Scrapping the Music

Music is something that always makes me think; it is the soundtrack of our lives and a vehicle for our memories. Just a few bars and I am instantly transported to another time or emotion. That is why when Mary from Scrapping the Music asked me to join their design team, I was happy to take part. So if you are inspired by music, I hope you will come and join us!

Here is my first layout as a design team member and also part of my entry for the design team call at American Crafts- I am going try out and see what they think of my style. All of the new Thickers -now that is my idea of fun! Thickers are my most 'go to' supply.

A note about the photo - I've been playing with Photo Shop lately and I edited this photo using Color Pop by Mindy's Photo Actions and then layered a texture mask from Lily After 5 between layers of the photo and made the top layer into an overlay. Then I added the text for my journaling. The photo looks like it was printed on canvas, I love the effect!

Thanks for all of the warm wishes about the Webster's DT! It has been a fun week, scrapbook wise. :)

See you soon.
