Lily Bee - Chipboard

Me and the talented Christine are up on the Lily Bee blog today featuring Lily Bee chipboard.  I interpreted the layout sketch from earlier this month and Christine interpreted the card sketch.

This was an old high school photo of our jazz band that a friend had tagged me with on Facebook.  Ancient history here...ha!  I don't remember this as well as one of my friends, but apparently we played Stella by Starlight a lot.  Our band director did pick out some awesome, cool songs.  I loved band...lived and breathed it.  
I rotated the sketch and did some misting...made this funky to go with the photo and theme.  And by the way, that's me playing the sax on first row, second from right.  But clarinet was my thing.  I only played sax for jazz.
I added more layers of pencil, distress ink and masking, stitching, and then the cut out pieces of pattern paper and chipboard...which really went well with the theme.
This really seems like it's both a long time ago, and just yesterday!  The trombone player standing up has gone on to play professionally...Mark Mullins with Bonerama.
Mark, me, and Ronnie all had scholarships to Loyola University.  Bittersweet memories...I didn't follow through with the scholarship and it definitely makes me wonder what my life would be like if I had...

And today is my intro post over on Paper Issues!  So please stop by and get to know even more about me and save 20% in the shop with code PATRICIA.
