Sooo here I sit, with some friends in the recording studio - in the sound booth, putting some final touches on our upcoming CD release (see Fife and Drum). I have to say, I'm pretty excited about it. I figured I'd get a head start on my post, so all I have to do is photograph and insert pics when I get home.
Anyway - on the theme of music, my niece Sohpia just turned 7 and got her first CD walkman for her birthday, and her mom mentioned that she could use some more music. I wanted to participate in the PTI blog hop, as well as Lauren's challenge for her challenge DT call...so here we go.
I had gotten the Music Makeover template way back when, and haven't used in a while, so I got working. I made Sophia 4 CD's with all sorts of mixed music. Obviously 4 CD's aren't going to fit into one template (you can fit 2 slim cases in each box). So I decided to make a double version. I made two of the templates using new leaf CS from PTI, and then I cut a piece of vintage cream cs to hold them all together - scored in the middle, so it would fold open like a book. I then went on the computer and created lists for each of the CD's. I made a little booklet inside so she can refer to it to see what she's listening to.
I have a VERY varied taste in music, so I tried to pass that along to her, but I of course left out some of the things that I like that may not be appropriate due to her age ;).
Sophia to me, is a very earthy kind of kid, and part of Lauren's challenge was to base your project on the packaging of a Bath and Body Works product. I chose to base mine off of the Green Tea and Cucumber, and it paired perfectly with Pine's Beyond Basic Borders set.
So here's my project - hope you like it :)
see how it opens...
Volumes one and two, don't you love it? Like a real boxed set ;)
all closures are done with velcro :)
So tell me - what's YOUR favorite type of music?? I love to hear what everyone is into!
