A whiter shade of pale.


The Cheeky Challenge theme this week at June's Dezinaworld is...
Whiter shade of pale.

The first thing that flew into my thoughts was the song of that name
A whiter shade of pale, sung by  Procol Harum.
This was a firm favourite back in the day and can still evoke loads of happy memories if  we [ me and my OH] hear it played on on the media,needless to say we have our own copy .



I had to hand this background in my journal, but pale images were being hard to imagine, so after a photo was taken , I was off into my digital mode, to create my own version here where hopefully the dove would bring a message that would bring a bit of colour to her cheeks.
Using images from  favourite sources. Dezinaworld  and Mischief Circus as well a few of my own. and all assembled in my Craft Studio.




 I have just seen that the girls and Linda the Guest Hostess at
have announced the new theme for April which is
For the Record.........Inspired by a Song
Yes,a song most definitely inspired me for this page.

Thank you for stopping by to see what I have been making today.
 Your comments are always appreciated.
