Book of Love-Kim

 Morning beautiful people...my turn for a post this sunny Tuesday.
So...almost half way through September....scary how fast time goes as you get a little older.
 
   So my song choice this month was 'The Book of Love' by Peter Gabriel. If you are/where a 'Scrubs' fan you would have heard this song on the last episode...sob!
 I first heard this song at the beginning of this year, my DD had put it on her iTunes and another of my DD's would often play it down in my scraproom. It sort of got stuck in my head. I really love the instrumental feel of this song, makes me feel a tad emotional....
 When I looked closely at the lyrics I wasn't sure about my choice (at first )...The book of love is long and boring???...hmmm....it didn't sound very nice, even thou it's sort of true.
Then as I scrolled down I seen the line....
   I love it when you read to me....caught my eye....
Perfect!!!
 Having had 8* children my hubby and I have read many, many bedtime stories to our babies over the years, some we knew so well we just had to turn the pages and not actually read. Often we would fall asleep with them all snuggled, (they are like big sleeping tablets, sometimes).
 It's the little moments that we treasure and scrapping this special cuddle time is very precious, as I know there will come a time they won't ask for stories anymore.

{Love it when you read to me}

I love texture paste ATM
 So thanks for stopping bye, hope that you are TOTALLY  inspired to use one of our AWESOME SONGS  to get creative and SCRAP THAT SONG.
 Make sure you use Mr Linky in the side panel to link your layout so the DT can see what you have come up with and be in the running for some very awesome prizes....from our sponsors.
                                         
                                                   
Don't Forget to come back later in the week to see what Mary has for you.

Keep Happy
