The Sisterhood of Crafters - Lots of Layers

Good Day All!
It's time once again for a fun challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters!
I'm honored to be your hostess today and our theme is


This was a fun challenge for me since I'm more of a 'layers' type crafter than a 'CAS' crafter!  LOL!  Here's what I've created to share with you today . . .

My image is from a set of vintage prints I purchased at the Adventures in Stamping convention several years ago here in Akron, Ohio.  Isn't it adorable?  How sweet that the doggie is singing along while she plays the piano ... and of course the cat couldn't be left out so, he's perched himself atop the piano! 

Here are a couple close ups for a better view of the details.
You can click on either picture to enlarge more.

and of course, a peek at the inside!

I hope you'll come play along in our challenge!  And for more inspiration, please check out what my 'Sistahs' and Step Sistahs have created!  I'm sure they would love it if you took a moment to visit their blogs and leave them a comment.
