Challenge #3

All my scrappy friends know by now how much I love quotes. I am a bit of a quote fanatic. I believe they are a great addition to a layout and a great way to cheat when it comes to journaling. Yep... I like to cheat. I am not embarrassed by it at all.

Another favorite of mine is to use song titles and lyrics. I'll be at work and hear a song and jot down lines from it or titles. I usually come home with yellow post it notes in my pocket or purse. There are so many inspiring songs out there.

Here is a layout I did based on a song called Let Go Now by Crystal Shawanda:

Journaling reads: "Daddy left you in the truck with the radio running when he slipped into the bank. When he returned you were both sobbing. He was really concerned with all the tears. He thought something terrible had happened in the few minutes he was gone.He asked you both why you were so upset. You told him you heard a song on the radio about a little girl who tells her Daddy that he “can let go now Daddy, you can Let go. I’m old enough to face this world alone”.It was a story of a girl not needing her Daddy anymore. You both then looked up at him and said, “Daddy we never want you to let go!! We will never leave you”. You both made your Daddys heart swell with love. You should know that Daddy never wants you to let go either!"

You can find some great song lyrics here: Lyrics

One of my favorite places to find quotes is here: Quotations Page

So.... my challenge for you is to search for a special quote or song and use it on a layout or card. Everyone who does will earn a ballot for my big draw!! Please email your creation to: and put "Thynner Blog Challenge 3" in the subject line. It makes it easier for me to filter through my emails. You can also provide a link in the comments section.

**All the challenges this week are due in my inbox or on the blog November 1st!!
Happy Scrapping!
