123 October Challenge

This month I have decided to give the 123 challenge a go, as it was too pretty not to. For October the challenge was to use the following items in a layout:
I love swirls, and the word forever had so many opportunities, the apricot was very nice to work with, who wouldn't give this challenge a go.
I decided to scrap a photo of my daughter Melanie, and a friend Sherrilee, who she has now known for 23 years, since Melanie was a 1 year old. They have always enjoyed each others company, despite
Sherrilee being a bit older.
I created the background using a kaisercraft stencil, ink and then embossed that. I have added a couple of other colours to this layout as accents, but predominantly used the apricot. I have then added some lovely embellishments from Kaisercraft, D-lish Scraps, Heidi Swapp, A lil Somethin, Project Life and Prima - some old things, some new things. I added a wooden swirl to my cluster, and used the work Forever 3 times - in journaling, title, and embellishment. 
Thanks for looking at my layout.
Forever Friends
