FAREWELL FOR NOW

It is a hard thing to say and even harder to have to do but due to a lack of interest in this blog it has been decided that it will cease posting and challenges.
We feel that the idea for here is great so perhaps a bit of a hiatus may be what is needed, who knows, and then perhaps we can see if interest can again be reignited.
On behalf of the Creative team and myself I would like to thanks everyone who has participated in our past challenges, we appreciate your contribution.
So farewell for now from Mary, Kim and myself, Annette xo

Christmas Carols

Well anyone who knows me knows that Christmas is my time of the year and especially the singing of carols.......particularily really loudly at my workplace.
So the Carol I chose to use is Santa Claus is coming to town. It so suits this Santa pic of my son Shaun, out of all the ones that have been taken this is by far my absolute fav.


 I adore the look on his face, so intense and serious, how it is taken without him being on Santas knee and from a side angle.

Used gorgeous Kaisercraft Turtle Dove pp, flowers (blue), rhinestones, sparklets and chippie, Bo Bunny brads, homemade bottle top (image from the Graphic Fairy) Mesh ribbon from Craft Queen and gorgeous gardenia flower from my2angels.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy New Year full of happiness, love and all you could ask for.

Unfortunately this will be my last post for Scrap that Song, I have decided to step down from the CT. I am sure that it will be back bigger and stronger in the New Year and thank everyone who has supported the blog now and hopefully in the future.

Hugs and love

Memories

WOW,

Can you believe that is is nearly the end of November?
Where has 2012 gone?
I swear it feels like I have only just bought Christmas presents and here we are again at that joyous but expensive time of year.
My humble apologies for being such an absent entity of late but I have been snowed under with uni and work and it seems that my children's extracurricular activities list grows every day.

The song that I have picked for one that reminds me of something is one that is humble. There are so many songs to pick from and it really is hard to pinpoint particular songs to everyday moments.

Here is my song - HOME by Chris Daughtry

 

 It really scares me that one day the kids will leave home but I always want them to remember that no matter how far they travel that they can always come home.

 Here is my LO -


I have used some fantastic mixed media techniques that I have acquired by purchasing the subscription to the monthly mixed media kit from Blue Bazaar - it has forced me to step out of my comfort zone and try something new which scares me most of the time.

You have just over a week to get your LO's linked and I would love to see your memories on paper.
For more info please pay a visit to my very neglected blog :)

Till then
Cheers and happy scrapping

Flashback

Well how great is our challenge for this month, a song that reminds you of a place, person or time in your life. This song "Coco Jambo by Mr President" always takes me back to Port Macquarie while I was on holidays in the late 1990's, perfect evening, driving around lost, laughing, magic.


The lyrics "pick me up, put me down, put my feet back on the ground" are just perfect also for this pic of me parasailing.
Used some gorgeous Twiddleybits chippies, embellies from my2angels, chippy beachhut from thechipchopshop, netting, lace from miss kim, washi tape from Craft Queen.

So what is your song that transports you can't wait to see.
Hugs and love Annette x

That is a awesome layout Miss Annette

For my take on this challenge I have chosen a Eagles Song "Take it to the Limit" . The Eagles always bring back good memories of my younger days, driving around belting out the songs "very badly" , but loving life and having a blast. The Eagles is also one of my hubbies favourite bands , so this is a picture of us at a fancy dress party ( I went as a gyprocker) I have added the lyrics and a ticket from one of the Eagles Concerts we went to in the Amy Tangerine pocket behind the photo



so what song bring back a memory for you or reminds you of a person/place/time in your life ? We would love you to share it with us

I'm spinning around

Our challenge for November is to scrap a song that reminds you of something.
Always amazing how music can evoke a memory whether it is sentimental,romantic,funny or just a place or time in your life.Do you have a song that does that?Do you have a "theme" song for yourself? Is there a song that drives you crazy?(personally I hate Jolene by Dolly Parton as people always think that's my name).
 
 
 

Kylie's song always makes me think of the teacups ride at Disneyland.My father went there in 1959 and kept raving about it so I took my daughter,aged 11 in 1997.We had a wonderful time turning the centre wheel in the teacups and making ourselves dizzy.As this song came out around the same time I always think of it.

The teacup paper and co-ordinating papers from American Crafts was ideal for this layout as was the Twiddlybits mini filigrees.The photo is taken in 1959 from one of Dad's slides.
Have fun recalling a song that reminds you of a special time! Julene

It's definately a long way to the top

Let's climb to the top of Mount Kosciuszko, yeah sounds great, until you realise how high it is and how long it takes. We walked for 2km and still had another 4km to go, no thanks.

Used a bit of everything on this page, Bo Bunny, Kaiser, Graphic 45, Rebekkah Erickson, Collections Butterflies and lots of distressing, inking and stamping.

So what is your long way to the top moment, would love you to share, hugs and love Annette x
