A scrapbook page?!

Don't faint, but yes I did make a scrapbook page and... gasp... there is no stamping on it! Are you all right? The fall from your chair didn't hurt too much did it? :)

This is my niece Stephanie and she is attempting to ignore me and my camera by playing a game on her Nintendo DS. Guess what? It didn't work! I not only took the picture but then made a complete pest of myself! LOL!

Details: the page is 12" x 12" and the base is a piece of Sage Shadow textured cardstock that I sponged/smeared a bit of Whisper White craft ink and heat set. I then cut a stripe of black/white dotted designer paper on which I added a scalloped edge to the bottom. Would you believe that this paper is actually from a Halloween line by My Mind's Eye? It is and it just worked perfectly for this very non-ghoulish page. :)

I cut a 11" strip of Not Quite Navy cardstock and paper pierced the bottom edge before adhering to the page. Around these layers I knotted a piece of black satin ribbon from PaperTrey Ink. I matted the picture of Stephanie on Basic Black cardstock before adhering to the page and added a title using some glittery black chipboard letter Thickers by American Crafts. The journaling was done with a Dymo label maker.

To accent the page I die cut some swirls using the Doodle Parts by Spellbinders. I then randomly inked the die cuts with VersaMark, coated with Iridescent Ice embossing powder and heat set. I also sponged some Not Quite Navy on the edges for a more distressed appearance. I adhered my doodle parts to the page and finished by sewing a Prima flower and button to the corner of the picture with linen thread.

What do you think? Is it worthy of being added to a scrapbook album? Hee... I think I may need to hide this page from my mom! :)
