04/25/13 -SIWAS : "Foolish Games"

Good Morning!
I'm a day late getting my post up! Oops! 
Yesterday a new challenge went up at "Scrap It With a Song".
The song we are inspiring you with is "Foolish Games" by Jewel.
Remember that song?
I loved it when it was popular! But at the time it came out... I was only 20 yrs old so I liked the song but never really truly paid attention to it's lyrics. When completing this challenge I looked them up and realized what a sad song it actually is! Awwwwww!
So now how to make a layout out of a sad song?
Just try to forget  what the song as 'a whole' means and pick from the lyrics the not-so-sad parts.
That's what I did w/ my layout. The lyric "smoking your cigarettes and talking over coffee" jumped out at me because it reminded me of all the times I take the kids to Starbucks. I love taking them there to have delicious coffee, non-coffee for the kids, drinks and just chatting w/ them!
I found some old pics of my daughter at Starbucks and scrapped those.
I was saddened when I realized I didn't have any of my son. So I will definitely be making sure to set up some Starbucks photo shoots w/ him in the future! LOL!
"Talking Over Coffee" 

And if you like my layout, thank you, but I can't take full credit for it.
I was actually inspired by another challenge; a sketch challenge over at "About a Girl".
Here is their sketch:

 They are actually a brand new blog and this is their first ever challenge!
Congrats to them for the blog and how amazing is their first sketch?!
That is it for me today.
I hope you'll stop by and join us!
