ARCHISCRAPS & Guest Spot at KRAFT+ July..

Hello there, welcome to July... yep.. the gentle slide into the rest of the year has begun... Lets hope it is a gentle slide and not some mega tumble into Christmas!! hehe!

And lots of new challenges going up to inspire and enjoy!

The July challenge for ARCHISCRAPS is to be inspired by this lovely old barn...
and to use some distressing and some wood.. you may also like to use some corrugated card too..  I created a card, I love the old barn red color and I have used some corrugated card and a wood chippie too.. and it is..

 You can link up and see the other DT creationsHERE!!!

And I was asked some time ago if I would guest for KRAFT+ jULY CHALLENGE and of course I was very honored to be asked and said a big YES!! Well when I got the challenge for July, I just smiled from ear to ear.. It is the prettiest board eva!!!  and I hope you will love it as much as I did! And it is..
This is oh so pretty!! And use music paper. If you dont have any music paper then just google it, there are free music papers you can print off and use.. I however, had lots of old music books I have had from a Lifeline book sale..  So it was then a matter of which photo.. My DD had come home and she was all dressed up for the races and I had to snap a few piccys before she went so I have used one of those... I was inspired by the colors, music heart, the feather and the rolled roses, which I have hand made for my layout.. and my take..

some closer views ...

Those gorgeous flourishes are 2 Crafty!

Music paper feathers!!

Hello gorgeous!!
The pink roses are hand made.. I have a little picture tutorial on how to create them.. I apologize I cannot remember where I got this from, I have had it for many years...  So I give credit to an unknown source, thank you for sharing how to create these roses..  You dont need anything but scissors to create these roses and a little practice!!!
