I can't tell you how many times I saw that movie back in the 70's and how I practically wore the grooves out on that record! So here's Challenge 196:
My layout was inspired by Sketch 156 from Creative Scrappers:
and my page...
I realized when making this page that I need to start getting more photos of myself. I used this photo on another layout, but I like this picture because I look relaxed and happy, which is just what this layout is all about.
Here are some close-ups. I dug out a lot of old papers for this page. The photo on the Inspiration Board led me to tear the paper strips--trying to get a seafoam feel. I left the ends of the threads uncut--I was going for a seabreeze sort of look. You can see the threads on the left side of my page, but when I cropped the photo, the ones on the right didn't show up so you can see them in this photo. Papers I used, from top to bottom are 7 Gypsies, Hambly, Fancy Pants, another 7 Gypsies, Crate Paper, Making Memories, yet another 7 Gypsies, one more Fancy Pants, and Die Cuts With a View. The branchy thing is cut out from an old Making Memories paper that I just love. The burlap was sitting on my scrap desk from a layout I made a while back, and I thought it would add some nice texture to the layers. (Lucky thing I don't clean my scrap desk too often, lol!)
This flower is cut out of a rose ribbon trim by BoBunny (it's sort of like the Webster's Pages Bloomers), and I tucked a black rhinestone brad (Recollections) in there. I got that butterfly years ago in a Scarlet Lime kit, I think. I stapled his body to the page and put pop dots under the wings.
The little chipboard butterflies are by Dusty Attic, and I left them raw because they matched the palette. I have a huge collection of rhinestones in every color imaginable, and I found the perfect blue for this page.
The letter stickers are BasicGrey, of course. Love those things. Such a classic look. The rub-on letters ("sweet") are by Headline. I don't like where I placed them, but I was afraid of messing up the whole page once they were rubbed on, so I left them.
The design team and our featured member and guest designers made some beautiful projects, so you should head over there and take a peek. And please play along--you could win a prize from our sponsor or you might be spotted as a Gallery Fave. And you might even be asked to be a Featured Member. If you haven't tried the challenges, you should really give it a whirl--they're really, really fun!
Thank you so much for visiting my blog and reading about my page!
