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

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
