ROCK TEAM: Summer Nights by John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John

Hi!!!! How is your summer going??? I hope fine!!!!
What about scrapping our wonderful Summer Nights????
From Grease OST....
Summer Nights
John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John

Here the lyrics
Summer loving had me a blast, oh yeah
Summer loving happened so fast,
I met a girl crazy for me,
Met a boy cute as can be,

Summer days drifting away,
To, uh oh, those summer nights

Well-a well-a well-a huh
Tell me more, tell me more
Did you get very far?
Tell me more, tell me more
Like does he have a car?

She swam by me, she got a cramp
He ran by me, got my suit damp
I saved her life, she nearly drowned
He showed off, splashing around

Summer sun, something's begun
But, oh, oh, these summer nights

Well-a well-a well-a huh
Tell me more, tell me more
Was it love at first sight?
Tell me more, tell me more
Did she put up a fight?

Took her bowling in the Arcade
We went strolling, drank lemonade
We made out under the dock
We stayed up 'till ten o'clock

Summer fling, don't mean a thing
But, oh, oh, those summer nights

Tell me more, tell me more
But you don't gotta brag
Tell me more, tell me more
'Cause he sounds like a drag

Shoo-bop-bop, shoo-bop-bop, shoo-bop-bop, shoo-bop-bop
shoo-bop-bop shoo-bop-bop shoo-bop-bop YEAH!

He got friendly, holding my hand
She got friendly down in the sand
He was sweet just turned eighteen
Well, she was good you know what I mean

Summer heat, boy and girl meet
But, oh, oh, the summer nights

Tell me more, tell me more
How much dough did he spend?
Tell me more, tell me more
Could she get me a friend?

It turned colder, that's where it ends
So I told her we'd still be friends
Then we made our true love vow
Wonder what she's doing now

Summer dreams, ripped at the seams
Bu-ut oh, those summer nights!
Tell me more, tell me more!

Wonderful song from a very funny movie. I remember my older cousins fans of John Travolta who danced with this music and i was a young girl and that christmas an aunt gifted me the LP of this OST!

Eh....wonderful memories.

But....here is my Lo

I chose the phrase True Love...this pic was made at the border between canada and usa...
I wanted come back in USA as soon as possible...:)
Usa my Love 


  Who does not love a good cocktail and scrapbooking together ...
and friends ...always a good time!!!

In this LO I used the song title as the title for my page.

The last evening of our holiday all the kids of our camping field joined the water balloon fight. They really where Splashing Around! 


Maybe I went a bit off topic but as soon as I saw this phrase in the text of the song came to my mind the fluffy clouds of Monte Bianco lit by the summer sun!!!

POP TEAM : Happy by Pharrell Williams

Hi Folks!!!! Summer is here...and this is my turn to choose the songs!
For this Pop Challenge i chose a very nice song by Pharrell Williams
From "Despicable me 2" OST....we have....


Very dark sky in Scotland, waiting to take the ship to Oarkney islands.


So much fun scrapbooking Disney pictures ....love the new Carsland!!! 
I added happy to my journaling!!!

Hey there ! I decided to use this photo of my son when he was three years old, he really really wanted this teletubbie house and asked it for our celebration of Sinterklaas, but I didn't buy it, thought he was already a little too old for it, but when he opened all his presents, he was so dissapointed that he didn't get it, so I decided to make a sticker list and every time he went to the toilet by himself he gets a sticker, when the list was full he finally got the teletubbie house and look at his face, soooo HAPPY !!!1

This time I decided to make a card which is all about being happy! :)


I found a picture of my three with big smiles on their faces and then used "happy as a repetition
around the paper.

ROCK TEAM: Foo Fighters - Times like these

Hello everyone!

It is time for a new challenge for this month of sun and holiday... This time it is FOO FIGHTERS with TIMES LIKE THESE. I love the Foo Fighters!!! And this, I think can be a beautiful inspiration to scrap some very special moments...

This is the cover:

The video:

The lyrics:

I am a one way motorway
I'm a road that drives away
and follows you back home
I am a streetlight shining
I'm a white light blinding bright
Burning off and on

It's times like these you learn to live again
It's times like these you give and give again
It's times like these you learn to love again
It's times like these time and time again

I am a new day rising
I'm a brand new sky
To hang the stars upon tonight
but I
I am a little divided
Do I stay or run away
And leave it all behind?

It's times like these you learn to live again
It's times like these you give and give again
It's times like these you learn to love again
It's times like these time and time again

You can join us with any type of creation, you just have to use something of this song, use some words of the lyrics, or get inspired by the cover. Please log your entry before July 28 (Eastern USA)

I used the tilte of the song for a very sweet coloured LO of me and a  friend on a party. We were dressed like hippies, so thats why I used the flower paper.


I used the phrase Brand new sky. 
I used this pic taken on the boat to Oarkney islands, Scotland :D

I made a page with some photos of my daughter with her grandfather. These are treasured memories as I do not have many photographs of them together as my father died less than a year later.


I go on my girls trip every year and I have a wonderful time with all my girlfriends ...it is fun to get away from the family every once in a while!!!

I used a sticker with the word time that appear many times in the lyrics.


Hello! I had this picture that I could not use, but I liked it very much! 
With this song I made this LO digital, a new discovery, thanks also to the Silhouette Cameo!

POP TEAM- Avicii "Wake Me Up"

hello everyone !!!!
This month we have a beatiful and happy song for you !!!!! you can get inspired by the lyrics or ever by one word !!!our designers did an excellent job using this song so there is a lot of inspiration for you !!!

Feeling my way through the darkness Guided by a beating heart
I can't tell where the journey will end But I know where it starts
They tell me I'm too young to understand They say I'm caught up in a dream
Well life will pass me by if I don't open up my eyes Well that's fine by me

So wake me up when it's all over When I'm wiser and I'm older
All this time I was finding myself And I didn't know I was lost

I tried carrying the weight of the world But I only have two hands
I hope I get the chance to travel the world And I don't have any plans
I wish that I could stay forever this young Not afraid to close my eyes
Life's a game made for everyone And love is a prize

So wake me up when it's all over When I'm wiser and I'm older
All this time I was finding myself And I didn't know I was lost

I didn't know I was lost

and here is the video to get you in the mood!!!!

I created an art journal page ispired by the lyric "through the darkness". 


It was hard to choose a lyric from this song and find the right photo with it., but I finally choose: Life's a game  and I thought this crazy photo of my son was the right photo to use :-)

we hope that you get inspired and play with us this month!!!

I chose the line "wiser and older" and scrapped a picture of my Nan with my son- so Great Grandma and Grandson

I made a layout with a picture of me holding a map and I used the lyrics "travel the world" for my title. As in the song, travelling has been and still is an important part of growing and "finding myself".

and now for our winner from June!!!
 congratulations Brenda !!!you did a great job with this layout !!!

 Write us at melaniascalfaro@yahoo.it.

Rock team: AEROSMITH - Hole in my soul

Are you ready for this beautiful rock song???? I hope you can let inspire by this beautiful Aerosmith song I chose for you!!!
Let's get your rock soul!!!!
I think this song has not been simple for my DT friends, but I had absolutely use it because it reminds me precious school memories.

Hole in my Soul - da Aerosmith (lyrics)


I chose to use a tag to play with the colors and shades of the soul ... I really like these songs with strong emotions that make the heart beat faster! They remind me of precious moments of school ...


I have to admit to struggling with this song, initially - it just did not talk to me at first. Maybe I was thinking too much about the meaning behind the words, so I decided to bring them back to face value. One that I did this it all slotted in well. I went with a part of the "Take a walk outside your mind Tell me how it feels," and I literally used this to show a photograph of a day we spent at a local garden


I used the line "Take a look and you will find" for a LO about the other hobby of my son and me: Geocaching! This time we found a bottle with marbles and a logroll, near our own village.



I had fun listening to this song and found the word forever was in it many many times ...and we just got a new cat and thought a page with that title wound work wonderfully with this challenge!! Thanks for looking at my work!!!


I used the word Love that is in the song!


A horror art journal page...
Always loved this phrase!!!! It gives really the idea of a bad perrson :)


Hello!  I have decided to focus on the country of origin of Aerosmith, the United States, and I made an album for a girl who will do six months in college, specifically in Maine.
