12/29/12 - Scrap It W/ A Song Christmas Challenge

Hi there!

I know I haven't been around much but I wanted to stop in and share a layout I created for a challenge going on over at the Scrap It With A Song blog.

The current challenge is to use your favorite Christmas Song as inspiration for your layout.
My favorite Christmas Song is "Last Christmas" by Wham.
I know, I know, it's a weird favorite, but what can I say...I like it!
What's even weirder is I hate Christmas Music because to me it's so depressing and yet my favorite song is one about getting your heart broken...WTHeck! LOL!
I'll admit I had a little bit of trouble using it on a page.  It took awhile before I figured out how to use it, but I finally did it!
Here it is:
"Last Christmas"
Journaling: "Because we inherited her at the ripe old age of 10 every Christmas
we worry if this will be Ivanna's..."
(Last Christmas)
I realize the journaling is a bit morbid but my doggie is old so it is a real worry we have. :0(

I like the page because it doesn't use too much of the traditional Christmas colors on it, I used a lot of really old product, and my cutie pie Ivanna is on it! ;0)
I am submitting my entry w/ just a couple of days to spare; it's due on Monday!!
Also they have a DT Call...and yup I am trying out (this is also my entry).
BTW - if you're wondering, I do have a favorite traditional Christmas's "Little Drummer Boy".
