Nearly another New Month!

Wow can't believe Christmas is sneaking up so quickly, well now its kinda of rushing along not sneaking!
Don't forget to check out the blog in the next couple of days for The new Song choices for the month of Dec. I have had a little sneak peek and the girls have come up with some awesome songs and fabulous layouts. Shhhhh I better not divulge any more.

I was thinking today how when doing a layout a song usually pops into my head. I was doing a layout the other night of my Best Friend and myself when we were young and carefree, and the song "Those were the days my friend, by Mary Hopkins popped into my head. Does this happen when you scrap? How sad would this world be without Music. It evokes memories, happiness, sadness, melancholy. Music is  just flaming amazing. I love it, and I will let you in on a little secret, if I had a wish I would wish I could sing like Adele, have the audience in the palm of my hand like Bono, send chills down someones spine like KD Lang when she sings Hallelujah. And guess what , I am possibly the worst singer EVER! So that sucks. Anyway enjoy a bit of KD Lang and also stay tuned in the next few days for the winner of this months Challenge


Sweet Hey
Wishing you Sunshine , Smiles and Sweet Musci

Well I love a rainy night

Listening to the wind howling and the sound of the rain against the windows always makes me think of rainy type songs and the one that comes to mind all the time is Eddie Rabbitt and "I love a rainy night" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VJ1GQFtHGxU and of course who could forget The Cascades with "Rhythm of the Falling Rain" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VJ1GQFtHGxU.

There are so many songs that can chart the weather in our lives for good or bad.

In summer I am always, much to the despair of my fellow team members, doing my best Lesley Gore version of "Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9RptJaOrZew&feature=related

So when the weather is doing it's thing what songs do you hum, sing out loud or just think about.

Don't forget to get your entries in for the November Challenges, only one week left.

Cheers Annette x

My take on one of our songs this month.

When I saw "My girl" I remembered I had done a layout on this song using wire and tiny beads.Erica was about 12 and loved the movie of the same name starring Macauley Culkin.She chose the colour scheme(purple of course!).I hope you like my interpretation.Maybe you can work on a monochromatic layout too! Don't forget to get those layouts in ladies and it is great to see the number of followers is on the rise.If you like our site tell your friends and LIKE us on Facebook.

Music as advertising

Just recently but not more so than ususal, I suppose, music has played an amazing part in advertising for TV. The effect of this is that it can make or in some cases break a song and you also have the song stuck in your head for days and everytime you hear it you remember the show.

Two recent ones that have stuck on me are "Rolling in the Deep" Adele, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYEDA3JcQqw  which has been the theme song for Underbelly Razor http://channelnine.ninemsn.com.au/underbelly/ which was a series that I really enjoyed.

Then we have "Moves like Jagger" Marron 5 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iEPTlhBmwRg&ob=av2e for the Frozen Planet http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00mfl7n who doesn't see penguins now when they hear this.

So what song do you have that makes you think of a show or movie?

Don't forget to check out our awesome song titles for this months challenges.

Cheers Annette xo

Hello!
Well here we are.....November 1st, 2011.
How fast has this year gone....Melbourne Cup...today for us Australians ( the race that stops a nation..)
 Miss Mary, Miss Annette and myself had a lovely Melbourne Cup Scrappy Day....including homemade fasinators....gorgeous lunch and way yummy Lemon Meringue Pie....mmmm!
Hope some of you had a win on the races...I was a winner, with great company, great creating and great food.

But down to business now....
                                                  my song choice for November/(Movember)  is.......
Drive by The Cars

My DD has been on her learners drivers licence for sometime now...it's such a long process now days.
 I also wanted to let her know I'll always be there for her no matter what....
{ DRIVE }
    Used TC pp also some prima printery...texture paste to do my title...glimmermist splatz...bella flourishes, kaisercraft flowers from Craftqueen...and of course lots of stitching. Scrapmatts little clock.
 With the journaling I just picked the more positive bits I liked.
I will post some closies on my blog tomorrow....
 Can't wait to see all the other DT layouts

Gorgeous Layout Kim!

My choice of song for my first STS Challenge is Adam Brands "Big Old Car" unfortunately I cannot find a Youtube clip for this song but the lyrics can be found here.

Here is my sample:


We have recently travelled the Great Ocean Road on our first big holiday. We have had our camper and Land Cruiser for a few years and just love to travel in it. My fiance Brian is a big Adam Brand fan and his Good Friends cd is always a fave to play when we are on a road trip big or small.

I have used Kaiser Little Toot range, Purple Pumpkin and A Lil Somethin embellies.

Looking forward to seeing what you all come up with

Take Care

Fantastic layout girls!
So for my layout....... I arrived at Miss Annette's on Saturday for a scrappy day and was totally unorganised, but that's how I am ..... Anyway Annette said "Do you know our Design layouts are due?" Um Yikes
So...... I just picked a piece of PP that took my fancy, looked through the pics I had with me and chose the pic to go with the colours of the PP
Hmmmmmm now to pick a song to go with the pic Hmmmmmm
As it is a Superhero Party and my GD is dressed up as one of the Incredibles we YouTube songs from the incredibles movie and came up with this






My layout is a bit of fun, but remember its how YOU interpret the song.. But this song could be quite moving and powerful, depending on your story. But anyhow here is my layout and my crazy family.
I have used Red CS, Crate Paper Farmhouse Collection,  leftover scraps from the  Bo Bunny ECT Range, Muslin, Scraps of Red material, Bakers Twine, Button from LovelyBug bits n Bobs, Heidi Swap word sticker
Happy scrapping
Mwwwwwah
Mary...


Wowsers Girls..
You have all been very busy !!

This is my song for this month ...

MY GIRL




and my lo:



Lots of Websters and Prima for this..

She really is his girl..
Has been since she was really little.
They have such a tight bond, just hope its always there like i had with my dad.

Hi Peoples,here is my layout based on the song by Meja,"It's all about the money"


I was recently at a retreat and one of the girls had this on her phone.Imagine us every time it rang.The words certainly stick in your brain.Anyway have fun and this lends itself to bling(a little tip from me) Looking
forward to seeing what you produce. Julene


These layouts are awesome so far.. cant wait to see what YOU come up with !
Announcing the winner of the Sept challenge on Friday.
Make sure youre in it to win this month !
Good luck.

Well hello again my lovelies and welcome to the latest challenges for Scrap That Song.
My song choice for this month is "What's New Pussycat" by Tom Jones http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VBdSqk78nHw and I have to admit that this is not one of my favs of him but the lyrics are just so perfect for this gorgeous pic of our kitten, Lotus, which was taken with my iphone one morning while she was sitting on my chest looking out the bedroom window.



"What's New Pussycat"

What's new pussycat? Woah, Woah
What's new pussycat? Woah, Woah
Pussycat, Pussycat
I've got flowers
And lots of hours
To spend with you.
So go and powder your cute little pussycat nose!
Pussycat, Pussycat
I love you
Yes, I do!
You and your pussycat nose!
What's new pussycat? Woah, Woah
What's new pussycat? Woah, Woah
Pussycat, Pussycat
You're so thrilling
And I'm so willing
To care for you.
So go and make up your cute little pussycat face!
Pussycat, Pussycat
I love you
Yes, I do!
You and your pussycat face!
What's new pussycat? Woah, Woah
What's new pussycat? Woah, Woah
Pussycat, Pussycat
You're delicious
And if my wishes
Can all come true
I'll soon be kissing your sweet little pussycat lips!
Pussycat, Pussycat
I love you
Yes, I do!
You and your pussycat lips!
You and your pussycat eyes!
You and your pussycat nose!

Used kraft, leftover piece of Sass Lass from the Mix and Mend collection, Kaiser rubbon, stamping and flicks of glimmer mist.
So I hope that this will maybe help to inspire you to scrap that pic of your little pussycat, cheers Annette xo
