Music Makes My Heart Sing!

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a great week! Thank you for all the nice comments and emails I received about my watering can tutorial.... I really had a great time making them! For those of you who requested patterns, I would love to see what you make!

Today I have a quick post for you... this is a LO of my darling little girl practicing her guitar. She has a balcony out her bedroom and likes to go out there to read and play her guitar!

I wanted to make it girly and feminine but still "rough it up" a bit! I inked almost everything I could get my hands on including the white flower ribbon border! My sewing machine was acting up so I decided I would do a little faux stitching around the pink layers.


 I wish I could get a better photo of the music notes for you. I heat embossed the chipboard notes with black embossing powder. I repeated the embossing process about 4 times so it was nice and thick and then while it was still hot, I stamped some designs on them. In real life it looks really neat but I just couldn't get it to pick up on the camera! And do you like those cute little roses?! I made those with a cute little quilling tool!! :)

I printed the pictures in black and white and then added  a Prima gem frame around Lauren. To make it stand out a bit more, I decided to take my piercing tool to scratch a design in around the frame. I love how it added a distressed look to the layout! Overall, I am pretty happy with the layout.... it is so Lauren!!

Thank you for stopping by today! I will be back tomorrow with a new post so be sure to come back to see what I created! As always, thank you for all your kind comments! I love reading them!
