Gorgeous LO's...I love the wedding band idea...Fabulous!! The first album I ever owned was 'The Monkees' & I've been to several Bruce Springsteen concerts in my time..I loved Depeche Mode in the 80's & am already humming Mamma Mia as I write!!...I am blown away by the news that you were a Roadie for U2, Julie!! But who will I choose as my all-time fave band?!! Hmmmmm?!!

Joni Parker said...

Wow WOW wow WOW wow WOW.....and WOW!!! There are some seriously cool layouts right there... OMG...that talent humbles me!! I'm almost (yes, almost) speechless after looking at those layouts....seriously...I want to do that "grungy/fill the page" kinda layout, but I tend to scrap "simple and clean"....ok, so that may be the bigger challenge for me this inspired by these layouts and do a grungy/fill the page layout!!

Jana said...

I'm afraid I'm not going to make the deadline for this one! we have had a few days in London to celebrate both my sons 14th & my....well, not 14th Birthdays!! So I'm out of time to complete my 'Fave band' will be finished though, & added to my now quite full TAAFOMFT album!! I'll be waiting to see which of the stunning entries so far is the winner & what the next challenge is! BFN Sandi :)
