Sorry its been a bit since I've posted! With the 4th of July and all its been a bit crazy around here.

I haven't done any layouts, but I am currently working on a mini album for my best friend. I am using the Graphic 45 Policy Envelope album for the base. Its a bit of a challenge covering the pages, but it will be really pretty once I am all finished. Pictures to come soon!

Record Inspired Layout

I am a HUGE lover of music. I will listen to just about anything, but my favorite music is rock.

Last October I got to see the band Anberlin live when they came close to my hometown. I was so excited! They were fantasic live!

I have SO many concert pictures from the many concerts I have been too, but I have a hard time scrapbooking them since not a lot of paper goes with rock concerts.

While doing another layout using DCWV's Mod-Retro stack, I came across this really awesome page that looked like a vinyl record. Anberlin actually released their last two albums to vinyl and I own one.  My brother gave my dad a record player for his birthday, and the sound of a vinyl is so cool!

So that memory along with this paper inspired me to do an Anberlin page.

The gold paper is from the DCWV Tradewinds Cardstock stack. I saw the gold and thought "gold record."

The quote is from the song "Audrey, Start the Revoultion!"

Hope you like my page! Feel free to leave a comment …

When I was little most of what my family did was quilting and sewing. One of my grandmothers taught me how to embroider when I was about six. I loved it instantly. The same grandmother also taught me to crochet when I was eight.

I taught myself to knit when I was fourteen, and my other grandmother taught me to quilt and gave me a sewing machine when I was fifteen. I started painting when I was seventeen.

My love of scrapbooking (and the start of an obession with paper) started shortly before I turned sixteen. I had recently moved, and while reconnecting with some old friends I discovered scrapbooking. My friends loved to scrapbook and make cards, and what they did was beautiful. I fell in love very quick! I asked my friends to teach me how to scrapbook. I bought the supplies and we sat down for an af…
