Have you ever been moved by the words of a song? Some of my most favourite layouts that I've made are the ones that were inspired by a song. Maybe music that was playing during the time you took the photos in your layout. Or a song that comes to mind when you look at the photo you are scrapping. Music and lyrics can be a wonderful inspiration for a scrapbook page or scrapping project. Here are some examples of work inspired by lyrics done by our design team girls!
"Under Your Love Spell"
by Tara Orr
Tara said that as soon as she saw the chipboard piece (title chipboard used in this l/o) she had the song 'Under Your Spell' by Candi (a Canadian artist from the '90's) looping through her head, and found herself singing it over and over as she was working on her layout.

Is there a song that you've been meaning to scrap? Do you have a photo that when you look at it a song pops into your head? Why not scrap the lyrics or song title when you create your page with that photo! I was scrapping a few days ago and while I was working on my layout, my youngest daughter was showing me the Colby Cailett video for 'Brighter Than the Sun", I found my layout became sunny and happy just like the song, so I titled my layout like the song and added a few of the lyrics to the page! (You'll have to wait a few days to see this one as it was actually intended for another upcoming blogpost here :) Tell us what song moves you, what words you'd like to scrap, we'd love to hear it!
