Challenge Title: The King of Rock 'n' Roll
Hostess: saffivort aka Vannessa
Keyword: HYCCT1321
Date: Monday, October 21st, 2013

This year the Hope You Can Cling To drive has become a lot more personal for me. My 56 year old aunt has just finished her radio and chemotherapy for breast cancer this summer after being diagnosed last year and we're all keeping fingers crossed that she is in the clear. Her love of life is outstanding and she truly showed what a great fighter she is throughout everything.

One of the things that has kept her going through her ordeal is her love of everything Elvis! Everyone posted photos of her beloved King on her Facebook page to make her smile when she was feeling at her worst. challenge is to be inspired in some way by Elvis and turn it into a card. You could use an image of Elvis or the idea of his sequined costumes or even the words or title of one of his many songs to inspire you. Something, anything inspired by the King of Rock 'n' Roll.

Songs I was thinking of include Blue Suede Shoes, Hound Dog, Return To Sender, It's Now or Never, Shake Rattle & Roll, Jailhouse Rock, (Let me be your) Teddy Bear, Viva Las Vegas, Love Me Tender. I know there are heaps more and you can find a very comprehensive list here if you need any more Elvis song inspiration: List of songs recorded by Elvis Presley
