Love is Friendship set to Music

So here is my page for Challenge 29 over at Punky Scraps. This challenge was a recipe challenge. We had to use canvas, chipboard, 3 staples, a b&w photo, made is monochromatic, and use this to be inspired by
I used the September Passages kit from Scraps of Darkness. My page is titled 'Love is Friendship set to Music' which is a quote by E. Joseph Cossman.
I had an idea of how I want the page to look and I needed a specific circle punch that I did not have. I figured it wouldn't hurt to check out Hobby Lobby and Joanns. Unfortunately I could not find it and even though I had seen it at Michaels  I did not feel like driving 20 minutes to get there ( I can be crazy lazy sometimes). So I turned to my cricut and gypsy which I seriously don't use as much as I should. I found a design that wasn't actually similar but would work. However I screwed up by not letter the page dry enough before I put it in cutter. I had used Distress stains and inks on the paper to slightly change the color and because of that (and also the blade itself had gotten pretty dull) the design didn't cut right. When I tried to take the paper off the mat it started to break apart. I was pretty dismayed until I realized that putting the pieces together looked pretty darn cool. So I went with it and I seriously love how it turned out. Sometimes the best things happen through mistakes!
Here are the 3 staples
The chipboard, canvas (well I think these flowers are made out of canvas, it seemed like it. Honestly this was the closest thing I had to canvas)
Here is a closeup of the pin that Mandy (aka Craftysprinkles) made
This last picture is of the prima packaging that is oh so cool and fit so well with this kit. I really think I am going to end up using all the packaging. I inked it with Distress stains and mists. I also used some Vintage Photo ink around the edges of the photo to add interest.
I used a brown monochromatic color scheme. The butterflies and music notes are the inspiration I received from the image.

I hope you guys will play along at Punky Scraps! Remember to link up in order to win a super fabulous prize from Little Yellow House Kits!!!
