This challenge is basically a combination of the Music Challenge and the Gallery Inspiration Challenge!

The purpose of the challenge is to create a layout using something from a song, whether it is all or part of a title, lyrics or artist name. The fun part is you do not get to chose your own song - the person who signs up after you does!

So this is how it goes:
Sign up for the challenge
The person who signs up after you will pick a song for you to use. When picking a song please list the song name and the artist/group it is by so people can look up the lyrics. The exception would be if you chose a song like “Happy Birthday” or something where there is not necessarily a certain artist and everyone knows the words!
You then select a song for the person who has signed up before you. In order to play you must chose a song within 24 hours of signing up please!
The first person to sign up will pick a song for me. I will pick a song for the last person!
Create a layout (layouts only please but can be any size!) using something from your song as inspiration! Can be as little as one key word or the whole song!

Please include public embedding and leave love as much as you can!

Dates:
Signups will continue through until February 5th - ***IF YOU SIGNED UP FOR JANUARY YOU MUST COMPLETE YOUR JANUARY LAYOUT BY FEBRUARY 5TH BEFORE SIGNING UP FOR FEBRUARY!!!!***

**If you complete your layout before signups are closed you are able to sign up for a second song if you wish!

Twist #1: Pick a song that reminds you of someone you love - doesn’t have to be a “love song” - it just has to remind you of a loved one in some way.
Twist #2: Hearts two ways (e.g., die cut heart and stamped heart, sticker heart and heart shaped button, heart patterned paper and wooden heart, etc)

Random.org will chose a winner from the previous month on the 5th - that person can pick a Bonus song that anyone is free to complete throughout the month!


LINKING LAYOUTS TO THE THREAD:
1. Go to the layout in your gallery.
2. Go to the Share section on the right-hand side and click on ‘Link/Embed Image'.
3. Click on 'IMG code' button.
4. Copy and paste the code which starts [url...] into the forum thread.

ALLOWING PUBLIC EMBEDDING:
1. Go to the layout in your gallery.
2. Click on 'Edit Image' tab at the top on the left side of the layout.
3. Scroll down to the bottom left side.
Check the box that says, ‘Allow Public Embedding’.

I'm in.
Right now, my husband's favorite song is Ed Sheran's "Perfect." I find it sweet because this isn't my husband's type of music at all and he hardly ever expresses himself. Every time he comes across this song, he turns it up and sings it. So now, whenever I hear this song, I think of him and smile.

Actually it's not sappy at all!

It's actually kinda funny the first song that popped in my mind:
"I Hate Everything About You"
by Three Days Grace

It's a joke between my husband and I that that is his song for me!

I'm In! It's my 30 year Anniversary this year (May) and my song always makes me think of my Hubby ....
"Still the One" by Orleans

Still the One
Orleans
We've been together since way back when
Sometimes I never want to see you again
But I want you to know, after all these years
You're still the one I want whisperin' in my ear
You're still the one -- I want to talk to in bed
Still the one -- that turns my head
We're still having fun, and you're still the one
I looked at your face every day
But I never saw it 'til I went away
When winter came, I just wanted to go (wanted to go)
Deep in the desert, I longed for the snow
You're still the one -- that makes me laugh
Still the one -- that's my better half
We're still having fun, and you're still the one
You're still the one -- that makes me strong
Still the one -- I want to take along
We're still having fun, and you're still the one (yes you are)
Changing, our love is going gold
Even though we grow old, it grows new
You're still the one -- that I love to touch
Still the one -- and I can't get enough
We're still having fun, and you're still the one
You're still the one -- who can scratch my itch
Still the one -- and I wouldn't switch
We're still having fun, and you're still the one
You are still the one -- that makes me shout
Still the one -- that I dream about
We're still having fun, and you're still the one
You're still the one, yeah still the one
We're still having fun, and you're still the one
Songwriters: Johanna Hall / Johanna D Hall / John Hall / John J Hall

I'm in...

Be back in a minute with a song.

ok, here it is: Unchained Melody by the Righteous Brothers:

Whoa, my love
My darling
I've hungered for your touch
A long, lonely time

And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?

I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love to me

Lonely rivers flow to the sea, to the sea
To the open arms of the sea
Lonely rivers sigh, "Wait for me, wait for me
I'll be coming home, wait for me"

Whoa, my love
My darling
I've hungered, hungered for your touch
A long, lonely time

And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?

I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love to me

This was my parents' first dance song at their wedding in 1989. They're celebrating 29 yes in April.

I'm here. This is THE song that reminds me of my first husband. It's playing on the radio as I type this, so it's fresh.

*****

In the Arms of an Angel
Sarah McLachlan


Spend all your time waiting
For that second chance
For a break that would make it okay

There's always some reason
To feel not good enough
And it's hard at the end of the day

I need some distraction
Or a beautiful release
Memories seep from my veins
Let me be empty
Oh and weightless and maybe
I'll find some peace tonight

In the arms of the angel
Fly away from here
From this dark cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
You're in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here


So tired of the straight line
And everywhere you turn
There's vultures and thieves at your back
The storm keeps on twisting
Keep on building the lies
That you make up for all that you lack

It don't make no difference
Escaping one last time
It's easier to believe
In this sweet madness
Oh this glorious sadness
That brings me to my knees

In the arms of the angel
Fly away from here
From this dark cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
You're in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here

You're in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here

Here's my choice for this month:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T3PDbvm7GtI

Lorrie Morgan - If You Came Back From Heaven

I wouldn't know what to say
I wouldn't know what to do
If you came back from Heaven
And I could look at you
Would I fumble for the words
Would I be a little shy
Would I bust right out with laughter
Or break right down and cry
Oh, if you came back from Heaven
Would it be like it was then
Could we just pick up where we left off
And try it all again
Oh, if you came back from Heaven
It would freeze me in my tracks
And I hope God knows, if He let you go
I'd never send you back
Do your kisses feel the same
Do you still have the same touch
And will you whisper softly
'Cause you've missed me so much
Have you heard all my prayers
When I laid down at night
And did you feel my body
When I held your pillow tight
Oh, if you came back from Heaven
Would it be like it was then
Could we just pick up where we left off
And try it all again
Oh, if you came back from Heaven
It would freeze me in my tracks
And I hope God knows, if He let you go
I'd never send you back
And if, God forbid,
You leave this earth
Again while I sleep
I hope He knows, if you go
You'll be bringing me
Oh, if you came back from Heaven
Would it be like it was then
Could we just pick up where we left off
And try it all again
Oh, if you came back from Heaven
It would freeze me in my tracks
And I hope God knows, if He let you go
I'd never send you back
I hope God knows, if He let you go
I'd never send you back

Of course this reminds me of all my lost loved ones (specially one...)

Updated to here! Stuck home on Day 3 of a stomach bug. Ugh! Seems in January I am trying out all the sicknesses. First strep (after also having that in December), then sinus cold and now stomach bug. Bleh!

I'd like to play this month...deosn't seem like too much is going on...I might have 2 weekends home!
My song is "Dear Prudence" by the Beatles...my sister's name and I do love her!

Dear Prudence
The Beatles

Dear Prudence, won't you come out to play
Dear Prudence, greet the brand new day
The sun is up, the sky is blue
It's beautiful and so are you
Dear Prudence won't you come out and play

Dear Prudence open up your eyes
Dear Prudence see the sunny skies
The wind is low the birds will sing
that you are part of everything
Dear Prudence won't you open up your eyes?

Look around round
Look around round round
Look around

Dear Prudence let me see you smile
Dear Prudence like a little child
The clouds will be a daisy chain
So let me see you smile again
Dear Prudence won't you let me see you smile?

I would love to play again this month! I just heard a new song on the way home today that reminds me of my love (especially the chorus)...So my song is "You Make it Easy" by Jason Aldean.

[Verse 1]
Like a rainy Sunday morning makes me want to stay in bed
Twisted up all day long
You're my inspiration, girl
You take me places, put the words right into these songs

[Bridge]
Stealing kisses under cover, babe
See forever when I see your face
And I swear God made you for me

[Chorus]
You make it easy loving up on you
Make it easy with every little thing you do
You're my sunshine in the darkest days
My better half, my saving grace
You make me who I wanna be
You make it easy

[Verse 2]
You took all my rough around the edges
Never let it ruffle up your feathers, angel
Yeah I'm down for life, you got me wrapped around your finger
And I like it just in case you can't tell

[Chorus]
You make it easy loving up on you
Make it easy with every little thing you do
You're my sunshine in the darkest days
My better half, my saving grace
You make me who I wanna be
You make it easy

Me, too, please. I looks like I'm following Erin.

This was one of my sister's favorite songs, and I can never hear it without thinking of her.

Wind Beneath My Wings
Bette Midler

Ohhhh, oh, oh, oh, ohhh.
It must have been cold there in my shadow,
To never have sunlight on your face.
You were content to let me shine, that's your way.
You always walked a step behind.

So I was the one with all the glory,
While you were the one with all the strength.
A beautiful face without a name for so long.
A beautiful smile to hide the pain.

Did you ever know that you're my hero,
And everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
For you are the wind beneath my wings.

It might have appeared to go unnoticed,
But I've got it all here in my heart.
I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know it.
I would be nothing without you.

Did you ever know that you're my hero?
You're everything I wish I could be.
I could fly higher than an eagle,
For you are the wind beneath my wings.

Did I ever tell you you're my hero?
You're everything, everything I wish I could be.
Oh, and I, I could fly higher than an eagle,
For you are the wind beneath my wings,
'cause you are the wind beneath my wings.

Oh, the wind beneath my wings.
You, you, you, you are the wind beneath my wings.
Fly, fly, fly away. You let me fly so high.
Oh, you, you, you, the wind beneath my wings.
Oh, you, you, you, the wind beneath my wings.

Fly, fly, fly high against the sky,
So high I almost touch the sky.
Thank you, thank you,
Thank God for you, the wind beneath my wings.

There are a bunch of schools around us that are closed due to so many kids being sick, ugh.

I sure hope you are feeling better soon. We had a stomach bug take over our whole family during Christmas break. My granddaughter gave it to us before leaving to go to Texas. It was rough. I hope it runs its course faster for you than it did for us.

Artesha, looks like I'll be choosing a song for you! I'll be back with it shortly!

Okay...pulling out a real oldie! Captain & Tenile sang Love Will Keep Us Together. My childhood friend Crystal Morris and I had a whole dance routine we would do while singing this song. Brings back wonderful memories!!

My song for Amie is When You're Gone by Avril Lavigne https://play.google.com/music/preview/Tva24zk swvubt4z2w...

This song reminds me of the time when DH was overseas from 2008-2011, he sung it to me many times over the phone.

One of my childhood classmates dedicated this song to her husband on FB on their 19th wedding Anniversary last year. I quickly fell in love with it.

I Do (Cherish You) by Mark Wills

All I am, all I'll be
Everything in this world, all that I'll ever need
Is in your eyes, shining at me
When you smile I can feel all my passion unfolding

Your hand brushes mine
And a thousand sensations seduce me 'cause I

I do, cherish you
For the rest of my life
You don't have to think twice
I will, love you still, from the depths of my soul

It's beyond my control
I've waited so long to say this to you
If you're asking do I love you this much, I do

In my world before you
I lived outside my emotions
Didn't know where I was going
Until that day I found you
How you opened my life to a new paradise

In a world torn by change
Still with all of my heart, until my dying day

I do, cherish you
For the rest of my life
You don't have to think twice
I will, love you still, from the depths of my soul

It's beyond my control
I've waited so long to say this to you
If you're asking do I love you this much, yes I do

I've waited so long to say this to you
So, if you're asking if I love you this much, I do

I'm in please. Be back with a song soon.

Okay my song is Umbrella by Rhianna

Umbrella
Rihanna

Uh huh, uh huh
Yeah, Rihanna
Uh huh, uh huh
Good girl gone bad
Uh huh, uh huh
Take three, action
Uh huh, uh huh, ho

No clouds in my stones
Let it rain; I hydroplane into fame
Comin' down at the Dow Jones
When the clouds come, we gone
We Rocafella
We fly higher than weather
In G5's or better
You know me
In anticipation for precipitation stack chips for the rainy day
Rain man is back with little Ms. Sunshine
Rihanna, where you at?

You have my heart, and we'll never be worlds apart
Maybe in magazines, but you'll still be my star
Baby, 'cause in the dark
You can't see shiny cars
And that's when you need me there
With you I'll always share
Because







When the sun shines, we shine together
Told you I'll be here forever
Said I'll always be your friend
Took an oath that I'm a stick it out till the end
Now that it's raining more than ever
Know that we still have each other
You can stand under my umbrella
You can stand under my umbrella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh
Under my umbrella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh
Under my umbrella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh
Under my umbrella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh

These fancy things will never come in between
You're part of my entity, here for infinity
When the world has took its part
When the world has dealt its cards
If the hand is hard, together we'll mend your heart
Because

You can run into my arms
It's okay, don't be alarmed
(Come into me)
(There's no distance in between our love)
So I'm gonna let the rain pour
I'll be all you need and more
Because

It's raining, raining
Ooh, baby, it's raining, raining
Baby, come into me
Come into me
It's raining, raining
Ooh, baby, it's raining, raining
You can always come into me
Come into me
It's pouring rain
It's pouring rain
Come into me
Come into me
It's pouring rain
It's pouring rain

Doreen just answered me in another thread and said it is part of the anti-spam stuff on the site now and it affects back to back posting. I'll have to try again later tonight and try to make it the first thing I do! I still have three challenges to post!

My song for Amie is When You're Gone by Avril Lavigne https://play.google.com/music/preview/Tva24zk swvubt4z2w...

This song reminds me of the time when DH was overseas from 2008-2011, he sung it to me many times over the phone.



Great song choice! Lots of possibilities!!

My song was "I Hate Everything About You" by Three Days Grace. I obviously changed the title from "hate" to "love" and I used the lyric "Why do I love" as the first line in my journaling.

I also did the twist - I used paper with hearts on it and cut out a few hearts as well:

I Love Everything About You By Mrsmiller

I'd like to pick another song as well. I don't know who it's for but I pick "Champion" by Fall Out Boy. My husband is having such a hard time getting through the death of his mom and this cd just came out last week (although this particular single came out right around the time my mother-in-law passed) and the lyrics "If I can live through this, I can live through anything" are really resonating with him right now. It's hard to watch someone go through this type of thing and not be able to help. Somehow music always makes it better.

Any other month I would, but our house "should" be finished tomorrow and i have a lot of "moving" to do. We have lived upstairs for the past 5 months and now I get to start bringing thing down out of the attic. I'm so excited that I get a real scrap space soon.

Welcome Bev! Glad to have you!

Sign ups are closed so I am picking for you. I pick "When You're Gone" by Bryan Adams
https://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/bryanadams/whe nyouregon...

Hubby was away a lot when we first started dating due to completing his engineering internship so this song always made me think of him even though the lyrics don't 100% apply to a relationship that is happening!

Updated! My dh is on the road for work tonight so I was looking forward to scrapping after the kids were in bed but I am mentally drained from my first day with a physio student today. I've had students before but forgot how exhausting it is at the start explaining every single thing you do! Snuggled under a blankie, hot pack on my neck, doggie next to me with Nashville on Netflix it is!

Okay I'm being a rebel and doing the bonus song FIRST!

And I promise I did not have this layout in mind when I chose the bonus song. The idea for this layout, as in using the bonus song for it, did not come to me until yesterday at work...
I then made sure to get it scrapped last night before I lost my inspiration.
I used the lyrics "Whatta Mighty Good..." in my sub-title

Hi Ladies...Lyn gave me "The Wind Beneath My Wings"...while I often think of this song as one that reminds people of a loved one who has passed on, I realized as I re-read the lyrics that it can also be about someone who continuously lifts you up, in very unselfish ways. That's why it was perfect for my love TFL!

Happy Belated Birthday, Shannon!

My song was "Still the One" by Orleans. My dad used to play this song a lot and I was going to do a page about my parents. This song reminds me of them. I realized I didn't have a picture of them, so I used one of me, hubby and Addy from Xmas morning and used "having fun" as my title. I did do the twist, i stamped hearts and I drew 2 on the border, but apparently, I cut half of them off when I scanned it. Oh well.

My song -
Having Fun By Monique_McCoy

Bonus Song (I used the word "love" you'll find it in the quote under her picture) -
