Scrap it with a Song: Girls Just Want to Have Fun

This weeks song at Scrap it With a Song is Girls Just Want to Have Fun by Cyndi Lauper. For those of you who read my post from the last time they did Cyndi Lauper you know I cant stand to listen to her voice. It makes my skin crawl. However...I know all the words to this song by heart because I loved the cheesy 80s film Girls Just Want to Have Fun staring Sarah Jessica Parker and Helen Hunt. Seeing that I have all boys you would think I would have a little problem with this one, but I knew exactly what line I was going to use from the get go. In fact I kept these pictures specifically in case this song came up. These are of my now 4 year old Tobin. He looked liked a mini me of my hubby for a long time.

I did have a hard time figuring out what I wanted the layout to look like. I ended up going with the sketch from Practical Scrappers. I turned it on its side and add some things and took some away but it started out as the sketch.


Brown font is from A Childs Year
Blue letters are from my stash
Background paper is My Minds Eye superstar
The yellow star paper is me and Big Ideas value pack from Michaels
I made 2 of the flowers using punches
The rest of the flowers and leaves are making memories
The brads are recollections
Everything else is from my scrap pile or stash

This layout also qualifies for :

Totally Stampalicious: Blue and Yellow
Design Dollies: Blue, Yellow, Brown, White
wee Memories: Punch
Sisterhood of Crafters: childs birth
Paper Play Challenges: Flowers and Bling
Pile It On: Quirkey
