Macrame`, a Bracelet, and Sequins

I can not begin to tell you the joy I feel when I look into the boxes of pictures my mother gave to me from my growing up years and before! I have pictures to keep me scrapping until sometime in the year 2145 AD!!! I love every one of them too! When I saw this picture, I first laughed out loud...then I looked closer and fell in love with my mother's clogs, and her seriousness about her macrame` gift she gave my grandparents (her parents)! Then, I couldn't wait to get this one scrapped and into the album! I created this layout on an 8.5 x 11 kraft paper, adding to it some old ribbon stash(yes, it is for the Use Your Stash Challenge blog!~Thanks jingle for the link!)
Iused some Sassafrass Lass from Bree's Shop Crop Suey Kit, random flowers, MM mini alphas, plastic embossed flowers, stickles, random flowers, and a few other yummies.

I did it...I made a bracelet....I have wanted to for a long time....but thought I couldn't do it. BUT I DID IT! ME!!! I made a bracelet...ME! I know, I am as surprised as you are that I made a bracelet! Phew...enough of that! I used turquois and brown beads with some silver as spacers.


Sequins???? Who uses sequins anymore? LOL This was completed for a challenge I was running over at All Moments Remembered. I loved this picture of my brother and I from the early 70's. What makes me crack up over this layout most of all is that he and I about drove my mother insane...we were so naughty and always into mischief!

I can't even remember the patterned paper I used for this. Oops!

I LOVE the bracelet! That came out beautifully. Your LO's are great. Funny, but great! I'm coming back for inspiration later. I, too, just cleaned out some photo albums and will be scrapping LOTS of OLD pics! ;-)

Love your LO! My faves are when you do "messy" ones like this. Don't take that the wrong way, I just love your placement and embellishment choices! So inspiring. Oh, and don't make fun of ppl who still use sequins (like me). LOL!

Hi Jessica!
I love your layouts here, and the bracelet is awesome! I also want to answer the question you posted on my blog - I think I understand you correctly and sure! You can use that title and link back to my blog post - that would be fun! Let me know where your challenge is so I can take a peek too, okay?
