Check out our challenge tomorrow!!!!!!! Also there is news about some changes to the blog HERE and a Design Team Call will be coming!!!!!!!!!!!!

Making Changes!!!!!!

Starting February 14th, we are making some changes here at Scrap It With A Song. Instead of weekly challenges, we are going to have Bi-Weekly challenges. We will have two songs for each challenge and you can pick which one you want to do or try them both!!!

The rules are essentially the same. I included them below to refresh your memory:

Every other week two new songs will be posted. You are free to take your creativity anywhere the lyrics move you. We welcome entries that are layouts, cards, projects, etc as long as you incorporate the lyrics somehow. Journal a portion of the chorus, pick a line and make it your title or sentiment, or even let the photos and embellies sing the words for you. You can base the layout on the song as a whole or even pull out a favorite lyric or word and use that as a starting point....the possibilities are endless. Just make sure if you stretched the challenge a bit thin to spell out how you interpreted it so that we can all be wowed by your skills :)

To clarify a bit....an example:
Say the song was Mary Had a Little Lamb...We probably WON'T be using nursery rhymes, but for example. :) You could obviously take it literally and make a layout about someone and a sheep (think: a kid at the farm). Or you could make it a baby layout and use little sheep embellies. You could scrap about something that is white and title it or journal the phrase 'white as snow.' Or even a layout about someone waiting patiently. Whatever photos/layout/idea come to you when you hear the lyrics let it flow. Anyway the song inspires you to create!!


You are free to combine it with any and all additional challenges you would like. The only stipulation is the project must be new and created after the post date of the challenge. We would, of course, love a link back to this blog if you join in the fun. Don't have a blog? That's okay too! Just upload your creation to an online gallery of your choice and leave the link to that. Make sure you are linking directly to the post not to the entire blog so we can find it. You are also free to enter up to TWO times per challenge. If you create two completely different projects (yes they can both be the same medium, but must be completely different designs) feel free to enter them both to increase your chances of being chosen.

Challenges will be posted each Monday and will close the following Sunday at noon(CST). You are welcome to play along any time and share your link, but entries after the deadline will not be eligible for the contest aspect. For each challenge a winner and 4 honorable mentions will be chosen. Their creations will be showcased and they will be able to display the TOP 5 award. The top winner will have 10 days to claim their prize or it will be passed to one of the others after a random draw.

Thanks for playing along with us!!!!
