June Music Challenge *WINNER*

Post by pawprints » Tue Jun 02, 2015 1:55 am

***** First off I want to say how much I appreciated all the kind words, thoughts, and hugs. Thank you all so much, it really meant a lot to me.

I really enjoyed everyone's different song choices and hearing about the feelings evoked by some of them. Great job by all of you!

And now, the random winner, courtesy of random.org, is…

#8 hsblair

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


*** Reminding you all that my May Music Challenge is still running and doesn't deadline until June 9th. *** 

June is going to be a month of mixed emotions for me. It will be the first Father's Day that my dad will not be here, and 5 days after that will be his birthday. That is going to be a tough week, and I've already been feeling the effects of all the Father's Day signs in the stores and all the Dads and Grads advertisements. My dad's birthday was always on the same week as graduation, so every year when I would go to Party City to buy the decorations for his party it would be mobbed with all the people buying graduation decorations and balloons. So all the graduation hoopla this year really hits hard that I won't be in Party City that weekend to buy decorations for my dad. Although I feel so sad and miss him so much, there are also many happy things going on this month. My dd's birthday is this month, and the 14th is her and my sill's first wedding anniversary! Maddie is graduating from first grade this month too! So there will be many happy things to celebrate. This got me to thinking about this month's music challenge…

I want you to pick a song that is about any kind of emotion… it can about being happy, about being excited, about being angry, about being sad, about being in any kind of a mood. Then I want you to use the title of that song for the title of your page.

Have fun and I can't wait to see what you all create!

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.

You have until the end of June to post your creations to this thread. A random winner will win a $5 ACOT gift card from me!

I decided I wanted my page to be about being happy, so I choose the song "Walking on Sunshine" by Katrina and the Waves. The title perfectly describes how happy Maddie was on her very first day of Kindergarten!

((Hugs)) to you, Barb.  I lost my dad when I was 12 years old.  There's still a catch in my heart when I see the cards/gift items show up in stores. . .  Same for Mother's Day now.

Love the challenge; I can't wait to see what photos I have to scrap to pick a song.  I love your song--perfect for a little one's layout!!  Kids that age don't have a care in the world--and it should be that way!!

Here is my June Music Challenge. I chose a more obscure feeling of sorts... optimistic! My DS has Asperger's and is very, very rarely optimistic about anything. He loved these
8 bit glasses that came in a LOOT Crate box he got for a gift. He wouldn't take them off for several days. :) I love the things he actually connects to and embraces!

I chose the Timbuk 3 song "The futures so bright (I gotta wear shades).

Here's a layout from me:

The song is by Quiet Riot and the feeling is fun and happy.

I combined with the June Sketch challenge.

Thanks!

I know just what you are feeling, Barb.  While I lost my Dad 6 years ago, June is tough with Father's Day and his birthday, too.  And I can't ignore his birthday, since my oldest brother's is the same day.  I am finding myself deleting any email that talks about making Father's Day gifts or cards.  It still is hard.  So sending hugs your way!  And thanks for a challenge that will help me to deal with this loss, too, in some way!

Many ((hugs)) Kathy. I have been getting lots of Father's Day e-mails too and they are so hard to look at I also delete them.

(((Barb))) Hugs to you - June is a bittersweet month for you but I hope the sweet will be stronger!

I used the song It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year - my kids love Christmas and all the excitement and festivity that goes with it. One of the things they look forward to the most is going to see Santa. Yes, even at their ages now LOL! DS will be 16 this Christmas and still going strong! We definitely Believe!Image
I combined this with the May Manufacturer Challenge.

Happy Scrapping!

Here's my entry!  I chose the emotion "happy," so I had to use the song title "So Happy Together!"

I'm combining with the 30 Days 30 LOs challenge.

I included some lyrics from Beauty and the Beast on my LO.  These words have always made me feel nostalgic, but now that my daughter is almost grown up, thinking back at her "princess stage" makes it even more so.

I had to chose happy because when you are around this baby girl that is the only mood you can be in. My song is Smile by Uncle Cracker which is also my title.
