July Music Challenge *WINNER*

Postby pawprints » Wed Jul 04, 2018 4:45 pm

I am amazed at all the inspiration you all got from this challenge! Awesome song choices! I want you to know that now I have many of those songs stuck in my head lol! Thanks to everyone that played along!

The winner, chosen using RandomNum iPhone app, is…
#14 blbabe1234

Congratulations Brandy!!!  I have sent out your gift card! Please let me know if you don't receive it.
________________________________________________


For this month Cherries I'd like you to get your inspiration from a song that was popular the year you graduated high school. You can do a Google search of popular songs for that year and find a list of songs. You do not have to use the title of the song, you can get inspiration from it in any way.

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 5.

You have until midnight (whenever midnight is for you) July 31st to post your submissions to this thread. A random winner will receive a $5 ACOT GC from me!

Most of all have fun!

I graduated in 1972 (yes I am dating myself lol) and I chose the song "Anticipation" by Carly Simon for my inspiration. The title of the song is perfect for this cute photo of Aiden waiting for the first batch of cookies we were baking to come out of the oven.

Yikes - I graduated in 1966 and one of my favorite songs from that year was Good Lovin' by The Rascals which was a perfect title for this layout which is based on video #3 from the Shimelle layering class.,

Here's my page:  I chose a song by the Turtles: "Happy Together", on the top 100 list for 1967, my grad year from high school.
i did use the song title for my title, but my journaling is some of the song's words. I didn't know my husband in high school, but this song is perfect for our 46 year marriage!

This challenge was such fun! I graduated high school in 1999, and according to the Billboard Top 100 list, the 17th most popular song from that year was "All Star" by Smash Mouth. Therefore, that's what I used as my title. Thanks!

It was FUN searching for these old songs...from 1981! LOL!
For this layout I chose the song "Being with you" by Smokey Robinson.

I combined with July's Manufacturer challenge!

1993- "Ain't Going Down Till the Sun Comes Up" by Garth Brooks
Garth Brooks had a lot of hit songs in the 90s.  I googled to see which ones were hits the year I graduated and this was one.
