Stampin' Up Feels Good and Borders Scoring Plate Chalboard Scrapbook

The Best Things in Life..... Chalkboard Scrapbook

This is a scrapbook page of my son and his girlfriend. She has brought him alot of happiness, they so fun!!

 I used the Chalkboard Technique, and the borders scoring plate. I first tried the Scoring Plate on Core'dinations Pool Party, very difficult to get the scoring nice with that paper. But the regular Pool Party Cardstock, worked great!!
I used the new color Baked Brown Sugar! Oh wow! Very nice brown, easy on the eyes! It will be a favorite. I also used the new Very Vintage Buttons- I just couldn't stand myself!
For the Chalkboard Technique , I  "cheated" and did it a couple ways. I used Versamark and then Embossed with White Embossing Powder, and did the same with the hearts. The hearts didn't come out perfect ( and you know how we don't make "mistakes" so made it more of the chalkboard look! it worked out! )  :) I made the chalkboard "smudges" using the Embossing Buddy, and used the Sponge and versamark with White Embossing Powder to make the  Chalkboard "flakes"
My first attempt at the Chalkboard  Technique.
I really like the colors and the design, my son and his girlfriend LOVED it!!
