I am so excited to participate in this wonderful hop!! Our task was to create a project that was inspired by a song by The Beatles (photo: public domain). I know that I am musical (singing and playing instruments)...but I didn't know much about The Beatles. I have really enjoyed listening to them while working on these projects:}
Anyway...I had Trav put on some Beatles music while we thought about what to create. This first card was inspired by the song, "I Want To Hold Your Hand". The lyrics that I kept singing tonight before/during/after dinner were "I want to hold your haaaaaaand. I want to hold your hand!" I also used the Sketchy Thursday 2nd Chance Challenge for my LO. I have to admit that Trav thought of which stamps to use and what it should say! So crafty, he is!! Supplies used can be found at The Paper Maniac store:: K & Company DP; Hero Arts, woodland stamps $14.99; Stazon, Timber Brown $7.99; Mini Pop Dots $2.49; other: glue stick, Cricut, scrap paper.
My second card was inspired by the song, "Hello Goodbye". I forgot that they sang that--and when I went through the list of song titles...I instantly sketched out my card LO. I love how simple it is! I also love that the two colors for the four arrows are contrasting colors (just like the words of the song, "I say, "Yes"...you say, "No"...I say "High"...you say, "Low".....You say, "Goodbye" and I say, "Hello Hello Hello!"). Supplies can be found at The Paper Maniac store:: American Crafts, green DP $0.29; Bazzil 8.5x11 Smoothies Multipacks, Currant/Blackberry/Pineapple $5.00 each; Stazon, Jet Black $7.99; Tombow, Perm. Adhesive $5.99; Mini Pop Dots $2.49; other: Cricut, glue stick, Gelly pen (black).
My last card was inspired by the song, "8 Days a Week". I was trying to think of what the eighth day would be called if I made a calendar....I couldn't think of anything funny....so I made a card with all the days of the week (correct names) and then another box with the lyrics, "8 days a week..." I love how simple this card is too! I could use this for any day to tell Trav how much I love him--LOVE it! Supplies can be found at The Paper Maniac store:: Bazzil (Currant/Blackberry) $5.00 each; Glossy Accents $5.99; Distress Ink $4.99; other: glue stick, DP (random scraps).
