Top 15 at 15

Hello!! Hope you had a great Labor Day! My kids all started school today so I could not sleep last night---
I decided to go into my craft room and create--Here is the page I came up with: I love documenting Cara's music lists at different ages. Someday she will get a laugh at her favorite songs. This one features her Top 15 at 15.

I used Echo Park's Happy Days collection for most of this page. It was perfect for the theme!

I used the jute box sticker as a focus for the page...changing it up a bit by adding the fan behind it and adding a button and a rhinestone stickers for buttons:

I added a lot of machine stitching and some SRM stickers (the large numbers and the sticker stitching on the photo) to complete the page:



Supplies: Patterned paper- Happy Days (Echo Park Paper Co.); element stickers- Happy Days (Echo Park); buttons; SRM stickers (We've Got Your Stickers plus- Sweet, We've Got Your Number, Extra Large); rhinetones (Recollections, Michael's); sewing machine; ink-pink (Stampin' Up!); ribbon (The Paper Studio)

Thanks for stopping by!

What a great idea!! I know my favourites at that age are quite different...okay, well, some of them are different...than they are now. I may just have to CASE your idea with my 15 & 17yo daughters. I wonder how different their lists will be. I might even do my sons...the 21yo will likely be wildly different and totally entertaining - and then go look back at them even in 10 years!

That is awesome! What a great idea! As my kids are little now, I can totally do that for them as they grow up! Thanks for the awesome idea and inspiration!
I hope they have a wonderful first day of school and meet lots of new friends!

I meant "they" as your kids! LOL! After I published that comment, I read it, and it sounded weird!

What a cool idea to make a list of the kiddo's favorite songs at this age (btw...you are NOT old enough to have a 15 y/o!!)

Susan said...

What a fabulous idea! This will be something so special to your daughter as she gets older and has a chance to look back. Hope your children had a great day at school. Sleep well tonight!

I can't tell you how much I love this page. It's outrageously wonderful! And it makes me really want to document a music page. Just terrific.

Natalia said...
