Berry71Bleu May Challenge and Leaky Shed Studios Reveal!

Happy Monday and I hope all the Moms had a wonderful Mother's Day!
Today I want to share with you my project created for the Berry71Bleu May Challenge: Simple Pleasures.
This is also my first official project for Leaky Shed Studios and their musical notes chipboard fit in perfectly with my "Simple Pleasure"!

My simple pleasure is singing in the car. I have an awful singing voice but,oh,how I love to sing loud and strong anyway. Fortunately, God graced me with a child that sings like an angel and together we belt out Broadway and Disney songs as we make our way down the road. 
The gorgeous paper is from one of our generous sponsors, 7 Dots Studio. In the circles, I wrote the names of some of our favorite tunes.

I made all the sheet music flowers on the page and added bling from our sponsor, Molossi. to the centers and scattered on the page. I used the new Marion Smith Bloom tool and was inspired by this tute for the ruffled flowers. I punched leaves from a printed word strip from our sponsor, Dark Room Door, and colored them with gelatos. See my tute on the small blooms here.

I want to call some attention to the fabulous Leaky Shed Studio chipboard on my page. I am so impressed with the weight and quality of details to these chippies. I put them through a lot of heat and mediums and they held up perfectly.

I used Wow! copper embossing powder and rubbed patina Rub n' Buff all over. I then added Ranger's crackle medium for some extra texture.

For the larger note chippies,first I colored them with blue and green gelatos. Then I rubbed in gold gelato and misted with Heidi Swapp and Lindy's Stamp Gang mists.
