Friendship Album

One of my co-workers is moving away in about a month to Pennsylvania with her family. I will miss her funny style and sense of humor, but she has extended family and opportunity in the area. She commissioned me to make an album for a friend of hers who she will miss. This is the album I made:
This co-worker and her friend do regular walking together and have been friends for 5+ years. They initially met and did the Seattle to Portland bike ride together. She let me know a few other things about their friendship, they like blues and greens, outdoor walks and adventures. Have been silly, happy and sad together. This first page is about their initial meeting and 212 mile bike ride together.
This next page shows a map of the lake they walk around and talks about how friendship blooms and grows and changes through time.

The next pages are some of the funny moments they have shared and have some fun outdoor
elements. They are the perfect pair. :)
This co-worker told me they often saw the same two ducks walking together over the years, one white and one black. This page is about loving things and how, "life is sweeter when shared with friends."
The final page is the thank you page. I have used more fun outdoor elements and stamped, Thank you for being my friend." The space is available for this co-worker to write what she would like to for her friend.
Supplies used are mainly Stampin' Up!, however, there are other elements as well. Some stamps from Hero Arts. Stickers and chipboard from K & Company and other. Thanks for stopping by!
