Mid-month reveal May + April challenge and giveaway winners

Hi there, it's time for the mid-month DT reveal.
Each month here at Scrap it with a song we give you a pop and a rock song as inspiration to create any kind of paper project (altered canvas, card, layout, ATC, art journal…) you choose !!!
You can use lyrics, title, or maybe the video to inspire you: here is a link to the challenge rules.

Here are the songs for May:





And this is wat the other part of the  DT Members made of it:


I based this LO on the line "Can we be together?" I used the word together in the LO, because the answer to that question is definitely YES!!!

The phrase DO YOU EVER GET THAT FEAR THAT YOU CAN'T SHIFT THE TIDE THAT STICKS AROUND LIKE SOMETHING IN YOUR TEETH? it reminded me of the fear of my boyfriend for fun - bob that we are in the mountains.



I was inspired by the word Bright to create a bright colorful summer card !!

I was inspired by the song title, "Bright Eyes"

I was inspired by the song title, "Bright Eyes".  My son, Cole, has huge, bright, blue eyes.  On his 4th birthday, I placed the stand of lit cupcakes in front of him and his eyes just lit up.  I'm so grateful that we captured the moment.  This month's challenge inspired me to use this photo and document one of his"bright-eyed" moment.

Come and join us before the end of the month, then you make a chance to win this nice RAK:

The Design Team will also choose their favorite project and the winner will be our Guest Designer for a future challenge!

And now, we have to announce some winners:
Please winners contact us at scrapitwithasong at to get the prizes!

This showcase of butterflies found in Barcelona during a trip reminds me of the wonderful days of vacation!
I hope this page will inspire you.

I had fun making this page about my son and what he has to offer the world ...the world and then life he wants to lead is ahead of him!!!
I used word "secrets" for this pic shot in the Montreal Botanical Garden in 2010



I used part of the lyrics, " Oh, is it a dream?!" as title: I was in US, in a 1$ store with billions of cute stuff... really a dream! There were also scrapbooking stuff :)

Hey there, the title of this song was meant for a photo of my boy who has bright blue eyes.
