Ah Prom – An American Tradition. It has been one of the things that all three of our exchange students have looked forward to. All of that to say is that I have gone through 4 prom seasons now and have scrapbooked all of them (See 2014 Prom).
Part of my scrapbooking philosophy is that the pictures and ephemera is what is should be highlighted on the page, and so you will see that this spread has minimal embellishments – because I wanted to get as many pictures as possible onto the spread. I bordered the pictures and the prom ticket very thinly with a black border, and used a black and white background paper. To add interest to the page without taking away from the pictures, I created triple torn side edges using a larger print paper along with simple black and white papers. I used a jagged edge tearing tool to help keep the tears “even”.
I apologize for taking a hiatus for a while on posting my pages. It has been an adventurous year, with a job change, and a 3 week trip to Europe (Working on those scrapbooks now!).
But now to the latest page – Prom 2014. Our exchange student decided to go to prom with a group of guy friends, and they showed up at our house for pictures! The design of this page is fairly simple – I used silver paper to border the pictures, and used stock “high school prom” paper that I had from a high school themed paper pack. I had to get the prom ticket on the page, and completed the elegant them with some pearl brads.
