SBG1 Challenge #5 - The Pink Laundry Room

This 12x12 scrapbook page was made for a challenge for a blogger group I am in. It was Siobhan's turn to host the challenge, and you can find her blog HERE, if you get a minute, stop by and visit her, it's well worth the time. Her challenge was to create a card based on the laundry room of a wonderful woman named Stephanie Vest, a mother of young children, who recently lost her battle with cancer. Stephanie certainly had a "flair" for design, her laundry room was bright pink, with a B/W zebra striped ceiling, complete with a blingy chandelier and tassles hanging from the cabinet knobs! Click HERE to see pics of the laundry room which served as the challenge inspiration.

I didn't use the zebra print, although I REALLY wanted to! The base of this page is Basic Black CS, layered with Whisper White. Photo strips are made with the Spiral Punch, the flower was colored with a Pink Passion marker, pink CS is the same color. There are Square Rhinestones along each bottom edge. The middle mat is going to hold a pic (5x7) of my 4 year old Diva in her pink sequin dress (dress-up), the strips along the sides will hold little punched face shots of her taken during the same month. The bottom black rectangular piece will hold a piece of white CS with journaling. The colors and rhinestones are directly inspired by Stephanie's laundry room, it being a LO to hold pics of my daughter is inspired mostly because Stephanie's story makes me really think about my kids, so I wanted to do a scrapbook LO instead of a card, and I hope that's ok for this challenge.

All paper, ink and punches are SU. DRAMA QUEEN is computer generated, and cut out. Paper flower and Square Rhinestones are from my stash, as is the ribbon. No clue their origin, or their age...LOL! Clear Rhinestone brad in the center of the flower is SU.
