I wanted to scrap another pic from some old photos taken by a friend. This time I picked a favorite photo of me and Kieran...he is my little Rock Star, that's for sure! Nothing like that mother/son bond...I'm his biggest fan! He was such a mamma's boy and ALWAYS sitting on my lap or clung to my leg :) I love this pic it brings back sweet memories of him when he was little...now he is almost as tall as me....where does the time go?!

I started out by first picking my papers and these MME Follow Your Heart Be Amazing 12X12 papers spoke to me.  As I was flipping through them one sheet caught my eye. It had the phrase "Listen to Your Soul". Well, that sounded like some good advise (he, he, he, sorry, I couldn't resist)...it started the wheels turning and helped to establish the direction for the page. I pulled out the NEW Laina Lamb Document it - Rock On and NEW Accent It - Rock and Roll Die-namics to make this page for and about my little Rock Star with some ROCKIN' words of wisdom!

Since this is a "boy" page I added this layered star embellishment using the NEW Accent It - Rock and Roll Die-namics and the Star STAX Die-namics, instead of the flower that the sketch calls for. I also used the Uppercase and Lowercase High Rise Alphabet Die-namics to add in Kieran's name and cut it out from black corrugated cardboard. I matted the photo on Whip Cream Heavyweight Card Stock and popped it up from the page on foam squares.

On one small strip of the pattern paper there is a double row of small burnt orange stars and diagonal aqua stripes. I wanted to replicate this pattern in other places on the page to make things more cohesive. So, I turned to my wonderful MFT stamps for some help. I used the small stars stamp from the NEW LLD Document It - Rock On Stamp set and the diagonal stripes stamp from the NEW Lollipop Additions - Birthday Stamp set and stamped with the beautiful NEW Blu Raspberry Premium Dye Ink. Can you see it? The double row of tiny stars is the pattern paper but the row of  5 stars is the stamp from the Rock On Stamp set....isn't that cool?! I'm thrilled to bits with how this turned out...to achieve the distressed/imperfect look, I stamped off on scratch paper and then stamped directly on the page in strategic places.

I also stamped several sentiments from the NEW LLD Document It - Rock On Stamp set with Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink on Whip Cream Heavyweight Card Stock cut with Fishtail Flags and Fishtail Layers STAX Die-namics. I stamped the cute little iPod controls on Whip Cream Heavyweight Card Stock cut with the circle die-namics from the Accent It - labels and Tabs Die-namics with NEW Blu Raspberry Premium Dye Ink and popped it up by the LIVE LOUD sentiment.

I also stamped sentiments from the LLD Document It - Rock On Stamp set and cut them with the Circle STAX Die-namics to make tags. I layered them with a glittery silver circle, punched a hole with my Crop-A-Dile and tied it with black twine. I popped up the tag over a Chocolate cork heart cut with the Heart STAX Die-namics and sprinkled a few tiny silvery glittery stars and chocolate cork stars with black gems.

I also used the Accent it - Labels and Tabs and stamped with the LLD Document It - Right This Way Stamp set with the NEW Blu Raspberry Premium Dye Ink. I also got a little daring on this page and decided to add in some ink splatters and splotches. I cracked open my new Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Black Velvet and spritzed some on my non-stick craft sheet and then dipped a paint brush in it and tapped the brush in specific spots this afforded me a lot more control over the splatter. I LOVE how this looks and the little splotches have a slight shine to them IRL! LOVE it!

I adore this sentiment from the LLD Journal It - For the Record Stamp set. I stamped it on Whip Cream Heavyweight Card Stock with Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink and cut it out with Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics. This cluster is layered over a circle of pattern paper cut with the Circle STAX Die-namic.

Here I used the Open Scallop Doily Die-namics cut from black corrugated cardboard and a circle cut with the Circle STAX from pattern paper.  I've also cut out and added several musical notes cut from silver cardstock with the Musical Notes Die-namics.

The Open Scallop Doily was the perfect home for another embellishment cluster. So I added a tag, layered star and I used the cute guitar pick from the NEW LLD Accent It - Rock and Roll Die-namics stamped with the sentiment from the NEW LLD Document It - Rock On Stamp set.
