A Rockin' one for Scrap The Boys

Hididly Ho Neighbourinos
Just popping in with a share on a LO I did last night for Scrap the Boys
This month we had to do a LO using household and personal ephemera {love that word...}

Well.... my hubby has been bugging me to do a LO about him...again.... so here is one...
I have had these concert tickets for ever... Alternative Nations Rock Concert from 1995, Chilli Peppers from 1996, Tool from 1997 and Pearl Jam from 1998... and they were all priced around $50.. these days you have to remortgage your house to go to a rock concert...Likin Park was over $100 and Metallica... well I am still paying that off...
 And before you mention it in the comments... yes I am aware I have a HUGE PHALLIC SYMBOL on my page.... but I have had this Tool sicker I bought at the concert since 1997 and never wanted to put it on a car or anything as then it would be lost forever... ahh gotta love scrapbooking!!!

So here it is....

 Close up of my ticket pocket....
 And the tickets.....
 And another of Mr Sexy and his amazing hair....
 And the Lay-ers... {said like "donkey" from Shrek...}

Ok....Anth is waiting in the bathroom for me to shave his head... Better run!!

a stitch in a looooong time

Hi everyone...
I know I know... its been a while since I have scrapped but we have all been sick AGAIN!!!
so over it so last night I stayed up until the wee hours of the night and scrapped this one for Kraft It Up which required us to use fabric and stitching on our layouts..
I must say I went a bit overboard with the criteria, but I love how this turned out.
 And some close ups.
Lots and lots of layers in this layout (oh.... so you have layers "onion boy".... (sorry but if you know Shrek you will understand...))

first, this gorgeous fabric doilie ( yep - fabric)
and my fabric covered button which I have cross stitched this floral design into (uh huh... fabric AND stitching in one...)
and of course my fave bakers twine from here stitched onto the page...
oh and can you see the cross stitched fabric square here that is all around my bottom layer?? Told you I was up all night....
 and a closey of another handmade fabric flower and another fabric doily..
and I hand crochet-ded this all by myself!! I crochet-ded it on lace.. and yep it has lots of holes but I am pretty proud of myself... and yep it took me hours.... and double yep... crochet-ded is the action of crocheting

 more fabric loveliness

 and even  more
and so now I am going to take my poor little fingers up to bed...

thanks for leaving comments too on the previous LO big fella did.. he was so rapt to see people responding to his post... amazed actually. You made one little boy happy .Thanks for the support, it means alot!!
