First Scrapbooking Class - Look at what I did!!!

Yesterday I attended my very first scrapbooking class, taught by my downline, Anna. Isn't it just gorgeous. Sorry that the photo is terrible - I am USELESS at taking photos of my projects, they seem to all end up wonky?!?!?!

I'll give you a quick rundown of the products I used - I say I because I was the only one to do the 'boy' page, everyone else did the 'girl' version, which is posted on her blog, Creative Delight.

The base is a Bazzil - not sure of the colour that I ran a white Versacolor pad over. The white layer is SU Whisper White that has been torn and the edges inked with Versacolor Green Tea. The patterned paper is Basic Grey Phoebe - Pier 39 with the edges inked with Versacolor Lapislazuli. The photo is matted on SU Whisper White and Bashful Blue. I distressed the edges of the BB mat with a bone folder and then inked them with the Green Tea ink. The chipboard 'flourish' was painted in Jo-Sonja White acrylic paint and when dry I ran over it with the Green Tea & Lapislauzli inks and attached it to the page with SU 2-way glue. The outside of the 'play' element was inked with Green Tea, the inside was covered with BG paper, the edges inked with Versacolor Atlantic and Making Memories rub ons were used to spell out the word play. The whole thing was then covered with Mod-Podge. I then tied on the ribbon & the rik-rak and attached it to the page using SU 2-way glue. The letters spelling Harrison's name are Thickers by American Crafts. These are SO cool. They are self adhesive, but if you just place them lightly on the page, you can move them around for placement before giving them a final push to stick them hard to the page!

I just LOVE this page - I really has me inspired to do some more scrapbooking & it's not like I don't have a truck load of photos to use, LOL. Anna is holding this class again next week, so if you'd like to attend, check out her blog and drop her a email to let her know you're interested!
