Here is my oldest son Aaron a few years ago, he was 13 yrs old in this photo.. that year in school, they had a young male teachers aid that got the whole class interested in music and tought them all how to play different instruments. My son learned how to play the guitar.. He loved it..
Here's a close up of the title.. coming up with the title idea took me two whole days.. I actually had to go and research the internet on how a piano keyboard looked like...LOL
The keyboard is actually pieced together using two different carts. Locker talk for the base and George for the key cutouts.
My son... the little tags on the side of the photo read "ROCK ON LITTLE DUDE!".. I remember that quote from Keanu Reeve's in the movie "Bill and Ted's Greatest Adventures!"..(god! how old am I?)..LOL
I wanted to put my new Indie cart to good use and so I seen the little cassette cut and I knew I had to use it some how.. although, my son doesn't even know what that is...he's CD generation..LOL
I actually added a few more embellishments after I had already made this post, so thats why the photo of the whole layout is a bit different. It just seemed to be missing something..LOL as if thats possible with all the stuff I always clutter a layout with..LOL :O)
