Page for Marion's B-day album

Wow! I've already received comments from my last post! Thank you guys - you make me smile :) It's nice to have crafty friends :)
So, what to post after so long? Well ... here's something fun: Marion's Birthday Album Page.
Marion is the creator of the Girls Gone Scrappy club which I joined a few months ago. At first, it was also a kit club, but that became too complicated with over 50 members, so now it's just a mini-album trade club.

Marion recently had a birthday, so Stephanie (fellow GGS Gal) put together a surprise birthday gift. We were all to make a double sided 6x6 page and mail it to her. She would assemble it into a mini-album and send it Marion.
You can find her post about the whole album here. You can see the Youtube video about it here. My page is in the Part 3.
This is my contribution:

1st page ...

Chipboard based 6x6 page with scalloped edge. Textured peach paper from DCWV. Misc. ribbons, lace and fibers (I know the wide velvet is Basic Grey). Antique book page crumpled and glued down and then painted over with acrylic and some Tim Holtz crackle paint. The metal frame from Close to My Heart covers most of the painting. Large Mimose Prima flower, peach flowers from Making Memories and cream from Prima with some misc. tulle and rhinestone flowers. Key is misc. and zipper pull is from Basic Grey. Misc. door knocker.

So I basically just dug a lot of goodies out from my stash :) I don't even remember where I got half of them :)

Page 2:

Same textured paper from DCWV. Flowers from Prima and CTMH. Jeweled fabric brad is K&Co. The silver handle brad I bought from Starlight Studio. Hero Arts for the green vine ribbon and Walmart for the green beaded fringe (can you tell Marion likes green?) American Crafts Thickers (white) and Pressed Metals metal alphas (silver). Hinges, green acrylic flower brad and vintage hat pin are from Making Memories.
I asked the GALS to send me adjectives that described Marion (hence the 'She is...') and then printed them all out and put them under the hidden hinged page.

I thought it turned out pretty well. It was nice to be able to do something with a bunch of texture and dimension. I hate when you do things for scrapbook pages that ultimately get squashed and pressed flat when placed in an album.
I hope you like it :)
