Scrapping the Music, Challenge 192 "Every Time We Touch," and a Giveaway

This week's song at Scrapping the Music is Every Time We Touch" by Cascada.  It is also from the movie "Final Destiny."

Not every song is going to really inspire me and make me want to create something based on what the song means.  Whether it's a great song or not...sometimes just nothing comes to me.  But what I love about using songs as inspiration is I can still use some of the lyrics as a jumping start for a layout.  For instance, when I heard the lyrics "Your heart is My Sky" from this week's song, I thought, I could never have thought of beautiful words to express how big someone's heart is.  Just loved it.

So I used pictures from my daughter's Valentine's school party.  I was so happy I could share this moment with her.  She was giddy with excitement as we went around giving out her Valentine's to her friends.  And she was giddy when she got her goody bags loaded full of Valentine's from her friends.  One time, she looked around for me, and gave me the biggest smile...she just lit up the whole room. 

Her heart really is my sky...she's the sweetest little thing ever...
I can't thank all my new scrap friends enough for encouraging me and sharing your lives and scrap work with me.  I know there are so many blogs out there, but to have a little circle of friends is wonderful.  I want to offer a giveaway for one of my blog friends.  Please be sure to leave a comment on this post and be a follower of my blog.  I'll pick a winner on Friday, so remember to check back.
 I love these Jenni Bowlin stamps, but I don't need two sets.  Great for stamping to use as a journaling spot.  I've even stamped, embossed, cut out and used it to layer on top of.  My Mind's Eye buttons and banners, Maya Road fabric flowers, and Smash labels (which are great for Project Life).    

Pin It!
