Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia August Challenge

Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia's August Challenge well I love cake, I love butterflies and with 3 kids that play instruments any challenge that gets me scrapping those music photos is a challenge for me and I had to have join in for the first time this month.








I decided to use the photo, sheet music and cut up promotional poster from my daughter's Mozart concert that I wound up not using in last month's Kraft+ Challenge.

For the lovely rainbow of butterflies I decided to colour a Chipboard Butterfly from my prize pack I recieved from 2Crafty Chipboard for my June Scrap the Boys layout, after finishing my layout I realised the butterfly I selected was a dragonfly, had a giggle at my sleep deprived self.
I achieve this rainbow by base coating with Gesso and then I started from the middle with yellow and added each colour to create my rainbow of lilac, pale blue, light green, yellow, light orange and light red.


As the poster bits already had pink ink I decided to ink the sheet music with yellow and then blue to tie it in with the rainbow, I also added blue ink to the pink cardstock.

I selected my other embellishments to add to the rainbow on my page.  A purple doily I got at the Destash Market, rose ribbon from my stash and these cute crochet flowers I got from D-lish Scraps as I felt they tied in nicely with the rainbow.  I also added some more of these cute music and cello charms I used last month to my layout.













At first I was going to go with a background paper that had several colours of the rainbow in it but I decided on a softer background.  The paper is from 7Gypsies and is rather old, I like the pattern on it, it just helps with the feel I wanted from the layout.

So what do you think of my quick layout for Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia's August Challenge?

      I love that I was able to use sheet music played on the night and the promotion flyer to document this memory for my daughter.
