New Challenge & Tag, Tag, Tag!

Challenge #4- All About Music is the next challenge over at So Tell Me Your Story... This layout, didn't turn out immediately as I had envisioned after wrecking the MME transparency I used to write my music, I remembered I had this awesome DCWV patterned paper. I was thrilled that after cutting out the guitar it still looked good on a 8 1/2 x 11 piece of cardstock!

There really only was one positioning for the guitar, so the rest just flowed! I had to make a late night trip to Michael's for letter stickers I ran out of. I couldn't find matching glittery ones, but I did find the same font in just plain brown, so it all worked out, and it still looks fine to me!

I don't know about you, but to me...I think this is one of my most favourite layouts I have done! Just everything about it, makes it feel!

(Click image to enlarge)
The little star accent, is layered with a brown button, and on top of that is an epoxy sticker. I really love that simple embellishment. The sticker really works on that button to add to the feel of my layout! Check out the challenge, and come and join in! All about me books, are really important to leave behind!

Well, it would appear, that I've been tagged 3 times in the past couple days! Let me see if I can get caught up today!
