08/23/13 - SIWAS: "...Country Road"

Hey there!
Just wanted to  let you know that "Scrap It With a Song" has a new challenge up!
The song pick this week is:
"Take Me Home Country Road" by John Denver
Had a lot of trouble w/ this one as I was taking the title and lyrics of the song to literal.
Finally I stopped and just tried to think what did the song make me think of? Finally the answer came: the outdoors!
Once that was decided I came up w/ this:
 "Front Yard View"
Picture dates: 8/24/12 & 5/28/12
No journaling on this one. Just a couple of pictures that I took in our front yard that I really like!
The first picture is my doggie, Ivanna, my daughter, Madison, and her kitty, Panini, just hanging out on our lawn.  The second is of Ivanna and me hanging out on our porch.  Both pictures where taken from the point of view that you can see the street in front of our house, so that helps tie in the song a little: street = road.

The BG paper is one I would normally shy away from because it is a "scenery" page. But I decided to just have fun w/ it! Besides adding a 6x6 piece of patterned paper to anchor my pictures I just added a few nature embellies to liven up the page. The nature stickers all came from an Echo Park sticker sheet I have had in my stash for about a year and never touched. It is so cute but I think I was just too afraid to use it! Funny how that happens...LOL!
Make sure you stop by and see what the other DT members created and hopefully you will be inspired to share something w/ us!
You have until August 31, 2013.
Hope to see you there!
