April Music Challenge *WINNER*

Post by pawprints » Fri Apr 03, 2015 2:54 am

***Thanks to everyone that participated! Loved all of your great pages! The winner, courtesy of random.org, is…

#6 Christi S.

Congratulations Christi! I will be sending you your gift card shortly!***


This month is going to be about celebrating the arrival of Spring! I want you to choose any song about flowers, trees, nature, etc. as inspiration. Use the song title or a lyric from the song as your title. The song title itself doesn't necessarily have to have the word flowers, trees, or the name of a particular flower in it, it just should be about flowers, trees, nature, a walk in the park, etc.

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

Multiple submissions are allowed.

May be combined with one other challenge if that challenge allows it.

Post your creation to this thread by the end of April. I will accept entires up until the time I pick my winner. A random winner will win a $5 ACOT gift card from me!

Most of all, have fun! Lets fill this thread with the feeling of Spring!

Here is my page. I chose the 1967 song "The Rain, The Park, and Other Things" by the Cowsills (yes I am really dating myself here lol). I used the lyric "Flowers Everywhere!" for my title, as it went perfectly with this photo of Twinkie as a 3 month old puppy discovering, and yes ultimately destroying, newly bloomed Spring flowers in the yard.

I just observed and took some cute pics of my grandaughter (2) picking the tiny wildflowers coming up on the weeds this morning. I'll have to do a search for a song to go with it. Such fun to see her excitement in collecting these and bringing them to grandpa and me.

I read the challenge and hadn't yet scrolled down to your example when I started singing that exact song. As a teen I loved that song. I hope I can do this challenge this month. Love your example.

Ok here is mine. 

Image
 It is Chris August song. I wrote a few verses out and a couple lines that border the paper.

From the birds that sing
In the tallest trees
to the human life
of you and me

from the desert sands
to the place we stand
He is God of all
He is Everything

I'm giving my life to the only one
who makes the moon reflect the sun
Every Starry Night
That was his design

I'm giving my life to the only one
who was and is and yet to come
let the praises ring
Cause He is everything

From the autumn leaves
that will ride the breeze
to the faith it takes
to pray annd see

From the painted sky
to my plank filled eye
He's God of all
He is Everything

This song has special meaning to me with the "Starry Night" as it was outside on a Starry Night when I actually got saved. So besides how wonderful of a praise song this is, it does have even more meaning to me.
As far as the challenge goes it speaks of birds and trees, flowers, moon and stars (nature and spring!!) and I thought the backgound paper as the "painted sky".  It was sooo cool that the word card also had the words STARRY NIGHT( I used my stickles the teal color of the flowers and bird  on it,)  The papers & word card are Simple Stories the teal metal bird and flowers are from K & company.
