Bottle Swap

I am so excited to participate in Yoliebean's bottle swap. I watched from the sidelines last time, and thought it was neat. I am always so hesitant to do anything out of my comfort zone, but this time I just joined. I am having the best time finding stuff for my swap partner. Her name is Ozelle and she is from Chelsea, MA. How crazy is that? I wanted to send her a reusable bag from Disneyland since I have a season pass and it is my favorite place, but I need to stop shopping and just put it together and send it out already. I will keep you posted on what I both send, and what I receive. Yay!

Gutter Girlz Promt #34

Here is my first whack at a prompt. I thought long and hard about it, and it just wasn't coming out right. I think what I was missing is the personal part of the challenge. It is hard to open up sometimes, so now I totally understand why these are called challenges!

Gutter Girlz Challenge: Prompt #34
(12 X 12 Scrapbook Page)
I'm Still Sugar and Spice
One of the Boys by Katy Perry
Ribbon/Bows AND Dirty Socks

My take on it:
I started out with 12x12 denim textured paper. I chose the demin paper because it is casual. The spider reflects the lyrics of the song, " I saw a spider, I didn't Scream." The background mat around the picture is black with hot pink lips, and hot pink hearts. It is feminine without haing to be stereotypical pink hearts and flowers. My personal journaling was a little tricky for me at first, but it is the truth. I used the prompt Sugar and Spice to label the project, which also reflects us two in the picture. I am spicy, and he is the sweet sugary one, which is a perfect blend. I chose to use some of the lyrics from "One of the Boys" next to my picture. The only reference to socks is me wearing my favorite argyle skull socks in the picture.
Oh yeah and by the way, my "prom" picture is a picture taken at the Fetish and Fantasy Halloween Ball in Vegas. We go every year, since Halloween is our anniversary, and every year we take a new picture.

I am so excited because I have discovered a world of scrapbooking/crafting/art. I stumbled upon Gutter Girlz by accident, and just went from there. I am really excited to participate in some of the challenges. I can't wait to just jump in and get my feet wet! I thank everyone in advance for all the advice and inspiration I am just dying to soak in.
