A RAK To Celebrate My Big News!!!

I am so excited --- I have been chosen to be part of the design team at the Scrapping The Music Challenge Blog!!! Music and Scrapbooking are two of my passions in life, and to be able to combine the two and be part of this fabulous team is really exciting! In case you're not familiar with it - Scrapping The Music is a website that posts a different song every Sunday and challenges you to create a layout or other art project using the song as inspiration. It's a lot of fun, and what I really love is the wide variety of music they post. No matter what kind of music you like, you are likely to find some inspiration at the Scrappin The Music site! There are usually weekly sponsors too, so you've got a chance of winning a fun scrappy prize! I hope you will stop by and play along with us! The song for this week is called "Turn it Up" by Aaron Lines. This is my layout that was inspired by the song.

So, in celebration of this exciting turning point in my life - I'd like to give away a little RAK - it's something that combines scrapbooking and music - these tags from the cool Etsy shop Shabby Chic Crafts.

So leave me a comment and I will enter your name in the drawing for these tags. I'd love to hear something about how music inspires you - in scrapbooking or another part of your life. Who's your favorite band? What's your favorite lyric? What music do you listen to when you're creating? You have until this coming Saturday at midnight (4/12). I will do a random drawing from the comments and post the winner on Sunday night.

Have a great week everyone!

Congratulations! I love country music that I can sing along with. Trisha Yearwood's Cowboy song is my fav at the moment.

You'll never hear me knocking an old pair of boots
A man who wears his Wranglers for a Sunday suit
The kind that ain't afraid to get dirt on his hands
Who brings you fresh daisies in a coffee can
I like a man to ride me around pickup style
He'll tip his hat and wink at me and shoot me a smile
He'll take me two-stepin at the honky tonk
That kind of man ain't hard to want

Cause cowboys are my weakness
Give me some down home rugged sweetness
A little bit of outlaw a little bit of Jesus
Cowboys are my weakness

I love to hear my name the sound of southern drawl
A man who takes his time - you know what I mean ya'll
He gets a little rowdy a little out of hand
But when he's around your mama he says yes mam'm
A doer not a talker he's tried and he's true
[ Cowboys Are My Weakness lyrics found on ]
The salt of the earth but if he's sweet on you
He'll treat you like you're the only woman alive
Yea high up in the saddle is one hell of a ride

Cause cowboys are my weakness
Give me some down home rugged sweetness
A little bit of outlaw a little bit of Jesus
Cowboys are my weakness

I wanna be the lady he loves with all his heart and soul
I wanna be the lady he keeps warm when the nights get cold

Yea cowboys are my weakness
Give me some down home rugged sweetness
A little bit of outlaw a little bit of Jesus
Lord help me Jesus
Cowboys are my weakness

Yea they're my weakness

Um hum

Congratz on your DT position! I love music while I scrap. I'm not very consistent though.

I love all kinds of music. I can literally go from Metallica to Jack Johnson... it's all about the rhythm.
