CKC Challenge #1 - Inspired by Jewelry

Do you have this month's kit assembled yet?  My "Denim and Chambray Soiree" is ready, but I have a confession to make.  I used last month's kit, "Spa Retreat" for October's Challenge #1.  GASP!  You see last month's kit was full of all this great turquoise and since I wanted to feature my extra special gift from my bestie Tara, I just HAD to.  I'm sure you'll forgive me, right?

As soon as Tara handed me the classic turquoise box with the satin white ribbon for my birthday I knew where it came from.  Yes, that's right.  Tiffany & Co.  It wasn't even one of those milestone birthdays.  That was last year and she treated me to a scrap weekend getaway.  I'm not sure why she spoils me so much because our friendship is gift enough.

So, this month's layout is inspired by that classic turquoise jewelry box with the white satin ribbon.  Take a look:

I even used the white satin ribbon from the box on my layout. 

I am blessed.  And not because she bought me a beautiful necklace from a posh jewelry store, but because she is one of the most giving, loving, positive, hardworking, dedicated, and caring people I know.  
Love you, Tara.  You are a classic friend.

Thanks for stopping by!
