With A Song in My Heart

Gather your dreams




Well, it all started when I created an arrangement of white roses,

and you don't have to ask me twice to join a texture challenge using one of Kim Klassen's textures.

The texture challenge this week was using Yesteryear by the amazing Kim Klassen.  She is hosting another Texture Tuesdays.

Finally, I added a bit of a crop, sheet music and words to be inspired by.

Although I shared this one on  yesterday's post, I wanted to share how it evolved.

Speaking of yesteryear, how about a little Doris Day singing With A Song in My Heart.
