___________________________________________________



It's finally here Cherries! Sorry for the big delay I have been just so non stop busy this month. Since it's so late in the month I am going to run this through the end of June.

My challenge for you is to get your inspiration from any singer/songwriter. Remember a singer/songwriter is anyone that writes and performs their own songs. Some examples are Billy Joel, Sheryl Crow, Adele, Bruce Springsteen, John Denver, Carly Simon, James Taylor, Carol King, Dolly Parton, Jewel, Sara Bareillis, Taylor Swift… there are so many more. You may get your inspiration from any singer/songwriter in any way that they inspire you. It may be a song title, it may be a lyric,  it may be album art, it may be something they have done or something they stand for, it may be the instrument that they pay… anything about them that inspires you. You do not have to use a song title or a lyric on your layout, but of course may do so if that is what has inspired you. Just tell us who the singer/songwriter is and how you were inspired by them.

Open to paper, digi, hybrid, cards, crafts, or whatever this inspires you to create.

You may combine with one other challenge that allows it.

Multiple submissions are allowed up to a limit of 3.

Note extended due date: You have until midnight (whenever midnight is for you) June 30th to post your submissions to this thread. A random winner will receive a $5 ACOT GC from me!

Most of all have fun!

This is the layout I did. When Sky when was a puppy. Twinkie wanted to play with her all the time and we had to teach her to not be rough with her. We couldn't let her play with Sky unsupervised for a long time. I got my inspiration from the song "All I Wanna Do" by Sheryl Crow. All Twinkie wanted to do was have fun with Sky. So I used the lyric "All I wanna do is have some fun" for my title. I thought it went perfectly with this photo that ds took of the two of them together. Twinkie just looks like that is what she is saying in the pic lol.

Oh! I just posted a LO yesterday that would have been perfect for this challenge! My DSD and I are huge Taylor fans. I'm sure I can come up with another LO for this. :) I cant wait to get started on this...

Here's one using the title "Best of Times" by Sheryl Crow.

I combined with the Rewind Challenge catching up on the Holiday Challenge about Mother's Day.

This turned out to be the perfect challenge as I create my kids school layouts.  This layout is inspired by the singer/songwriter Chuck Berry and his song "School Days".

I chose this song called "memories" that Mac Davis wrote for Elvis. But he did write his own hits too! I combined this challenge with Donna's 3 in a row challenge!

For my 2nd entry I chose a song from Janis Joplin called "farewell song".  Our Paster retired last September. These pics were taken of him and his wife at his tribute sunday.

I created a two page layout where I used lyrics from Kacey Musgraves' song Dime Store Cowgirl as my title. 

Here is the link to that layout incase I didn't add the photos correctly (still learning): http://www.acherryontop.com/gallery/247517

Matthew West: singer/songwriter is a Christian influence and I was inspired to serve.

Chris Tomlin's concert inspired me to include others in my life.

Matthew West's song encouraged me at a very low point in my life. The song Mended helped me heal.

My title is a line from "Wherever You Will Go"  which is written and performed by The Calling.

Together for all time
Combined with patterned paper.
