Ok, Much better right




I just knew I didn't feel right about it. A lot happier now.
Ahhh antique music paper, is there anything you cant fix?!?







Ps - Im not sure how I conned her, but thank you Betharoo for helping me weed!!!!!

PPs - While Im at it, Thank you Beth for making me a rolled rose.

PPPS - Ok so they seem simple, but Yes I suck at rolled roses — no Im not entirely sure how its possible either.

Oh wow, that has made a wonderful difference to the layout, that folded music paper is divine, isn't it great having such wonderful friends to help weed.

How did you go with the ribbon/button swap numbers. Melxx

Amazing the difference a bit of pleated paper can make! Love the addition, it really finishes off the LO. Gorgeous pic too, btw.

And rolled roses... my first attempts were abysmal. If you're not happy, persevere. I found my smaller ones always look better than my big ones. And they look better when the starting-off-spiral is different widths (don't space the lines evenly). Ummm, and a bit of squishing and distressing helps make *everything* look better, LOL! Another thing you can try is cut the spiral using wavy-edge scissors. Or just practise. Ha ha... (says the expert in rolled roses - NOT!)
