoying it. The letter was F & the twist was to use a heart!
My pages all seem to have a vintage/shabby theme to them........not planned that way but it makes me happy so I think I'll probably stick to it. I chose my F to stand for Friendship.... the pic I used makes me smile so much,  the little girl cuddling her friend...........and he looks like he's so not enjoying it they grew up to be the very best of friends though.
I started with a corrugated cardboard base, a swipe of white acrylic & some distressed paper layers. some embellishments & finished with the dictionary definition......great fun to do, can't wait til I have a whole alphabet of pages!
Rightio, better go get some tea organised if we want to eat tonight! Thanks for calling......see you tomorrow!
