View Full Version : Lyrics challenge - June 20th

06-14-2012, 06:42 PM
Hi everyone! I thought I'd invade the space of our wonderful challenge chicks this month and give you all a little something different to play with.

I know for a lot of us scrappers, music can play a big part in the creative process. I don't know how many fellow scrappers I've talked to that say they like to put their earbuds in and listen to their favorite tunes while they're getting their scrap on (or if they're alone, they might be known to blast them from the speakers!).

For this challenge, I want you to use the lyrics from an iconic song somehow in your layout. There are so many ways you can interpret this. You can use elements to represent something from the lyrics, you can use lyrics as your title work, or you can journal the lyrics on your page. Be creative!

Also, "iconic" songs are different for everyone. What's iconic for me and my life might not necessarily be something someone else would think was iconic, but I know it means something to me personally. (Simon & Garfunkel's Feelin' Groovy? No? Anyone?) Feel free to pick a song that's been iconic in your life...this page is for you, not just some challenge!

Here's the page I did with a whole bunch of eNKay Designs' kits. The song I picked was True Colors, made famous by Cyndi Lauper. It's a beautiful song with very powerful lyrics.

Here’s the fine print:

You must use at least 75% Digichick Goodies on your layout to qualify for points.
When you’ve finished your layout, come back to this post and leave a comment with a link to your layout. (Feel free to use our open gallery here (http://www.thedigichick.com/gallery/) at the Digichick if you need a place to upload your layout. We even have a spot just for challenge entries (http://www.thedigichick.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=509)!)
You will earn 1 Point for participating in this challenge.
For more information about our Chickie Points System, please see this thread here (http://www.thedigichick.com/forums/showthread.php?34471-Chickie-Points-System%21).
The deadline for this challenge is June 30, 2012.
