I had an absolutely wonderful group of friends during college. Most of them I made during the first quarter of my first year at Ohio University (1985/86) and remained close to throughout our four years. These guys made my college experience so much more fun (they were a funny bunch) and bearable (you know even the best college years have low points), and I love each of them. Just about every one of my college memories includes one or more of these sweet, smart, loyal friends.

I followed the sketch below for my layout and will be entering it into the Page Drafts “Love is everywhere 2014 Valentines release” sketch challenge. The papers are mainly from Jillibean Soup’s “Grandma’s Lima Bean Soup” collection. I designed the title and cut that and the swirls on my Cameo. And I thought the vintage buttons were a nice touch with the quote about antiques.
