Scrapping The Music Takes on The Stray Cats and More...

 With the September 1st challenges, we are excited to introduce two new design team members at Scrapping The Music - Jessica Sporn and Herma!  They are both regular participants and members of our Hall of Fame.  Jessica is an awesome mixed media artist and painter; and Herma is the queen of upcycling and using thrifty techniques to create beautiful layouts.  We are thrilled to have both of them joining us!

The new set of challenges are super fun! The song we are paying tribute to this time is "Stray Cat Strut" by the Stray Cats!  Here's what I came up with...

My boys Willie and Johnny are kings of napping!  They've never chased a mouse around as far as I know; but I do have to admit, they enjoy chasing the occasional bug! The little mouse skiing in the bottom right corner is my favorite part of this layout.  I found him in a thrifted children's book.  Ha.


 Our prompt this time is to scrap a song that reflects an event in your life...

The journaling reads: "When we first got together I sent you this song in an email, and it became our song."  The lyrics fit us so perfectly.  I still love that song.

Come on over and play along with us!  We'd love to have you!  Click here to go to the challenge!

Oh- I LOVE these! I often "sneak" lyrics to songs into my art journaling. I love the idea of devoting pages to them, full on.
