A Star was Born Layout

Wednesday, February 9, 2011
I have a dirty little secret that I'd like to admit to all of you. I'm not sure if I should...but I think after admitting this..I hope to become a better scrapbooker. Ok...are you ready...???

I just started an album for my children. Seriously...I just started making pages about the days they were born. My son is 4 and my daughter is 2.  I'm so late and behind. Will I ever get this album done..? I hope so. A few days ago, I decided to take a challenge to finish 100 LOs by the end of the year. That's a lot!!!
I'm a crafter, meaning I do other crafty things, not just scrapbooking...So, I'm crossing my fingers that I will be able to make 100 layouts.

Anyway, today I'm going to share a layout that I just finished. It's about the day my son was born.
I called this layout "A Star Was Born". Of course, he's a star in our family :D
I used a sketch from Sketchy Thursday Challenge blog.

A little bit about this artwork -- The paper collection I used is from Close To My Heart called You Rock {Too bad it's already expired  retired}. I used a multi-colored emboss technique on the big star image and added Stardust Stickles. The Chipboard letters are from Making Memories and I dabbed multi-color inks, also added stickles. Letter stickers are Tiny Type from Cosmo Cricket.  Laces are from Hobby Lobby. And the blings -- the circle one is from Close To My Heart, and the big ones are from Michaels' dollar bin.

Well...I have 99 more layouts to go. Wish me luck :D
I hope to see you all soon. Be sure to come back often...and check out more layouts.
Take Care.
