Challenge #199.....

 We are super excited to present you with our next set of challenges!!!  Here we go!

Challenge #199A: Golden Years by David Bowie (Tribute to "A Knight's Tale")
This time we are paying tribute to the movie "A Knight's Tale," by featuring the movie "Golden Years" by David Bowie.  If you haven't seen this movie, it's a great love story starring the late, great Heath Ledger.  One of the things I loved most about it, was their bold use of obviously non-period music - so cool!  Check out the scene in the video below...

The lyrics are really awesome for scrapping.  Check them out by clicking on the tab at the top of the page.

I hope you enjoy the design team layouts for "Golden Years..."

Michael and I were on a getaway weekend and saw this group of adventurous souls just off the coast of Lake Superior. It was such a cool scene, I had to take some pics, and this song gave me the perfect excuse to scrap them!

Lila is our new sweetheart dog, she was supposed to stay for a couple weeks until her breeder gets well again. But she really step right in our life and hearts. Now she will stay with us.

The lyric "never look back - walk tall - act fine" touched me.  I want Anne to feel that way!  (This picture was taken on her 9th birthday.)

The first night after the flight from Europe to North America is always short. But that doesn't bother me at all, saying hello to a brand new day always worth it.

I couldn't help but think about this particular photo from Disney World with the lyrics I picked.  It is a place you feel young, but it's very warm!

Challenge #199B Prompt: 
Do you recall a movie where the music really moved you? Scrap about the music and/or the movie. (Thanks to Sharon for this prompt!)

Here are the design team layouts for "Movie Music..."

One of my favorite actresses is Audrey Hepburn, and one of my favorite movies of hers is "Two for the Road," a movie depicting a couple's relationship over the span of 12 years.  I think the reason why I love the movie so much is the amazing, bittersweet, and beautiful musical score by Henry Mancini.  The music is what made the movie so perfect for me!

My favorite movie of all time is Harold and Maude, and one of the things I love about the movie is the musical score, which is all by Cat Stevens.  This layout is inspired by one of the songs called "If you Want to Sing Out, Sing Out." 

Now it's Your Turn!
What inspires you about "Golden Years"? Show us in a scrapbook layout, art journal page, or anything else you are inspired to create!

How about the prompt? What movie's music inspired you?  We want to know!
