Better Scrap September Challenge #3....

Good Morning,
Today is new challenge reveal at Better Living through Scrapbooking!

“Fashion disaster challenge”
Create a layout about a fashion disaster, hair disaster, or social faux pas that happened to you.
1. Use an old school photo of yourself on your layout.
2. Use fabric or canvas on your page(s).
3. Use one larger and two smaller photo on your page.
4. Use ribbon in a fun and/or unusual way on your page.
5. Use the following as a page title, or the beginning of your journaling: “Quick, Call the Fashion Police!

“Such a fun challenge for us! I had absolutely forgotten about some of my fashion faux pas from the early 1990′s! I had so much fun rummaging through my old photos trying to find the ones to ‘showcase’ here. Finally, I chose to use ones from my very first Kindergarten class back in 1992. Check out the hair…..oh gosh!

I chose to use ribbon in a fun way on this layout. If you look at the rosettes in the upper corner, those are actually wire edged ribbon that I just spiraled around until I was happy with the size. I tucked the cut edges under and inserted a brad into the center, and attached with mini glue dots. Then, I used some striped ribbon as a corner embellishment to the photo and the journaling box. This one was just looped and attached with a brad.

I also used the ‘Quick, Call the fashion police!’ for my fun title. When my oldest niece saw this layout ( she is now the age I was in the photo), she very quickly added, ‘I am so glad hair and fashion are different now!’”

Supplies Used:

Cardstock: Discount Cardstock “Eggplant Felt 80# 12×12, Wisteria Vellum 12×12“; Papers: Graphic 45 “Hallowe’en in Wonderland,”, Embellishments: Prima alphabet and bling, American Crafts brads and rub-ons, Offray ribbon, and Making Memories journaling box.

So head on over to Better Scrap today and share you fashion fauz pas with us this week! While you are there, please visit my Better Scrap dt sisters, you'll be inspired to pull out you 80's and early 90's pix too!
