Music Maker

Another Counterfeit Kit Challenge layout! You can see my March kits here. 


I snapped this picture at Megan's spring concert last year when she was in fifth grade. She started playing the violin in 3rd and then the flute in 4th. She usually has 3 performances each year for each instrument and we NEVER see her. She's always in the center and between the music stands and the conductor we're lucky if we see the top of her head. She really needs to practice more and get 1st chair! Last spring they performed a piece where the different instruments each had a turn standing up while they played - we finally saw her! (btw, we've had two orchestra performances & one band performance so far this year and we haven't seen her again, lol.)

I used the die-cut My Mind's Eye paper from my 'Tweet Spring' kit. I slapped some green paint on the area where I was placing the picture. I slid my journaling tag under end and then just outlined the pic & tag a few times to make it stand out more. I looped and stapled ribbon and pom-poms along the bottom of the picture. I used Making Memories shimmer stickers and placed the title in one of the swirls - I just love how that turned out! There were some little hearts with the alphas so I turned those into music notes for my tweeting birds.  :)

If you haven't already heard about my giveaway please see Sunday's post for details by clicking FREE KIT!!!
I've pulled out a bunch of paper and I'm going thru embellishments next! I'll have a kit pic up by Friday so be sure to check back!

Thanks again for stopping by and happy creating!

Glad you managed to get a picture of this. I always find my pics are so poor in school halls they aren't worth scrapping.
