First Scrapbook Page EVER

I have wanted to scrapbook ever since I started stamping about 2 years ago. I have always been too nervous to start because I didn't want my first page to be a big bust.

I am glad I finally just jumped right in, and am really pleased with the way this page turned out.

I started out by stamping the swirls on the side of the 12*12 textured cardstock in versamark, and embossing them with clear powder. I put down the first part of my title phrase using stickers, then sponged black acrylic paint over the top, and removed the stickers.

I wanted to make sure there was some journaling that would jog my memory about the event, and the great time we had.

"A few months ago Deron tuned me into, and more specifically, Joel Plaskett. We discovered he woul dbe playing in Regina at the Districkt. A few friends joined us and we had an absolutely FABULOUS time. The concert was great, but it was even better that Deron stopped Joel during the break and I was able to snap this great shot!"

The clear stars were punched from some plastic packaging that came with some other embelishments I recently bought. I love that I was able to use all of the purchase, including the packaging :)

The capital J and P are grungeboard letters that were first inked in diluted Old Olive ink, then once it was dry, I rubbed Only Orange ink lightly over the top to highlight the dots.

These are the Unity stamps that I used in this layout. Scalloped Details & Dates, You Rock from School Rock Star, and three swirls that I got in my grab box, and I can't find it on the Unity website.

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to leave a comment on my post from Monday to be eligible to win your own copy of Be The Change. I will be announcing the winner on SCS during the blog hop.
