Craft Barn Challenge 10: Passion and Music

I've backdated this post because I have other memes through Wednesday, and, since it was already finished, I wanted to get it posted.  I also didn't want to confuse any of my regular T(ea) crowd by posting later the same day and have them wonder where to find the link for T Stands For Tuesday. 

Having said all that, Craft Barn's 10th lyrics and/or quotes challenge is to use the words Passion and/or Music, and of course, I had to go with a quote about music.

Although there are many quotes that pertain to music, this one by Albert Schweitzer caught my eye.

Even Bleubeard approved.

In case you can't read it, the quote is: "The only escape from the miseries of life are music and cats.

This page was especially difficult to scan because these are hard plastic music notes I found in my stash.  They have little pegs on the back, much like tiny (albeit very hard) pop dots, that cause them to set above the background.

I used the music bracket to point to the number 10, which signifies this is Craft Barn's 10th challenge.

Materials I used for this monochromatic challenge page include my usual file folder substrate, a sheet of vintage music, two plastic music notes, a piece of gifted washi tape, and a scanned drawing of Bleubeard.

Thanks to everyone who left such kind comments during the last challenge.  Although I'm having internet problems, I managed to visit everyone again for the ninth challenge.  However, as I've stated before, I am not on Facebook, Flickr, or G+, so I'm unable to leave comments to those of you who use these other media sites.

Excellent Elizabeth. I totally love the simplicity of it and the scanned picture of Bluebeard is purrfect of course. I like that quote and thin the the notes are fab. Have a lovely day :o)

Love this page, but I just love everything to do with music and a cat is always a bonus. :) Started on my first Journal 52 pages and had great fun.

That's a perfect quote for you and your piece! I like how you always feature the number of the challenge--very creative to use the music bracket to point to the number!
