Nothing Else Matters...

The final day of Marit's Top2000 Blog Party!

Wow, that went by in a rush!!! 

I was going to do Eddie again, but
I surprised myself by choosing a Metallica song instead.

This is for my girl KG...

Blue Monday

Day 6 of Marit's Top2000 Blog Party!

A song from my days of clubbing!  
Oh, I felt so alternative listening to New Order!
I don't think they called it "alternative"back then!!!   
 Most people just thot you were weird
: .P

I think this is the longest song I know!!!

Sometimes "I still find it so hard, to say what I need to say..."

*     *     *     *     *

Oh, and another card made using a Frantic Stamp 
and some Graphic 45 papers.

Psycho Killer

Day 5 of the Top2000 Musical Blog Party!  Eek!!!  

Yet another song that reminds me of my past!  
Back in the day, I had no idea what the song was about.  
I just really liked to sing 
"fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far better, run run run run run run run away"

And then there was True Stories...

David Byrne is so interesting!
Did you know that he has a blog??? 
Lots of social commentary there.

*     *      *      *      *

Just asking the question of myself  : .)

*     *     *    *    *

Thot I'd also include a couple of things I did for Frantic Stamper ...

This is made with Frantic's Medallion #3 and white embossing powder.

Another reminder : .P 

Simple, simple Tim Holtz's Classic #1 Set and black ink!

Let's Dance!

Day four of Marit's Top2000 Party over at her blog!

Another song that evokes great memories for me is 
David Bowie's Let's Dance,
so of course its my choice for today! 

Let's sway under the moonlight, 
this serious moonlight...

Take a Chance on Me

I've always loved ABBA!  
I especially loved ABBA's music as part of the movie
Priscilla Queen of the Desert.  
I realized there was a shift in my perception of myself 
when I related more to 
Meryl Streep and Christine Baranski's characters 
instead of the ingénue (Amanda Seyfried) 
in the movie Mamma Mia! 
where I also enjoyed ABBA's music.

I love Erasure's version of the song...

Ray of Light

Day two of Marit's Top2000 Party over at her blog! 

Madonna's Ray of Light was my song choice today. 
Madonna and I have a long history together : .)
So many of her songs are featured in the highlights of my life...


My girl here is holding the universe in her hands...

: .)

I hope you had a great day yesterday!!!

I can't help falling in love with you...

Marit's started the Top2000 Party over at her blog!  

I like to make an entrance, so I'm fashionable late... 
(Not really, but it sounded good, yeah?! LOL!)  

Actually, I went across the street at 6 am to see when Starbucks was gonna open, 
locked myself out of my house.
I wasn't able to get my spare key 'til my friend got up. (Two hours later!)
This was coupled with my garbage disposal breaking down yesterday,

I did get in a great walk and watched the sun come up.  

*     *     *     *     *

Today from the list, I chose UB40's "I Can't Help Falling in Love with You"...

This song reminds me of my first love in high school...sweet!

oh and hey,
: .)

Before the Music Ends

Not sure how to start this post considering the tragedy that occurred yesterday
of babies (and adults) being senselessly murdered in Connecticut. 

What the hell is going on in our world??? 

Peace be with all the families affected...

In other news, Scrapping the Music has decided to close down the challenge blog.  
With the year end, we say goodbye to the 5 1/2 years of inspiration. 
I've  enjoyed and appreciated all that participated during my run on the design team.  
There was some fabulous work created.
I'm so happy for the friendships made.
I also appreciate that STM helped me to express my feelings via art, 
in times where I couldn't find words.

There is related good news. 
Michelle has established a flickr group
to help motivate your musical muse... 

This will be a casual and fun place to post musically inspired work, 
have discussions, concert reviews and photos.  

Please join the group!!!

Here's my final Scrapping the Music piece based on Harry Connick Jr.'s song  
When My Heart Finds Christmas
which Patricia hooked me up with last holiday season.  

When its over, it isn't really...Keep the faith.
