Layout Share

I am trying to participate in a 6-week challenge at Scrapbook Deals 4 U. I actually got the first week completed and I hope to be able to find time to continue! It's a Real Life challenge and each week there is a challenge based on a TV show. This first challenge was based on American Idol. We had to showcase 1 person (no other people allowed in the photo) and the title had to be a song that was released the year that person was born. I used the song If You Could Read My Mind by Gordon Lightfoot. Never even heard it, LOL!!! This is a rare layout for me...because it's about me! There is hidden journaling under the tag which is tucked under the photo. All paper is from the gorgeous Color Me Daisy April Kit which featured Lily Bee Design papers.



I used my Cricut for all the flowers and had fun layering them with some buttons.




Also cut this butterfly with my Cricut. I just picked up all sorts of bling by Queen & Co. at a recent scrap expo. First time I opened the blue bling!!



This week the challenge is based on the TV Friends and I have to use 6 photos on my layout! Woah, that will be a challenge!! Thanks for stopping by!

What a beautiful layout! And I just love the song you chose...but I haven't heard it either....lol! Of course, I'm so bad about not recognizing song titles. If I actually heard the song, I would probably go "Ohhhh, yeah, I remember THAT song. Hmmm, didn't know that was the name of it." lol!

Can't wait to see your "Friends" layout!
