And now....

First, I would like to thank our sponsor for February - Design Team Member Linda Phinney (aka Phinner). She has provided the following awesome prize!!!

Here's what Linda has to say about her prize:
We would love to have you play along with us in February at Scrapping the Music!

Everyone who participates in the challenges in the month of February will be included in the drawing for this sweet little girl, - a 2.5X3.5 inch ACEO reproduction on a block from the Danita Art etsy shop. You'll also receive some other fun scrappy goodness!
We can't wait to see how you interpret the upcoming lyrics!

Are you ready for our first February challenge???

Oh my goodness we have a catchy little number for you this week! It's "Hey Soul Sister" by Train! Check out the video below...

This is one of those songs that it's hard to stop singing! Check out the lyrics by clicking on the tab at the top of the blog. We hope you are as inspired as we were!

Here are the design team's layouts for "Hey Soul Sister..."

She's my Soul Sister! Really for true!!! : .)

Whether it's something good, bad, or just in between...I fill up Linda's Inbox...probably daily...thanks, my friend, Linda!

The subject of my layout is the sisterhood of my mother and aunt, my sister and me and my daughters and how different they are. Not quite sure that we are all soulsisters *smile*

My favorite lyric in the song is "Ain't that Mister Mister on the radio?" It's just so random and quirky! This photo of my sweet hubby Michael and his dad Stan seemed the perfect match for the lyric. There they are - Mister Rydell and Mister Rydell. So alike inside and out!


What a great song! Taking my cue from Linda and Patricia, I really wanted to let my Scrapping the Music "soul sisters" know how much they mean to me! Thank you all!!!!

My best scrappy friend, I loved the idea to scrap this theme...

"Watching You"- check out my blog for more close up pictures!
