We have a "Musically-themed Challenge”  inspiration photo this week, above.  You DO NOT have to use this exact photo- it’s just there to explain the Challenge theme.  

So.... your S: CY challenge is musically themed. This one has a SHORT turn around time...  You only have until midnight AST on April 30 to complete and add your "take" on this challenge to Mr. Linky (below) in order for you to net a  ballot in the wonderful April Prize Draw by our Guest Designer Jenifer Cowles! 

IDEAS: You could include a musical image OR a music note, staff, bass or treble clef,  OR a quote about songs/music, OR a piece of musically-themed paper, OR a title related to music (a song, music-terminology themed, etc), when you create your layout.

Just USE YOUR IMAGINATION and just make something on your LO relate to music IN ANY WAY.  This can be subtle, or obvious. There are no rules.  J  J  Have fun!

Here's our Guest Designer, Jenifer Cowles' interpretation of this week's challenge! She created a gorgeous canvas!  :)

Jenifer Cowles
Jenifer told me that she made this Canvas for her daughter's 11th birthday last weekend, and she was thrilled with the way it turned out. Apparently her daughter loved the gift! :) 

Let's have a peek at what our Design Team has created using this Sketch and general musical theme.

Patchi told me that when she thinks of music, she thinks of parades. She also told me that "we watched one for the first time when we went to Disney with the kids.They loved it! I added some rub-on musical notes to the brochure for added emphasis."
