I can feel the lifting of my blues...

Rolling into Santa Cruz : .)

Smiley Julie pointed me in the direction of another scrappy throwdown 
at the challenge blog, Scrapping the Music,
where she's on the design team.

Scrapping the Music suggests a song as inspiration and 
you're to create a piece from the music.

This week's challenge song is
Santa Cruz by Eddie Vedder.  

In 2008, Eddie went on a solo tour and
wrote this song on the way to his gig 
at the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium.

He sang it for the crowd, me included!!!  
The concert was one of the best I've ever been to.

I'm playing along 'cause the challenge gives me a reason to document the moment...
The background is the lyrics to the song, 
there's a little glimmer mist, 
some Basic Grey & Heidi Swapp rub-ons, 
Heidi Swapp ghost wings
a treble clef paperclip, and 
images of my ticket and 
the program from the concert. 

(It was a hard call, I have silly pixs from
this year's Santa Cruz 1/2 Marathon
that were dying to be scrapped to this song. 
I guess that gives me more reason to glue bits to paper!)

I need the beach to set me free
I need the wind to make me breathe
I need the water to wash my soul
I need my loved ones to let me go...

Eddie, swoon!!!  I love Eddie!!!
