11/28/15 - "14 Yrs"

Hi there!
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

Just wanted to stop by and share a layout I created today.
I was inspired to create the layout from 2 different sources

"The Memory Nest" blog and

First the layout (click on image to enlarge):

The overall design was inspired by sketch #49 from "The Memory Nest":

The overall theme and journaling was inspired by a challenge at; the "November Music Inspiration" challenge.
"The purpose of the challenge is to create a layout using something from a song, whether it is all or part of a title, lyrics or artist name. The fun part is you do not get to chose your own song - the person who signs up after you does!" 

The song that was chosen for me was: "Zing! Went the Strings of my Heart" by Judy Garland....that's some serious "old school" music, huh?

I used some lyrics from the song in my journaling (in italics):
"After 15 years 'I still recall the thrill, I guess I always will... I love you, I love you!' Happy 14th Anniversary"
Just and FYI: I went back and added the date after scanning because I realized I had forgotten to do so originally (07/16/15)..because dates are important!
This makes layout #12 for me this year!
So basically 1 layout a month...not bad for someone who didn't scrap for 8 months!
