Scrapping the Music challenge # 198

Happy May Day!  It's time for a new challenge at Scrapping the Music.  Yay!!!  This week's song, chosen by Michelle, is "Sparkle" by Rubyhorse. If you haven't heard of it, you just have to go to Scrapping the Music and check out the video. 

The lyrics and tune are so happy and wonderful! I just had to scrap photos from our recent Disney trip. The photos were taken at EPCOT - there was a flower and garden show going on and everything looked so creative, colorful and beautiful.

**I used Heather Landry's sketch that I saw over at scrapbook.com - thank you Heather for your inspiration and for sharing it with us!

Check out Heather's blog here!!!

And don't forget the second part of the challenge:  The prompt at Scrapping the Music this week comes from Frauke:  "Who was your favorite singer or group when you were a teenager? Do you still like their music now?"

  Mine most definitely was the Beatles!!! 

Journaling reads: One of my favorite groups as a pre-teen was The Beatles. I loved them for many reasons, one being that my older sister, Cathy, loved them first. I remember watching her with her friends when The Beatles were on TV, and they would literally scream bloody murder! My favorite Beatles’ song was “I Want to Hold Your Hand.” It was The Beatles’ second release after “She Loves You,” and another favorite song, “This Boy,” was on the flip-side of the record, which was a “45.” A favorite memory of mine is winning a dance contest with my girlfriend - we danced “the pony” to “I Want To Hold Your Hand” and won the contest! What FUN and FABULOUS times!! Oh, and I still like to listen to them now!

You have TWO weeks to complete one or both of the challenges.  Scrapping the Music is waiting for you!
And I have more Disney photos to share with you - stay tuned . . .
