The Surprise is Revealed!!!

I am soooo excited to finally spill the beans!!!   

Scrapping The Music is featured in the March issue of Scrapstreet Magazine!! I hope you will get a chance to check it out - it's a three-page feature (click on the page #s to turn the pages) about what the blog means to us with contributions from our founder Mary and each design team member, along with photos of this week's layouts! Click here to read the article.  This gives you a chance to look into the STM Design Teams hearts!!  It is an awesome article!! I am so honored to be a part of such an amazing team!!!

Our featured song this week is "Say" by John Mayer. It's such a beautiful song, and the lyrics really speak to you right where you are at!!

When I sat down and listened to this song and the lyrics- Say what you Need to Say, it made me think about  those things that I just can't keep quiet about. Those things that I just have to say. I decided to use a picture that was taken of me teaching a Sunday School Class. I am very passionate about working with kids and sharing my faith with them. With that thought this layout was born.  I used a page from an old hymnal for this project.  The song from the hymnal page  is "I Love To Tell the Story"  which was perfect to convey the message of my layout!  I used some Jenni Bowlin and some Basic Grey Papers.  Some vintage book pages stamped with K and Co. stamps, hambly transparencies, Making Memories alpha and Cricut
 Storybook font letters, and some Kaiser Kraft pearls.

Thanks for taking a peek!! I hope you get a chance to join in the fun this week!!!

I am very happy to report that I finished all of Benny's costumes!! He is going to be ready for Friday night's performance.  I am really looking forward to it.  It should be a lot of fun!!!

Well, I am going to have to call it a night!!
I am thoroughly exhausted!!
I wish you a glorious Monday!!!
