ROCK TEAM - Iggy Pop "Passenger"

Iggy Pop - Passenger

I am the passenger and I ride and I ride
I ride through the city's backsides
I see the stars come out of the sky
Yeah, the bright and hollow sky
You know it looks so good tonight

I am the passenger
I stay under glass
I look through my window so bright
I see the stars come out tonight
I see the bright and hollow sky
Over the city's ripped backsides
And everything looks good tonight
Singing la la la la la.. lala la la, la la la la.. lala la la etc

Get into the car
We'll be the passenger
We'll ride through the city tonight
We'll see the city's ripped backsides
We'll see the bright and hollow sky
We'll see the stars that shine so bright
Stars made for us tonight

Oh, the passenger
How, how he rides
Oh, the passenger
He rides and he rides
He looks through his window
What does he see?
He sees the sign and hollow sky
He sees the stars come out tonight
He sees the city's ripped backsides
He sees the winding ocean drive
And everything was made for you and me
All of it was made for you and me
'Cause it just belongs to you and me
So let's take a ride and see what's mine
Singing la la la la.. lala la la [x3]

Oh the passenger
He rides and he rides
He sees things from under glass
He looks through his window side
He sees the things that he knows are his
He sees the bright and hollow sky
He sees the city sleep at night
He sees the stars are out tonight
And all of it is yours and mine
And all of it is yours and mine
So let's ride and ride and ride and ride
Oh, oh, Singing la la la la lalalala


I used a line from the song to document a train trip.

I used the live of la la la la as part of stamping on my page for our Christmas picture this last year ...thanks for looking!!!
And please check out my blog for close-ups:


The song's text has inspired me a page with pictures of my city, Bologna .. I love it, with the lyrics written in the background is perfect for this challenge!


I used the Title of the song for a LO about the first long trip that I made with my son.


I used a line from the song for the title


 I used the title but even some lyrics to make a tribute to one of my favourite songs.
Thanks Jane :)


Hello to all! I have dedicated the final verses of the song on the fifth birthday of Marco, for his first ride on a scooter! He was excited and me too! Thanks Jane!

POP TEAM The Cranberries - Animal Instinct

Hello everybody!! Happy Fool Day to everyone! As I am one of the pop girls....It was my turn to choose a song for this month...so my Pop Song for this month...is....

The Cranberries - Animal Instinct

This song is one of my favorites for sooooo long!! I hope you Love it as  I do and that would be inspiration for  you too...

and that's my card....


I chose the line" it's a lovely thing we have" to document a LO about me and my sister. Last summer we started to try and recreate some of our childhood photos.


Hi, I choose the lyric: It's a lovely thing we have and use a photo of hubby and me during vacation in France, celebrating the good times in life, lol


I was inspired by the video and the lyrics of the song: the “animal instinct" of a mother towards her children. So I made a layout with an old picture of my mom and I in Paris.


I got inspired by the song's title "Animal instinct" and the story of the video.. were the mother is trying to protect her babies at all cost... and I created this art journal page !!!

 I used an "animal" digi on my card. Also the person who wrote this song seemed like they needed a hug so I used the sentiment "a hug fur You".

ROCK Team - "Simple Man" by Lynyrd Skynyrd

Lynyrd Skynyrd - Simple Man

Mama told me when I was young 

Come sit beside me, my only son 

And listen closely to what I say. 

And if you do this 

It'll help you some sunny day. Oh Yah! 

Oh, take your time... Don't live too fast, 

Troubles will come and they will pass. 

You'll find a woman, yea yea, you'll find love, 

And don't forget son, 
There is someone up above. 


And be a simple, kind of man. 

Oh be something, you love and understand. 

Baby be a simple, kind of man. 

Oh, won't you do this for me son, 

If you can? 

Forget your lust, for the rich man's gold 

All that you need, is in your soul, 

And you can do this, oh baby, if you try. 

All that I want for you my son, 

Is to be satisfied. 


Boy, don't you worry... you'll find yourself. 

Follow your heart, lord, and nothing else. 

And you can do this, oh baby, if you try. 

All that I want for you my son, 

Is to be satisfied. 


Baby be a simple, be a simple man. 

Oh be something, you love and understand. 

Baby be a simple, kind of man. (Fade out)

Words of wisdom to my teenage son.


I just loved this cute little picture of my dad when he was a little boy ...super cute ....I used the words simple man in my journaling!!!

Here is a link to my blog with the close-ups:


My son was a little afraid to go down a slide... But at last, he did it! Accidental, I made 2 pictures of it, which (almost) fit at eachother.. So a little special effect in this LO.


   I used the words sunny day  in my title.


I used sunny day for this beautiful pics taken on LaKe Ontario.


Like a little sun, Isotta in a competition of artistic gymnastics ... beautiful, just like the song that inspired the page!!

POP TEAM-Cher I Hope You Find It

The song I chose this time around is a new song by Cher.
"I Hope You Find Someone"

Please post your project by March 28th!!!

Here are our projects for this challenge:


There is this great shop in Round Top, Texas that has all this great stuff to buy and it is called "Junk Gypsy" ....so much fun stuff to look at and buy!!!!

Close-ups of this page are on my blog:


I used the Lyric these clouds for a picture of my son playing cricket in the pouring rain.


Hi, hope you enjoy our challenges so far ! At least I have fun creating with all those great pop songs ! For this one I used the lyric; Happy wherever you are ! For a little funny twist (and because I didn't had any letter "p" on my sticker sheet) I used the letter "q"


I didn't know the song but I loved it right away...especially the lyrics, because they really spoke to me. In fact, I'm about to move to a new country and there are so many things I hope this new adventure will bring me...I therefore decided to use a picture of the city I'm moving to (Bern, Switzerland) and to write the chorus of the song. Hopefully this layout will bring me luck! ;)

I was inspired by the title of the song and the meaning that you are looking for something.. so I titled my page "I hope you find happiness,love,joy...." and I really hope my baby brother finds them .... 

And now the Lo of our Guest Designer....

And now....let's see who is the Winner of February!!!!
With this beautiful Lo.....
Sweet Scraps will be our Guest Designer, next month.
Write me to melaniascalfaro@yahoo.it

And now....have fun with our new Challenge!!!!

My song is  "Who Knew" by Pink ...
Here is the link to the lyrics Here

 And this is the video:


Have fun with this song!
Please link your projects before February 28th

Here is what the Design Team did with the challenge:


Trying to get thru some our fun Disney photos from our last trip ....one of the whole family in front of the castle...hoping the boys "Remember" what fun we had in that magical place!!!

And here is a link to close-up on my blog:


I used some words of the text to evidence my youth memories.


I used the phrase "Count your blessing" This is a pic of my son, born 11 weeks before and he was back then a very little one.. Now, 5 years later, he is a healthy big boy, so I count my blessings with him! 




These are the words of the beautiful song of Pink that have inspired me:
"You took my hand
You showed me how
You promised me you'd be around..."



This is my page. I used the word "Fool" to make this page dedicated to Venice Carnival.

Have fun with this challenge!
