My friend Laura
is one of the girls that runs the challenge blog, Scrapdragons
. I've been wanting to do some of their challenges, but haven't gotten it together until this month.
Their current challenge
is to do a layout inspired by an album cover, whether it be the colors or design or title... whatever.
I've been wanting to scrap the pics from the Over the Rhine
show we went to last month, and this challenge totally inspired me to do it! Like a doofus, I had forgotten my camera battery that night, but the nice couple sitting next to our friends Jeremy & Christa
sent them some pics of the night, along with my friend Kim's
pictures... so I was still able to document this amazing concert.
I was inspired by the Trumpet Child album that Over the Rhine just released (and this was the tour they are on, so I thought it was fitting). I did a similar background to their cd by stamping with turquoise acrylic paint and a Heidi Swapp damask stamp on top of a pale blue Bazzill cardstock. I also used a Basic Grey floral rubon from a Crop Addict kit to make the "trumpet" like on the album cover. I put it on blue cardstock and then added black pen lines around it. It's made more dimensional by using a pop dot beneath it.

our manufacturer challenge

gave us these
, so I had to get some more because I love them so much!
