LESSology #40 and Our Beautiful World - Music

It's been too long since I've played along with LESSology, though when I saw 'Travelogue' that's a great excuse to get another page done of my Trip album!
Click to go to Challenge #40
My up cycle are these vintage Asian book print papers...


You can find the challenge HERE
ANother Challenge I haven't played along with for a long time is
and this week its
I managed this photo of Paige a couple of weekends ago after she got out of the car with her violin case to go in early for a final rehearsal for a concert later that afternoon. 
Paige loves her violin and has been playing for 11yrs now.  She still goes in twice a week for 2-3 hours to keep practicing.  I shouted out to her to turn, and 'snap' - got this pic!
Makes me smile....
Last Sunday afternoon I had the privilege to attend an art exhibition of a wonderful local landscape.... tulip farm.  The artist sold painting after painting.... so quickly!
After my friend Wendy and I left, it was dusk and I managed to snap the nearby Dutch Iris field in front of where the car was parked

Remembering Vincent

Here's a link here on this blog about this back to 2008

Love the use of your book paper on your divided sleeve page and the paintings and your pics are devine. Great one of Paige too. Scrolling down, I love all of your creations especially the one of that lost starling.....great pics. AND no, that's not a ballerina on my 21st cake.......just some scrolly thingy with a 21 on it.

Ooh, what a great post, Mandy! I LOVE seeing all your photos! Your daughter with her violin case is beyond precious, and your flower fields are simply amazing. So, so fun to see that artist's take on them. And I LOVE your travel page for Lessology! So cool how you used the Chinese book pages, and I seriously love the twine tied coins you added, too!
