What's your favorite band?

The newest challenge is up at http://whatisyourfavething.blogspot.com/ and it is to show us your favorite band - I know Julie meant for us to do a creation about our favorite musical band but really my favorite band is my wedding band - and of course I needed to add my engagement ring in the photo. The paper is Making Memories Paperie (don't you love that soft blue?), the little picture is from a day book from the 1940s (a lucky find at the used book store! and the coolest thing is that the person who owned it had the same first name as my mother!!!!), alphas are October afternoon, pink paislee and Making Memories, and the black and white journaling tags and butterflies are Heidi Swapp.
Hope you join us in the challenge - we would love to see your favorite band - and we have a great prize from Gauche Alchemy!!!!!!!!!

I LOVE your play on words here... such a GREAT page, Chris! I was actually going to do something similar, but ran out of time. I wanted to do a page on the "Silly Bands" (rubber bracelets) that are all the rage with Bryn & everyone else these days! Eventually I'm going to make the page, even if it IS LATE! lol

Hope you're enjoying the weekend!

Hugs...
