Arlene shares a fantastic "Friendship" layout and tutorial with Typography! Isn't her son just adorable? What a great way to remember special memories.

“I took this cute picture of my son Logan with his best buddy during their field trip to the zoo. These two are inseparable! It’s too cute. The bold colors in the Typography collection were perfect for this fun 8x8 page. The postage stamps, borders and cigar labels in this collection are the perfect embellishments! I also used the coordinating chipboard and stickers.” - Arlene
