Chip Art and a music challenge!

This is what I made today with my new toy!!!!!! As I posted earlier, I bought the coolest kit ever to emboss  chipboard called "Chip Art from Melody Ross". This is part of the cover of a project I am working on to teach in Ft. Lauderdale next month. If you like to play with techniques, this is something you want in your scrapbook kingdom. It is not cheap but it is worth every penny.

This page is created with my April Kit from Paper Poppy Kit Co. (http://paperpoppykitco.blogspot.com/)
They are having their first Challenge. This is what Aphra wrote:

This month's challenge is a recipe. Yep, a dash of this and a dash of that, but with a scrappy twist.Your layout must include the following:

1. Use the colors black and white
2. Use a music symbol
3. Use song lyrics in your title

This is my version:
I used Prima stamp on 3 of my paper blocks on the left, used the ribbon to make the flower, glass beads to embellish the center of the flower  made with pink pipe cleaner, a corner of the chipboard tile covered with "real" music paper, Maya Road music notes were painted in black and pieces of my leftover papers from BG.

This recipe was SUPER PERFECT for my picture!!!!! My father in law (85 years old) sang  a very beautiful song written in 1925 by Irving Berlin called "Always" to Danny and Lexie on their wedding day. I just love how it turned out. Happy Tuesday again!
