Scrapping the Music - Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Another day, another challenge over at Scrapping the Music!

This round is presented by the lovely STM design team member Sharon.  She chose Israel Kamakawiwo'ole's version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow.

I just love this rendition!

I always sigh a bit remembering the movie 50 First Dates with Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore where they used the song at the end.  One of my favorites!

Anyway, I did a piece with a little spin...

(I used this sketch..)

I decided to use one of the photos of me at the street faire, in a piece entitled:

Somewhere Over the Rainbow, Sprinkles Fly...Happiness sprinkles!  

Get it? 
Somewhere over the rainbow, bluebirds fly.  
Bluebirds of happiness.  
Happiness sprinkles.  
Somewhere over the rainbow, sprinkles fly.  

OK, maybe that's just how my mind works : {)  (oh geez, I just figured out how to make a mustachioed emoticon! tee hee hee!  totally an accident.  ahem.)  

And the prompt?  Oh yes...Scrap about a song you remember your mom singing to you as a child, or one that you sing/sang to your own children.

While I didn't do a piece for the prompt, I do remember my Mom singing You Are My Sunshine to my sis.  Good memories!

I also have the July 15th sketch from Frantic Stamper to present...
Once I got started working, one card wasn't enough, so I made two...

This first card uses bits of Bo Bunny's Hello Sunshine line, yellow bazzill cardstock, Martha Stewart bf punch, and a Memory Box die.  The alpha stickers are Basic Grey, I think.

Oh, and the second also uses bits of Hello Sunshine, with the exception of some packaging backing (say that five times fast!) from some Prima flowers and the black & white striped paper.  Isn't that bee just too cute?!

You wanna play along with all three challenges, doncha?!   : .)  Please do!
