Alpha Challenge 'B'

The Alpha Challenge over at The Craft Barn is the letter 'B'.  It had to be 'Blues'.


This is quite a straightforward page showcasing some of the blues greats.  Magic Slim is not as well known as the others but I saw him at a festival a few years ago and he is amazing!  Real true blues music!  The background is Salty Ocean and Faded Jeans Distress Inks blending over clear embossed music notes.  The letters are Cuttlebug and the treble clef is a die cut my friend Marleine gave me.  The pictures are various album covers from the internet.  We have loads of pictures we could have used but it was easier to download them cause they were already the right size.  Please pop over to The Craft Barn to see all the wonderful pages.  I am off to Artstamps show at Newbury tomorrow, I can't wait!  Whatever you are doing, have a fabulous time!  Thank you for visiting, I am so grateful!  Take care.  Christine xx
