May Music Challenge *WINNER*

Post by pawprints » Sun May 01, 2016 7:32 pm

***** Cherries I must apologize! It was pointed out to me that I somehow overlooked picking my winner for this challenge! Because of the extended deadline I completely forgot about it! Once I posted my June challenge this one was still running and then I forgot to pick the winner! Out of sight, out of mind so to speak! I'm so sorry!

I just loved all the wonderful ways you all used Prince as inspiration, and I loved seeing so much purple!

The winner, courtesy of Random. org, is…
#10 sweetsour

Congratulations Karrie! I just ordered your gift card and you should receive it shortly! *****


This month's Music Challenge is going to be a tribute to Prince. I can't believe how many music greats we have lost in recent months. It's just too sad.

For this challenge you may take your inspiration from anything relating to Prince. It can be a song title, a song lyric, album art, songs he wrote for others (I had no idea that "Manic Monday" and "Nothing Compares 2U" were written by him until now), or even from his name itself.

*** As an added bonus this month, if you use a predominant amount of the color purple I will enter your submission twice! (must be more than just one or two items that are purple, I want to see a lot of it) ***

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

Multiple submissions are allowed up to a limit of 3.

May be combined with one other challenge if that challenge allows it, but no combining with NSD challenges.

I'm giving an extra week because of the week you will all lose concentrating on getting NSD challenges done. So you have until the end June 8th to post your submissions. A random winner will win a $5 ACOT gift card from me!

Can't wait to see where you all get your inspiration from and what you come up with!

I got my inspiration from the song lyric "Party like it's 1999" from the song "1999". I never scrapped the pics that I took of us celebrating New Year's Eve 1999, entering the new millennium, and that lyric was the perfect inspiration for me to do it and document the special event that it was. I was also inspired by the color purple!

My gosh I can't believe how young we all were and that it was over 16 years ago!!

Perfect timing .... I just downloaded some more Prince songs to my iTunes library.  Can't wait to listen to them on my way to work tomorrow.  It will help me decide what song I want to use for this month's challenge.

Awww, Prince Image

But awesome layout! Funny, I used the same lyrics for the Y2K / 1999 NYE layout I did years ago LOL. And Oh I know - we were all so young lol. My son was just 3 months old at the time. Now we're looking into colleges! (((sniff sniff)))
Happy Scrapping!

I ordered my Paisley Park pictures just the other day. It was wonderful seeing his house and all the purple hanging from the fences by his fans. I too am saddened that he is gone Image

I used the album titled 'Around the World in A Day' (1985) for my page title.  It was perfect for this Disney page where we spent the entire day in EPCOT touring the World Showcase.
I think I have enough purple for the extra entry.  I made my own embellies so they could be purple, cuz I sure didn't have any purple anything!!
Thanks for a great challenge again this month!

I took this literally and made a purple page to honour his purpleness, Prince himself.  Loved him and his music, and was
shocked and saddened to hear about his passing.
It will be a great addition to my high school album.
