Gotta love a challenge!



I'm a total sucker for a challenge and that's why I do so many scrapping ones! Helps keep me going! This layout was one I did for the monthly challenge that's going on at Scrapperie. The idea was to do a "superhero" layout however you interpreted that and it had to have a 5X7 picture and hand-written journaling, so this is what came out of that!



Speaking of things coming...THIS showed up today and I can't wait to get going on my Scrapperie kit for November called Rockin' the Casbah! I have idea rolling around in my brain, so let's hope I can find some time to get them on paper!



I caught a few minutes of "The View" this morning and saw the singer Marc Cohn on there and heard about the horrible incident he had with a carjacker shooting him in the head. He's very lucky to have survived, but apparently what came out of the whole ordeal was some new songs. He sang this one on the show today and I thought the words were amazing! The video is from Ellen...

Live Out the String (Marc Cohn)

Maybe life is curious to see what you would do
With the gift of being left alive
Spread the higher purpose
And cut through all the shuck and jive
It’s only natural, maybe superstitious
To try and find the meaning in beating the odds
Cause sometimes you gotta get down on your knees
And thank the whole wide universe of Gods for letting you…

Live out the string
A little longer, boy
Raise your voice and make a joyful noise
Ain’t no guarantee of anything
Live out the string

Now that a meteorite has fallen in the chair
You just got out of to answer the phone
Will you live every moment like it just might be the last
Or will you still just bitch and moan

Fate is kind, fate is cruel, fate is terminally cool
It’s a random interruption in the middle of your groove
But sometime you gotta get down on your knees
And find yourself a deeper groove, yeah…

Live out the string
A little longer boy
Raise your voice and make a joyful noise
Ain’t no guarantee of anything
So live out the string (the string)

Who knows if we got angels on our shoulders
Right now with the devil in the street
Who knows if it means we got more work to do
But hey baby, don’t the air taste sweet

Get down on your knees
Get down on your knees
Live out the string
Live out the string
(yeah-ah, yeah-ah, yeah-ah)

Maybe life is curious to see what you would do
with the gift of being left alive


Well, gotta run because I need to go get Kyle from preschool, but have a wonderful day!
Cheers,
Colleen

Great page and good on you for getting involved in challenges - I've just started getting back into a few here and there . . . it certainly gets you scrapping out of your comfort zone doesn't it?

Thanks for the lovely comments of my blog too!
