September {Yay! Spring} -Scrap That Song Challenge.

  Well, finally September and Spring (for us aussie's), is here...Yippieee!
Such a beautiful time of the year....der! Kim...

 Few exciting things are happening for me and my family....My hubby and my two eldest sons are taking off on an epic could even say mammoth!!!!
    Shall tell you more about it in the next few weeks.   (alot of people think he's nuts, but I think he is adventurous...not crazy!!!!).

   Now onto scrappiness matters, over at Scrap that Song the new songs for September are up....and might I say what a mix,   September Songs  pop over and have a sticky.
 Great mix of old and new, some true classic's.

 I decided to go for one that I'm not sure many of you would have heard that is unless you use to watch Scrubbs....???
 My older children loved the show, they brought all the song is from the final episode

 It is called
                   The Book of Love  by Peter Gabriel
The lyrics
 "I Love it when you read to me"
I just love...pictured all the stories Roy and I have read to our children over the last 21 years...all those special cuddley moments as they snuggle in and drift off to sleep...and they still do....well the younger two anyways.

{Love it when you read to me}
Used the yummy 6x6 C/W houndstooth template and texture paste, made another homemade flourish. Used some Scrapmatts small gears. Trim, buttons, alpha stickers from CRAFTQUEEN 

{Bit of a closie}
 With a bit of spare time I decided to do a layout for Annette's chosen song SUNSHINE ON MY SHOULDERS.....such a beautiful song oh! I so love John Denver's voice...truly gorgeous!!! [great song choice Miss A].
[Sunshine On My Shoulders]
I thought the pic's were just made for this layout. Hugo was such a cutie with his curly locks....sigh!

Again I used fabulous supplies from CRAFTQUEEN
(The buttons, Authentique pp (yum!), prima stamp and those pretty little white flowers.) The corri alpha's I actually brought up in Brissie at expo, I wish I had of got more than just one pkt...grr!
My silly sewing machine was being a bit spazzy but I thought I would use it to my advantage for the outer boarder...(most likely 'cause i had two different thickness cottons...doh!)

Ok better head off now and start my day hope you have enjoyed your stop over...Please leave a little loving as it so makes my day a little brighter.

Until next time
keep it real
