Week #5 - Love Story

Who doesn't love a love story? This week's song is Love Story by Taylor Swift. It would be a perfect chance to scrapbook a wedding photo, a photo of your sweetie, or any couple in loooove. There are also several scrapabale ideas you can take from this song that have nothing to do with romance as well. You can journal the lyrics, pick a line to use as your title, base the layout on the overall theme, or just take a line in the song and run with it and make it your own. However it inspires you. I'd also like to remind you all that we are a multi-craft blog. So pass us along to your scrappy and cardmaking friends alike!!

Challenge #5 is being sponsored by the very fabulous Cassandra from PaperMom. Click the banner below to go to her website. She has adorable digi images and handmade items to swoon over.

She has not only offered the winner 3 digi images, but each of the remaining 4 runner ups will get 1 image as well. So click on over and show some love :)


We were both young when I first saw you.
I close my eyes, and the flashback starts,
I'm standing there,
On the balcony in summer air.

I see the lights, see the party, the ballgowns.
See you make your way through the crowd,
And say, "Hello",
Little did I know,

That you were Romeo,
You were throwing pebbles,
And my daddy said, "Stay away from Juliet."
And I was crying on the staircase,
Begging you, "Please don't go".

And I said,
"Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone.
I'll be waiting, all that's left to do is run.
You be the prince, and I'll be the princess,
It's a love story, baby, just say, 'yes'."

So I sneak out to the garden to see you,
We keep quiet, 'cause we're dead if he knew,
So close your eyes,
Escape this town for a little while.

'Cause you were Romeo,
I was a scarlet letter,
And my daddy said, "Stay away from Juliet."
But you were everything to me,
Begging you, "Please don't go".

And I said,
"Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone.
I'll be waiting, all that's left to do is run.
You be the prince, and I'll be the princess,
It's a love story, baby, just say, 'yes'."

"Romeo, save me, they're trying to tell me how to feel.
This love is difficult, but it's real.
Don't be afraid, we'll make it of this mess,
It's a love story, baby, just say, 'yes'."

Well, I got tired of waiting,
Wondering if you were ever coming around.
My faith in you was fading,
When I met you on the outskirts of town.

And I said,
"Romeo, save me, I've been feeling so alone.
I keep waiting for you, but you never come.
Is this in my head,
I don't know what to think,"

You knelt to the ground,
And pulled out a ring and said,
"Marry me, Juliet, you'll never have to be alone.
I love you, and that's all I really know.
I talked to your dad, go pick out a white dress,
It's a love story, baby just say yes."

We were both young when I first saw you...
