Welcome to the monthly Music Challenge for December 2013.

One of my favorite inspirations for scrapbooking is music. I am constantly jotting down song lyrics to use on layouts.

This challenge will have four categories, each one with an optional twist. Complete as many as you like each month. You cannot use the same layout for more than one music category but feel free to combine with any other challenges on this site or other sites. One or two page layouts are fine 8x8 or larger, digital or traditional. Only layouts created and uploaded between December 1st and 31st, 2013 will apply.

At the end of the month, I will ask you to vote for your top favorite from each category. You will receive a vote for each of your LO's just for voting and receive an additional vote for each twist completed. I will create a poll with the top vote-getters from each category so we can choose an overall winner to whom I will send a small RAK. Anyone who completes all four categories with all four twists will also receive a small RAK.

Leave as much love as you can - we all appreciate it!

Please link your layouts to the thread and allow public embedding so I can update the front page (See instructions below)

Category One: Lyrics
Use all or part of a song lyric on your layout. Can be in title or journalling - just indicate where if it is not obvious. Tell us what the song is.

Category Two: Song Title
Use all or part of a song title on your layout. Can be in title or journalling - just indicate where if it is not obvious. Tell us what the song is.

category 1 - lyrics. No twist though.
the title of my LO came from the lyrics of the 1971 Rare Earth song "I just want to celebrate". (geeze that makes me feel REALLY old today for some reason.)
I just want to celebrate By Happy Go Lucky

Hi Lynne - yes there will be one for January! I am about to put it up now. I have the front updated here for December so if everyone could please send me their top ONE vote from EACH category that would be great! We only have one entry for category four this month so that one automatically will be entered for the poll. You have until the evening of the 3rd to send me your votes and then I will do the poll.
