I love music and my taste ranges from country (mostly!) to pop, into R&B, oldies and some rap (old school). When I am stuck on a title, I usually turn to music for inspiration. Sometimes its a title, sometimes its a lyric, or the whole song. For this month’s Music Challenge at ACOT, the hostess had us choose a song by a diva and use that to inspire our next project.
I am a HUGE Madonna fan, and originally, as I was going thru her music, I had, like, 12 songs picked out! LOL! But I finally narrowed the list down to four, and then looked at some pictures to see what I was leaning towards. I ended up with a group photo of my scrappy friends taken back in August 2010. We were getting ready for bed, and since it was like 4am – we ended up being SILLY too!
The song I chose was “Express Yourself”, and the title was just PERFECT for the photo!
The design for this layout is inspired by a sketch from Sketch-N-Scrap. Its their “Inspired by…” #9:
I had alot of fun with all those little sqares and since this was such a FUN layout, I went with FUN embellies by MAMBI:
My title was cut using my Cricut and Cricut cartridge “Opposites Attract”:
All pattern paper is Basic Grey “Paper Cottage”. The circles are punched out with a circle punch, and the pattern was already like that on the paper (don’t you love it when that happens?)
