This is my 4th layout for kit 4 from
the Scrapbook Garden
I had this picture of my Mam and Dad, my Uncle Tom ( mams brother)
his wife my Auntie May and her brother Ronnie Lavery (who were
both also my dads cousins)
They were at the Miners Hall in Boldon at a dance.
The Miners hall has gone now, knocked down years ago but
at one time was somewhere for the people who lived around about to go
for dances , weddings , or parties in general.
I remember going there as a child and it was huge inside
(well it felt like it at the time, maybe it was because i was young)
For this layout I used
but the reverse side. The other side is fab and its always at this point i wish
I had 2 sheets of a particular paper, I often buy 2 sheets for that purpose.
Anyway this side won this time.
Its got all these fab music notes on it just perfect for a dance night photo.
I also used a Bazzill Just the Edge strip
inked down with Distress Ink to blend in with the paper
I used a music note punch and some black cardstock
which contrasted well.
I used Thickers for the 'Dance Night' title which
I embossed with Black Embossing powder
which gave the letters a finish which looked like patent leather
which reminded me of dance shoes.
I matted my journaling on some
Basic Grey Sweet Threads paper from last months kit
( this paper pack has gone for miles and is well worth having in your kit)
and then black card to make it match in with the rest.
I then added a rubber stamp party girl in a glass
and a small wallet cut from black card , inside the wallet i put some white card
on which i used the Tando Music Mask
from last months kit and some black soot distress ink
to colour it down.
I wanted to creat a dance card idea although I know they looked
nothing like this at all. I then added some white music notes
to it again just for detail.
Lastly I made a record , I cut a black circle and then used a 5p piece
and cut out some printed paper ( i found this bell which I thought
looked like a record label) punched a tiny hole in it so the black card
showed through and voila one record.
I enjoy making my own embellishments I think it helps me
to personalise the pages more.
With a few music notes scattered around to finish it off.
