Amanda ~ Goin' To The Hop!

Hi everyone!!  It's pretty cold here today, anyway for Texas it is.  We stayed in the low 40's all day. I know that some of you would love to be in the 40's, but for us it's cold!!  So it was a perfect day for scrapping, and what better inspiration than yesterdays sketch from Stuck On U Sketches.  I love to play with their sketches, it just kinda gives me that jump start I need!!  I also found this  WILD "Pink Zebra" paper in my stash and thought, what in the world am I going to use this on?  Everytime I looked at it, it just screamed Cher from when the Sonny and Cher Show was on, way back when, and Cher played that lady at the laundry mat that wore those cateye glasses and those tight, tight leopard pants.  lol  Then I remembered that my daughter, Amanda, had gone to a 50's theme dance at school when she was around 15.  And I had borrowed this poodle skirt from a friend, who just happens to be my boss now.  The skirt worked out perfect and notice the big class ring on the chain around her neck? That was her dads.  She and her friends had a lot of fun at that dance... And I think the photos are perfect with this paper!!!
I also did this for a few other challenges, which are:
Stuck On U Sketches ~ Sketch
Crafty Creations ~ Celebration ~ School Dance
Flutter By Wednesday ~ Open ~ and I used a couple butterflies

And now here's my supply list:

Websters Designer Trim ~ Pink loopy ribbon around the circle

EK Success ~ Glitter Alphabet

Hi, I just joined splitcoaststampers.com and I seemed to be attracted to all of YOUR pages.. my Goodness you are sooo talented, I just love your work. I am totally green at scrapbooking, and don't even know what stamping is lol.. I am starting my first scrapbook, for my wedding. Can you tell me what you use for materials and/or where you buy? Any tips? I am simply speechless.
