SASCRAP59 - COSTUME PARTY theme - First Day Scrapbook Page

It's time for another Scrap Theme Challenge at Stampin' Addicts - SASCRAP59 theme is COSTUME PARTY. Run with this - there are several ways you can be inspired by the COSTUME PARTY theme. Here is one idea - create layers and a type of MASK - this one is just emboss resist masking. But you could create several masked layers or you could create some peek a boo elements or you could scrap a costume party! Have fun, be inspired and go SCRAP! Be sure to share your pages by uploading them to Stampin' Addicts, any online gallery, or to your blog and link them to the challenge at Stampin' Addicts.

For this First Day scrapbook page, I did an Emboss Resist technique on the strip of First Edition Designer Series Paper. This is heavily sponged and distress and matted onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. The photos are matted onto Early Espresso cardstock. Several leaves, from Gently Falling stamp set, are stamped in a variety of fall colors onto the Crumb Cake cardstock page. The title is stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink with Schoolbook Serif Alphabet. I added two tabs of Twill Tape as embellishments.

Here are two older scrapbook pages which also fit the Costume Party theme with other types of Masks.

This TEMPER page features a Window Sheet, which is stamped with StazOn ink and then layered over the photo to create a mask. The journaling on this page is written along the outside of the photos in a continue string, chronicling the phases of DS's temper tantrums.

This LITTLE GIRL page features a Vellum mask, where I free hand cut the question mark out of Cardstock Vellum and did my journaling around it as a frame. This is a page for DD's album - there is an envelope on the back of the page with a letter from me to her. Journaling around the question mark is two quotes: There you go ~ "Little girl, full of life, full of fun...The world smiles when she does. That's what she thinks. That's all that matters." Bracha Goykadosh   "All the precious time, like the wind, the years go by. Precious butterfly, spread your wings and fly." Bob Carlisle
Along the side: " What are your dreams? Where are you going? Who will you become? How will we let you go?"
Along the bottom: "So much to say and just a lifetime to say it. How quickly time passes. If I had my way, I'd keep you safe in my arms." Above All Else by Stormie Omartian

I had imagined this in my head a bit different and am still not sure if I'm too crazy about the way this turned out, but it's done.
