Elvis the Rockstrar

Ching says, KAYA!

I'm excited! This is my first time to join the KAYANG-KAYA, KAYA! Challenge. I chose Elvis Presley as my entry in this challenge. As a young woman, whenever I saw or heard him singing, I could never sit down. I would race up and down the aisles in the concert halls. Now, years after his death, I still listen to him on my MP3 player in the quiet comfort of my home. I still enjoy, immensely, his every performance.

Elvis Presley is one the most important figures of Twentieth Century popular culture.

Journaling:
P - Peerless. He was matchless in musical performance.
O - Overwhelming with emotion when he sang. Its like he was singing love songs only to me.
G - Gentle and mild in manner and disposition.
I - Incredible and extra-ordinary; imperial in every way.

Materials used:
DCWV metallic patterned papers, cardstock, die-cut chipboard alphabets with glitters, monogram embellishments, glitter glue, gelly roll metallic pens for journaling, photo from entertainment webshot.com

Techniques:
Designed the monogram embellishments and journaling, glitter glued the stars and side of the guitar and cropped pictures.

About Me:
My name is Ching, a stay at home mom to a 15 year old son, married to a wonderful man, named Bob. We live on the southeast coast of USA. I started scrapbooking in 2004, but like most, I have more supplies than pages, done. I eagerly begun scrapping again when I joined the PinoySrapbookers group on January 2008 and quickly did some albums of layouts for my family. I love to make double layout with 2 to 4 photos each.

Hi Ching!! I am here in the East Coast - wish you were here nearby, we can scrap together:-)wouldn't that be fun? I went to Graceland (Memphis) last summer and it was at least 101 degrees.
Regards,
Julie
