You Rock Layout

My son started guitar lessons last year after a failed attempt at piano lessons. While he was practicing a little while ago, I realized that I didn't have any pictures of him with his "electric guitar." He wanted to play electric, LOL, not accoustic which is what we started with. LOL. He loves it and that's what's important. I decided to enter this in a try something new challenge. I'm always looking for new ways to use scrap/leftover paper. In one of my scrapbooking magazines, they suggested creating borders and stripes using this is my layout using just small leftover pieces. I scrapbook 8.5 x 11 and so I have tons of 3 inch strips and always have tons of 1 inch strips of tons of paper. So this is my attemp at using some of these. I have to admit, I really like how it turned out. I also find myself stuck in a rut and make cuts using the colors the object is suppose to be...hence a red apple, or a red strawberry so the last couple of projects I've tried to use different colors on something traditional...hence the blue patterned guitar. I also made some apples with paisly paper and they were fun too. Any, here is my entry. I think I like the idea of the various colors on the border. I know....most people already do this, but I have TONS of paper that I never know quite what to do with. LOL. So I've been trying to make cards and find other uses to get it used up because a lot of it is really pretty. Anyway... nothing to exciting but I do like how the strips turned out. :-)
