Kraft+ DT February 2018 - Thank you for the music

Hello again Scrappy Friends, welcome; today I'm sharing a DT post for 
The challenge is to be inspired by anything related to ABBA.
I absolutely loved the graphic designed by the Uber talented Amanda Hall and had a lovely time strolling down memory lane, listening to all the Abba songs.   
I finally settled on “Thank you for the music” as it seemed to fit so well with my photo.
I used 7 Dots, “Paint Chips” paper to create the layers, adding some stamping and paint splashes.  Love that square stamp, it’s by Carabelle Studio  “Les Geometriks”   The patterned paper and the stamp are available from SCRAP MATRIX at Victor Harbour.  They are proud sponsors of Kraft+. 
The little wooden birds remind me of the way the children all come running when the food is served.  They are from Studio Calico, as are the cork chevrons.  
The flair is from Funky Flairs. It's a bit hard to read but it says "we are all meant to shine"
The enamel dots are from Doodlebug (yellow) and Prima (green)
Inspired again by Amanda's graphics, I made the acetate letters and coloured them with alcohol inks.

The journalling is on the back of the page and it reads:-
I was lucky enough to capture of photo of you with most of your cousins in the park recently. The big kids play so well together, chatting, chirping, laughing and just occasionally disagreeing.  They are fascinated by you and very gentle with you; they enjoy watching you learn and are delighted if they get you to smile at them.  The sounds of childhood are like music to my ears; a joyful sound which seems to signal hope for the future.
