Scrapping the Music Challenge #199 and the debut of MMD Divas!

Scrapping the Music's Challenge #199 is here!  Hurray!  This week's song is "Golden Years" by David Bowie from the movie "A Night's Tale."
I was really inspired by the lyrics - here is the page I created:

The photo was taken on Anne's 9th birthday!  I hope she will always:  "never look back, walk tall, act fine!"

The second part of the challenge is the prompt that I suggested!  Yep, it was me!!!!!
Do you recall a movie where the music really moved you? Scrap about the music and/or the movie.

There wasn't a doubt in my mind what move I was going to scrap about:  "Two for the Road." 

My journaling reads as follows:  One of my favorite actresses is Audrey Hepburn, and one of my favorite movies of hers is "Two for the Road," a movie depicting a couple's relationship over the span of 12 years. I think the reason why I love the movie so much is the amazing, bittersweet, and beautiful musical score by Henry Mancini. The music is what made the movie so perfect for me!

And last but not least, I am now a part of a very creative design team at Heather Landry's blog.
You can check out The Miracles Mommas Divas at Heather's blog here:

She has been creating sketches for years, but has recently asked us to help her scrap her sketches.  YAY!!!!  This is going to be so much fun!  I have already met so many great scrappers there!
Here is sketch #17:

And my layout entitled "Butterflies are free & so are we":

I used photos of the butterfly bush that my twin sister, Karen, and I, planted in memory of my sister, Cathy!  It was a therapeutic layout for me to make!!!!  I love that about scrapping.

Heathers sketches are always so creative!  If you are into digital scrapping, you can download a digi version at her blog, too!

So, why don't you head over to Scrapping the Music and check out this week's challenges.  You have two to choose from, and two weeks to do them!!! 

And check out Miracles Momma Designs's sketches, too!  The design team's layouts are awesome!!!
