July Music Challenge *WINNERS*

Post by pawprints » Sat Jul 04, 2020 1:26 pm

Before I announce my winners I want to say thank you to all of you for your condolences and for supporting my challenge this month in honor of my cousin Ellen. All of your kind words were so very appreciated. I enjoyed seeing the different ways you all got inspiration from Elton John and all the very creative things that you all did. Thanks to everyone that participated!

Since I had over 20 submissions I am picking 2 winners!

Random winner #1, chosen using the iPhone app RandomNum, is…
#11 Tammey

Random winner #2, chosen using the iPhone app RandomNum, is:
#21 Deanna13

Congrats Tammey and Deanna! I have sent out your gift cards!

 


Cherries, I am putting aside what I was working on for this month's Music Challenge because I want to dedicate this one to my cousin's wife Ellen, who just lost her battle with cancer last night. Ellen and my cousin Joe were together since high school, and I always think of her as my cousin too. Although they lived up in Massachusetts, I have so many wonderful memories of when we were together. Ellen was a huge Elton fan like me, so there was always Elton music playing out in their yard when we were there. We always talked about him and his concerts, and when she came out here back in 2014 when my dad passed she gave me a DVD of one of his concerts. She was my Elton buddy.

So I want to dedicate this month's Music Challenge to her. I am going to rewind to a previous Music Challenge that I ran back in November 2018 that was all about Elton.

This one is for you Ellen.

Here is the link Cherries.

November 2018 Music Challenge

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.

Post your submissions to this thread by midnight (whenever midnight is for you) July 31st and a random winner of all participants will receive a $5 ACOT GC from me!

Most of all, have fun!

I have many example layouts on the challenge page so you will see them there.

I'm so very sorry about your cousin, sending prayers of comfort and peace. This is a beautiful tribute. 

I LOVE this challenge and I LOVE Elton!!  He is by far my favorite artist, have seen him 4 times and he is the only person I have ever written a fan letter to (I was 8). So excited for this challenge :)

My deepest sympathy for the loss of your cousin/Elton buddy.  Hugs to you and your family. 


I used title from 1972 Elton John song "Crocodile Rock".  Of course the pictures were taken in Florida and its alligators but close enough.  My oldest son visiting his sister/family last month.  They visited a lot of outdoor sites with the virus closing most everything else down.

I'm so sorry for your loss, Barb.  Sounds like you and your cousin had fond memories----hold on to them.

I love Elton, too, and was lucky to see him in concert some years ago here in PA.  Have many of his albums and CDs, too.

Great challenge!
Always remember that you are unique----
just like everybody else.

I am sorry for your loss. I wanted to scrapbook more water photos of the twins, and when I googled water I found "Madman Across the Water," which seemed like it would make a fun title.

The only other thing I can think of is Rock and Roll Madonna and Elton's Song.  I'm stumped but intrigued!!

Here is my first as I will probably do all 3, I LOVE him.  This song is one of my favorites, I used it for a slideshow for dear friends that moved and for the end of year wrestling video. It's a great one.  "Friends"

What a beautiful tribute to Ellen. Elton John is one of my all-time faves, as well. (Guess we all grew up in the same era, huh? ;) )  For some crazy reason, I didn't do this challenge when you posted it...probably too busy with school, so I am looking forward to it! :)
