Well it's been ten years and a thousand tears...

And look at the mess I'm in...

On Smiley Julie's blog, These are a Few of My Favorite Things
this week's scrappy throwdown is 

These Are a Few of My Favorite Bands!!!

Julie has got me hooked on challenges!  sheesh!  hee!

Oh boy!  Its hard to choose one band!  Its hard to choose two!  
But I'm up for the challenge!  

Y'all know that my fav band is Pearl Jam
but you might not know 
that my next fav band is Social Distortion!

Mike Ness, love that tattoo'd man!
(At a concert in SF, I saw the band going onstage and I made eye contact with Mike!
whooo!  Made my night! LOL! 
and psst, he was wearing eyeliner!)

I did this awhile ago, and I don't know who took the photos...
they were forwarded to me by my co-worker and concert buddy,

This is one of my very favorite layouts!

I hand-cut the Old English Social Distortion title!
(I'm just a little obsessively detail oriented!)
Background paper & stickers by Mara Johnson,
other bkgnd ppr by 7Gypsies,
rub-on grunge lettering (I don't remember by whom),
and rub-on Basic Grey swirlies,
Jolee's Boutique skelly,
Hambly transparency, 
paper roses &
other embellishments from a Paper Pixie kit!

sigh, Mike Ness...
