Welcome to January VSBN Challenge #5 - Music

Our Music Challenge is inspired by this famous song from the Carpenters: We've Only Just Begun. There are so many fun ways you could interpret the lyrics, so don't forget to tell us what inspired you!

We've only just begun to live
White lace and promises
A kiss for luck and we're on our way
We've only begun

Before the rising sun we fly
So many roads to choose
We start out walking and learn to run
And yes, we've just begun

Sharing horizons that are new to us
Watching the signs along the way
Talking it over just the two of us
Working together day to day
Together

And when the evening comes we smile
So much of life ahead
We'll find a place where there's room to grow
And yes, We've just begun


And for your listening / viewing pleasure:

Gallery: VSBN17Jan

Have Fun!

For Category 1 (Variety), I chose to scrapbook pictures of the start of a new year. This layout will also be the first page in a new album so a double beginning!

For Category 2 (Stash Busters), I had a hard time figuring out what items to put with some of the letters, but I finally got it all sorted out! My items are Buttons, Embossed cardstock, Grosgrain ribbon, It's a Guy Thing paper, and some Number stickers.

I did a double dip by combining Category 3 (Sketch) and Category 4 (Photo Inspiration), so I may have to go back and do one of those categories again. I think it's pretty easy to tell what my inspiration was from the photo. I actually had picked the photo out a couple weeks ago and had no idea what to scrap with it, so I'm glad I thought of these pictures!

Good challenges. I loved the Carpenters and I really love that song. I'll have to see if I can work one of the challenges into the page I'm currently working on.

For the Beginnings challenge:

First Days

And thank you to Sharon (smadson) for the invitation to participate in this! I really love scrapbooking but was not feeling it for the longest time. Now my daughters are in middle and high school and there are so many exciting things to scrapbook - things they do, places my husband and I go, activities I enjoy, etc. Thanks for the invitation to play!

Finally got around to working on challenge #5. I used the lyrics "sharing horizons that are new to us" on my layout.

Here are two pages for the Stash Buster Challenge: I forgot to say in the description, but I used things and papers that have been in my stash a long time! The circle outlines I have had for a while, as well as the two buttons, I still have thousand more of them!

Music Challenge
Dad's Album Pg 8 & 9 by Shirleysgirl - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

I thought of the line "A kiss for luck and we're on our way" when I was putting this together inspired by the picture in the bottom right side of the double spread of my Dad and brother sharing a big smooch.

I actually put The Carpenters on while I worked on this! That's like dessert, right? Ha!
