The May challenge for Simple Scrapper is to make a page with lyrics on it.
Here's the deal, I always have at least one song stuck in my head, and because of that, lyrics usually don't make it onto my scrapbook pages. And by usually, I mean never. I don't need to have more songs stuck in my head! But perhaps precisely because I always have music stuck in my head I should make layouts with lyrics.
It turns out that having a couple of weeks to think over what song to use causes a LOT of songs to roll around up there, like a constant stream of competing music. Which is what inspired a night of the musical Chicago and my nowadays post. I also made a 40s music lyrics page for my dad's birthday, but I'm not using that either (nor is it posted).
THIS is my choice of song: Lucky. It comes on my pandora at work all the time. And I sing. Out loud. Every time. In harmony with the singers. Whether my door open or closed. It's very in-the-moment.
...As is my page. Gosh, I love a good rainbow.
Materials: Paper from American Crafts (most of the colors), Basic Grey (red), American Crafts (neutral background) and before 2008 (papers can be from a year, right?); Brad from Oxford/Basic Grey, Beetle Black Doodle Twine by Doodlebug Designs, Amy Tangerine Thickers, Bella BLVD alphabet stickers; Template from Simple Scrapper (Premium Membership)
P.S. It's really bothering me that the photo of my layout above looks tilted. Oh well! This isn't the place for my perfectionism. I'm supposed to be practicing self-kindness and letting it go. (Eek! Not my specialty.) Instead, I'm going to post some pretty pictures of the details. Enjoy the pictures! (and the song, which might now be stuck in your head!)
