Scrapping the Music - Whole Wide World

The challenge this round over at Scrapping the Music is Whole Wide World by Mindy Gledhill.  Such a cute girl power song and video...

The prompt for this round is "Is there a song you once shared or currently share with a special someone as 'your song' together?

STM is celebrating this 200th challenge (!!!) with a special event.  We have teamed up with Noel Mignon's Kit Club for the month of June!  What does that mean???  It means two things:

1.  Noel is sponsoring STM  this month with a gift certificate to her store for $20.00!  She's got awesome kits, and other fabulous scrappy goodies to choose from!  Click here to go to Noel's website, which includes the shop, blog, and a really cool and friendly online community.  All you have to do to be included in the drawing for this prize is complete a piece from the song or the prompt from the June 1st or June 15th challenge, and post it over at the 
Scrapping the Music  blog : .)  
2.  We are honored to have the Noel Mignon Design Team playing along with us for the June 1st challenge! Welcome to Virginia Tillery, Jana Eubank, Gretchen McElveen and Kimberly Neddo!  Please 
go on over to the Scrapping the Music blog to see their creations, as well as those from the rest of the design team.

As for me... I took a a cue from one of my recent posts, I created this with some of the Whole Wild World lyrics...

I chose the lyrics because altho' I'm a low risk person, I try to be brave and I liked the reminder!  

I'm so happy when I don't struggle with lyrics (or the prompt) and when serendipity plays a fast one on me, in a good way of course.  I was looking through one of my art journals and found this page I had created awhile ago.  I had added the black swirly lines that are a signature of this artist, and then inspiration struck when I looked across my "craft space"  (you all know this as the "living room floor") and saw another of my Stampotique stamps, Moth Fab.  

Her dress and hair have similar swirls, so it was a perfect match to the art journal page...I stamped and embossed MF twice, once on white cardstock and then one on the decorated scrapbook paper that I used on the journal page.  From the decorated scrapbook paper, I cut out her hair and dress as those were the parts that repeated the swirls and glued them onto the white cs base.  Added a bit of detailing as blush, for her eyes, purse, and the fringe on the bottom of her dress, added some decorated sb ppr butterflies and voil√°!!!  

I like it!!!

After all that, do please join us for the challenge, won't you?!

I know I saw this all the time, but really this one you need to frame it!!!
