Week 15 - Somewhere Over The Rainbow

...that's where you'll find me, and the rest of this week's lyrical inspiration. Of course this song is best known by Judy Garland in the movie, 'The Wizard of Oz'. I am sure you can imagine how hard it is to find good recordings online of older songs, so this week if you choose to play the video for extra inspiration you'll hear the beautiful voice of Katherine McPhee instead.

This week is being sponsored again by the adorable Sew Many Cards!!!

My name is Angela and I own Sew Many Cards. I have a husband, an almost 10year old daughter, a two year old son, and a dog/puppy: Hershey. The images of Sew Many Cards came from a dream that my husband had of a group of animals that were "SEWN Together" with patches and stitching, hence the name, which he also came up with. You will find that every image in the Sew Many Cards collection has patches and stitching, even the ones that are not animals. I love to draw and almost every image is either an inspiration from my family or a request from my great customers and design team, so please ask if you need something specific or would like to request something be made. You can contact me at

They have offered up to the winner of this week's challenge FIVE digi images from their shop. I can't wait to see what you all create :)


When all the clouds darken up the skyway
There's a rainbow highway to be found
Leading from your window pain
To a place behind the sun
Just a step beyond the rain

Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
There's a land that I heard of
Once in a lullaby

Someday I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where troubles melt lemon drops
Away above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me

Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow
Why then oh why can't I

If happy little bluebirds fly
Beyond the rainbow
Why, oh, why can't I


This week we will say goodbye to our DT girlie, Angela. It has been such an inspiration watching your digi stylings impress us week after week. We will of course continue seeing her around the block as she will continue sponsoring us every month and a half. Hopefully we'll see her jump in a few challenges as well! So here is the curtain call for our Scrap It With a Song DT member:







Our new DT will be announced later this week. Thank you so much for the interest you all showed in this blog through the DT call. It was an overwhelming number, but I hope we got some great inpiration for you lined up. The rest of the DT will be carrying on until the end of August and a few of them into the next term. YAY!

You will have until Sunday, August 1st at noon (CDT) to link up your creation with the inlinkz app. I can't wait to see what you all do with this song. As you've seen in the DT examples, you can rip a portion of the lyrics right out as your title or journaling or even use it to inspire your embellishments or photograph choices!
