AAM Challenge #10: The Soundtrack of Your Life is already up!
Honestly, I could not think of any song that screams "This is my life!" (I am attributing this to the fact that I am seriously musically challenged. LOL.) True, there are a few songs that I thought of for this challenge - - All of my Life (I wanted to use this as my bridal march song, but my church didn't allow me to), Ikaw (my lullabye song to Nat and Phil), a Beatle song which my hubby sang for me during our wedding reception (LOL, good thing my hubby's too busy to read my blog, sshhhh, don't tell him I forgot which song he sang for me!!!!) Last minute, I chose this one - - the only song which lyrics I know by heart.
Journaling: I remember my dad singing this to me when I was a little girl. It may be meaningless when put into context, but to me, it's the sweetest heart's song there is. Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper, Paper: Sassafrass Lass, Chipboards: Fancy Pants, Flower and pebble: Prima Marketing, Buttons: BasicGrey, Bingo card: Jenni Bowlin Studio, Ephemera card: 7Gypsies, Stamps: My Little Yellow Bicycle, Stickers: Bella Blvd, 7Gypsies, Journaling spot: Jillibean Soup, Paints: Pebeo, Making Memories, Ink: Tsukineko, Clearsnap, Ranger, Chipboard alphabet and felt flower: American Crafts, Rub-on: Scenic Route, Liquid Pearls: Ranger, Brad: K & Company, Pen: Uni-ball, Other: Ribbon, Cuttlebug Die (Cat).
I wrote the song in the music paper - - and if I translate the song in English, it will go something like this: Janis caught a mouse / the mouse looks pitiful / Meow, meow, meow Janis said/ I will not forgive you! Too bad I never asked my dad how he came up with that song!
Settled for a non-photo layout - - I realized I don't have baby pics of me with my dad, even pics of me when I was a baby (note to self: ask Ate Jaden if she was able to keep our family pictures). To make up for it, I used my Cat Cuttlebug die for the cat and mouse diecuts (yup, after almost two years of keeping it, it's only now that I was able to use it on my layout!!!) I used my Ranger Distress Inks to color the die cuts.
You can see the rest of the DT's layouts here. Hope you can play along with us!!!
Thanks for looking.
