Music Star

It was National Scrapbooking Day in the US yesterday so I decided to do something I have been wanting to do for ages - I made a Scrapbook Layout.

My layout is about my youngest son, Laurence, he certainly is a 'Music Star' - he plays, sings and records music, he has two recordings on YouTube.

He knows everything about Pop Music - you can ask him who recorded a song, the date it was released, what position it got to in the charts, anything you want to know and he will tell you and he can go back to the 1970's.

I have used traditional methods to create my layout, I love CD crafting and digital images and papers but I still like to print them out and adhere them, I find this the most enjoyable part of crafting. Even though postage costs are becoming ridiculous I still like to feel the weight and dimension of a traditionally made project.

I really enjoyed making this layout and I think it might be the first of many.

I would like to enter my layout into the following challenges:

Red Carpet Studio Challenge 35 - Use black as a prominent colour
Joanna Sheen Challenge - Music & Lyrics
Divas by Design - Add a Number
The Paper Shelter - Music Maestro
4 Crafty Chicks Challenge 140 - Stars
Moving Along with the Times Challenge - One for the Guys
Allsorts Challenge Week 205 - Add some Sparkle (glitter stars)
As You Like It Challenge 1 - Favourite Die and/or Punch (X-cut Star die - so useful for boys/children's cards but can also be used for females)

Thank you for calling today, I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend, the weather has been beautiful here today - long may it last!

This is a fab layout Pauline and love the photos. Your son sounds like Russ (my husband) he knows all there is to know about music, though he doesn't sing - that is my joy. You will have to send the link so that we can listen to him on You tube.
Hugs Sharon. x

It's a great way to showcase photos - much better to use them on layouts than to have them in a drawer or on the computer. I think this design is really nice - well done!

A lovely layout and page Pauline. I'm with you not the traditional thing. It's great to have a play in CAP but I always feel it's a bit of a cheat if I don't layer it all up in the conventional way.
