Scrappin rock stars!

Now this page was fun to do! This is another example of me finding better paper at the expo once I got there. I already had the glossy black paper. I ordered it online and can't remember where from....losing my mind. Anyway, it was one of those... I know I will use it some day... purchases. The red star paper is from Rusty Pickle. I cut it down just a bit so I could put a strip of the glossy black along the outside edges. The super glittery paper is also from Rusty Pickle. I cut a strip and put it along the bottom half of the backgroud paper. It is way glittery in person! I used a die that was provided at the crop to cut the big circles for my faux records. Then, and this is the coolest part, I used my sanding block to carefully etch lines in the records. They look awesome! I don't have a totally steady hand, so the lines aren't perfect, but I thought it was cool! I traced a container from a gal at another table to make the white circles in the center and wrote the name of the song my boys were 'rockin' to on that. The black stars are Heidi Swapp chipboard pieces. I love these pictures of my boys. They had so much fun with thier air guitars. So adorable!
In other news, I am gathering some goodies for some BLOG CANDY so....stay tuned! It should be up tomorrow with my Friday Blog Challenge. Now, I am off to get the 'homeschooling' kids off the Xbox and onto some learning! Happy Day!
