August musical challenge

This is the Country Music hall of fame in Nashville.
As you can see it is in the shape of a base.

These hints will give you a clue to our challenge this month.

                                          MUSICAL THEME

You can make anything featuring paper so long as it has a musical theme.

We are pleased to welcome a guest designer for this month, Jackie Edwards

Hi!  My name is Jackie Edwards and I live in Southend-on-Sea, Essex in the UK.

I am a widow but have a wonderful daughter and three beautiful grandchildren who are mostly the subjects of my layouts. 

I have been scrapping for over ten years now. I discovered scrapbooking when I was on holiday in America when my first Grandchild was about a year old and my style has changed many times over the years.  I am very lucky to have my own craft room and because I am now retired, I can scrap all day and not have to clear everything away!

I have always been involved with craft in some form – sewing, cross-stitch, cards, altered art (I love Tim Holtz!) but seem to return to scrapbooking every time.  My best buy a few years ago was my Craft Robo and this has helped me with titles and images on many occasions….I now have a Cameo too which means I can now cut 12x12 files!!

I very much enjoy entering challenges because they give me the starting point for a layout, whether it’s a sketch or other criteria……..although the end result doesn’t always reflect the original design or intention! LOL

I don’t know what I would do now if I didn’t scrap!!!

I was very pleased to be asked to be GDT this month and hope that my layout might give you some inspiration for this months challenge!
Here's Jackie's layout:
