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

It's a long way to the top

October's theme song is AC/DC's song "It's a long way to the top"
 You can interpret this many different ways, but it reminded me of our climb in the Eiffel Tower.We thought it would never end!When you reach the observation deck and look down,there is an overwhelming urge to jump,or is it just called vertigo? On my layout I've used the title with arrows to demonstrate the climb up.
Hope to see your inspirational layouts soon. Have fun!!! Julene

Wow great take Julene,
My layout is also a travel page. This statue was in a beautiful village in France and you could walk up inside the statue , up a VERY narrow, steep staircase. Under the statue's arm was a little window and the view was amazing.

Looking forward to seeing everyone's spin on this  month's challenge
