but it is my chief duty to accomplish small
tasks as if they were great and noble."

Dueling Darlings May Challenge

The Dueling Darlings May Challenge was hosted by Paola for the Dazzlers and Judy for the Divas.

The theme was:  Music and we were instructed as follows:

If you could dedicate a song to someone in your life ,
what would your song choice be, and to whom will you dedicate it and why? 

Paola treated us to a wonderful kit of goodies which included:

*Stamps :* Gift Of Music /D.Morgan  by: Stamps Happens Inc.;
Violin/Music scroll & Angel w/Instrument : Unknown;
Sentiments by : Cling Stamps Co. # 557133
*Accessories :*
Designer Papers : * Up,Up & Away (Doodle Bug Design); *Bella Boutique Stack (DCWV) ; * SU Double D/P x 2 ; *Elementary Pianoforte Music Examination (from a real Conservatory of Music book)
*Ribbon : barely banana grosgrain from SU
*Virtuoso Music Die in black and in white
(Memory Box ; *Viviene Butterfly (Music Box) ;
*Assorted gems and pearls in a variety of shape/sizes

As far as a song goes, right now the song I play a lot and sing along with is "Even If" by Kutless and it helps me through the day.  

Thanks for stopping by and please be sure to check out all the Dueling Darlings creations.  See my sidebar for their blogs.
