Lauout #64 - Smitten!

This was a fun layout for me to do! I challenged myself to make it as quickly as possible, and I finished it in an evening. Kind of hard to say exactly how long it took because I kept getting interrupted! I used a sketch from Creative Scrappers (#119) and a prompt out of my Scrapbook Play book: #15 - scrapbook about an obsession. Just a note here, this is an old obsession! My new obsession is scrapbooking, but before I ever discovered this wonderful hobby, I used to loooooove going to concerts and drooling over rock stars! The new generation can have their vampires and werewolves, but I'll take a rock star any day (but not the old ones, hee hee!) Here you can just barely see Edwin and David Usher from Moist. I pulled colours from their shirts, and then scoured my stash for old and new stickers to coordinate with the "smitten" theme. Some machine stitching and journaling strips, and there you have it, another embarassing layout for my kids to laugh over one day when I'm old and grey!

Supplies (all CTMH): Tulip and White Daisy cardstock, patterned paper from You Rock Level 2 paper pack, Exclusive Inks marker in Tulip

Other: Stickers from Jolee's Boutique, Creative Memories, Top Line Creations, and Little Yellow Bicycle

  1. lol They will probably ask "Mum what is rock n' roll"? with all this other crappy music around, but this is gorgeous, I think this is an amazing page and documenting this great addiction wow, you have really become tame hey, I never got to go to many rock concerts, you know say John Cougar and Bruce Springsteen and Jagger when they came out in the early 80's but not much more, this scrapbook sounds like it is giving you lots of inspiring ideas for making layouts, sounds great, what is the name of it, and using the Creative Scrapper sketches is a great idea to get some challenges done to boot.
