Sing!

This week, our theme at Sweet Sassy Diva's is One Word Title.  Lori here from Srappin'MyStressAway with a layout of my son's kindergarten music program.  They sang and danced to several songs.  It was so cute!!!



I started out by printing this musical note paper from Vintage Papers on my Cricut Imagine.

I had at least one head (from the parents in front of me) in every picture I took, so I trimmed the best one up a bit and cut four others to 2 x 2.5 inches.  


I grabbed my Gypsy and Quarter Note and got to work.

I spelled out "SING" with the notes sized to 1.25 inches.  The piano is sized at 2.18 inches.  I moved the layers around so I could cut out each layer in a different color.

I had a little trouble with the blue paper.  It was a bit thinner than the black and red cardstock.  I re-cut it with thicker cardstock and had better luck.

I wanted to add something behind the notes, so I cut out these banner shapes from Beyond Birthdays sized to 2.25 inches.  I used the same blue cardstock.

I needed somewhere to journal, so I put a 3" music note on my mat.  I also wanted to add a few more musical symbols in black.  The treble clef and microphone are both sized to 1.88 inches, and the music notes are sized to 1.94 inches. 

Tanner is in the top row, second from the right.

I pop-dotted the piano and journaling "note" to the page.

I added some tissue tape from Michaels behind my musical note letters and pop-dotted them down.  A little twine connected my banner flags together.

I added some twine to my photo booth row of photos.  I also tucked the microphone behind the photos, but layered the music notes on top.

I made some flags out of tissue tape.  The strip of photos is pop-dotted to the paper, so the tape is just tucked behind.

This was our music teacher's very last program as she retired at the end of the school year.  We are excited for her to begin her retirement and excited for our new music teacher as well!!

Thanks Bobbi Jo for having me over today!!
