Hooking up with Texture Tuesday - Love eDition

This weeks theme is "Love" and to use any of Kim's fabulous textures at least once.  I had the perfect photo I wanted to use, but didn't ask the parents permission in time (since it's of their little boys).  I don't like putting anyone's kids on the internet without their permission...that's just me.

The photo I chose shows "love" to me.  I'll fill you in on it a bit.  This picture is of me and a very, very dear friend of mine.  We met back in Junior High and immediately were friends.  She has the most contagious smile then and still...we were inseparable.  Ok, making a long story short...she got married very young and had children.  Me, I went on living the "typical" single life (no children) and working towards a career.  Sadly, our separate lives took us in different directions along with other things beyond our control.  BUT, she was never ever far from my heart.  Years went by about 20 and I was back home (Texas) visiting and we found each other.  Unfortunately, we didn't stay in touch (not sure why)...anyway with the great internet and Facebook, yes, we found one another again. 


Nancy came out to Las Vegas for a wedding (not hers...lol) and we met up.  It was like we've never really been a part.  We hugged one another so tightly, I didn't want to let her go...not again.  We had a fabulous day hanging out and catching up.  We've kept in touch ever since and have made a promise to never lose contact.  You see, she's one of the best people I know and one of the strongest ladies I know.  I'm so bless to have her in my life, but even more blessed to call her my friend.  I love you Nancy!  Best Friends Forever.

Kim's texture I used was Misty Love Letter blending mode Normal 100% erased over us, I wanted to keep as much of that texture as possible.  I added another layer blending mode Burn not sure what opacity.  Then I used Shadow House Creations Black Box Mask - 8 blending mode Overlay.
