Photobooth: you rock!

So I recently discovered a new app for my iphone called 'Photobooth'. It is awesome. It produces pics like those you get in a photobooth in the mall. I just love it. It takes 4 quick pics and you never really know what you are going to get. You can email them to yourself when you are done or send them to your photostream in your iphone camera. Once I emailed them to myself, I used photoshop to put four of the strips on a blank 5 by 7 canvas and then printed it as a 5 by 7 pic. It worked out quite well.

This layout uses a photo strip I printed to tell the story of my friendship with Daniela, my coworker and bff from camp. We weren't always so fond of one another so our story of friendship is a funny one. I'm not usually much of journaler but this story was one that needed to be told.


Details about the layout:I love a little grey with some green polka dots and light pink accents. It's a lovely combination. I used the sticker 'You & Me' which is probably supposed to be for a wedding layout but it seemed fitting for the story and the little point at the top points at US which is just too cute. I heat embossed the Maya Road chipboard clouds with white Zing to make them stand out and used the new Studio Calico stamps for the pink polka dot cloud in the top right hand corner. I LOVE me some polka dots! Like I said above, the story is really the focus here even though I'm not one to usually journal this much but I like how it turned out.



Sometimes you meet your best friends in the most unlikely of places and situations. All I've got to say is don't judge a book by it's cover. First impressions are not always accurate. You never know when you'll meet your next soulmate.

I love you D.



  1. Great journaling! This made me think of my dog lol. I had always small girl dogs and then my husband brought home this male golden retriever :(. I tried to just ignore him but then my husband was out of town for a month and I had to take care of him. Now he is my best friend and my husband always talks about how I stole his dog lol.

  2. Beautiful layout - both the design and story! Love the grey! :)
