I made this for Challenge #20 "Use Your Stash" over at Dream Girls (their link is listed under my "Blogs That Inspire Me" and you can also click on the title to this post). The challenge was to use patterned papers that were older than six months, use a paper tearing technique and use the title "I'm Not...". All of these patterned papers are far older than six months and the SHY alpha's are several YEARS old..lol. I saw the painted and stitched edges in the layout "Best Buds" by Suzy Plantamura and had to give it a try. Suzy added sequins to the stitched border but I went with black brads so I could turn them into musical notes. My paper tearing is actually my photo paper..lol. I tore and ripped the edges of my pic. I wanted to keep straight lines on the border strips and I used the Martha Stewart embossed edge punch for the BG paper.
I also went shopping at my favorite vintage store again but it's late so I'll post pics tomorrow.
I'm a little worried because my camera is not working properly. It works but you can't see anything on the display screen. I think maybe the flash or light that makes it work is shot or something. If anyone has had this happen to your camera, please give me a comment and help me figure out what this is. I'm hoping it's something simple since it does work.
