Contest Page

This is a page I just finished to enter on Cosmocricket.typepad.com. It's for a chance to be published in Scrapbook trends Magazine. You have to follow a layout they posted. This is my first time doing anything like this, but I thought I would try it.....

This is a picture of my grandfather when he made his first Communion.

First thing I did, was to age a tag using some coffee and grinds. Then I used a rub on to put the decoration on it and did the journaling on my PC. I added some great ribbon around the photo, aged the papers with some distress ink, then added some eyelets and embellishments. Used another rub on for the word Love under the photo, added some twine to an old button. Then I used a great antique looking nameplate for the title. I also found this great leaf ribbon which I used on the top for a border. Then I put some corners on the large paper.
