Scrap That Song- March Challenge

Evening all!

So for our March Challenge over at http://www.scrapthatsong.blogspot.com.au/  we had to pick a song  for our inspiration that was released in the year or decade we were born in.....hmmm????
 Thinking cap on for the year 1970......
?????
Then it came to me Cat Stevens.......Wild World....did some research, Yep! 1970

Cool Man!!!
I've always enjoyed Cat Stevens music....yes! YES...I know he changed his name....but when he recorded this music he was known as Cat Stevens.

My DD, Samantha recently turned the big 18 on the 23rd January.....might I add during not a very pleasant time....meaning we had a very sick 5 year old in hospital, having his appendix taken out on what should have been a fabulous day for our firstborn daughter.....she was such a darling about it all.
 I did manage to slip away from the hospital and take her out for tea.....before we left home that evening being the true-blue scrapper I am I took half a dozen pic's of Samantha on her special day...(thinking at least I have some beautiful photo's of her....yeah! right!!
 Thinking I had these most precious pic's I started on a layout in which I planned to use them.... Went to print the photo's.....couldn't find them...searched and searched,......Where could they have gone???

 Samantha had deleted them by accident...while taking pic's of her major art work for school!!!!
My heart broke...S#@%!!!!
Haven't felt that sad about pic's since 1996 when Mason's baby pic's from hospital didn't turn out at all.
 Samantha managed to save the day and grabbed a photo from her bestie Brooke taken at her birthday party which was held on the 21st January 2012...thank the lord!!!
I had already stamped the date on my layout before I discovered the missing photo's


So my layout went ahead...not quite as I had planned but anyway

OMGOSH Kim I LOVE this layout. I would have been devestated as well If my photo's got deleted :(
You have made a beautiful layout of Samantha's 18th , thank goodness there was still a photo. It is a beautiful photo and a beautiful layout. Love the soft blue and the flourish with the gorgeous flowers and key.
Just LOVE your work girl
