A Hundred Nights of Fun and Games, A Thousand Empty Glasses

The challenge this month on Sarah's Cards blog is to use your clothes as inspiration for a layout or card.  I knew straight away that I wanted to use the souvenir t-shirt from the recent Marillion convention that we attended in the Netherlands to inspire a layout about the weekend.

This is the t-shirt that inspired the layout -

Back view -

I used Echo Park, For the Record 'Stamp of Approval' to get the postage stamp shape for the layout.  I then used navy Bazill cardstock and matted my photos onto a paler blue cardstock to match the colours of the t shirt.  My title was taken from the song lyrics on the back of the t-shirt, which I cut on the BigKick using a Sizzlet alphabet - Yarn.  I found a picture of the stamp that was used for the front of the t-shirt online and printed it out on cardstock and raised it up on foam pads as an embellishment.

There is still plenty of time to join in with the challenge as the closing date is 30th June and if you haven't recently taken a look at Sarah's Cards blog then do as it has had a bit of a makeover and the design team have been blogging some great projects and ideas.
