Kraft + Sheet Music - July Challenge

Isn't this pretty?  There is a lot of choice here for your inspiration - as long as you have some sheet music included...

I took inspiration from the prettiness, the roses and the hearts... and of course the sheet music - in the form of a stencil with paste - a few little charms and some little handmade music scrolls.

Hush Little Baby

 Some close ups... I used a CWS music stencil, some gorgeous Prima resin hearts and flowers, a Blue Fern chippie, some muslin - and Thickers for my title, with some old Basic Gray stickers. Oh, and I bordered my page with some yummy Riddersholm papers!

 (and I forgot to lighten this up a bit - not much sun today... and I have run out of time - for a change!)

My beautiful little Breeanna... who didn't like to sleep much!  Most days she was awake, and miserable... I found it so hard to get her to relax and sleep. 
One Monday night, I was beside myself, and her crying was getting me really upset. Dave used to be gone from 8am til 10pm on Mondays during this time - and my days were very long with my new baby! 
In desperation at around 7pm, I turned some music on - and UP!!!!
I will never forget, that when she actually took a breath, she heard the music, she tensed - and then immediately relaxed and fell asleep!!!!
So, new routine found!
I held her and we listened to music until she fell asleep... and I have Madonna to thank for Material Girl - Bree's favourite track! I did this for 9 months... and she got heavier and heavier - time for a new routine then - it was called 'controlled crying"... but that's another story!

Great challenge Sandra!
Thanks for looking!
