This layout was created for a challenge at Scrappin' the Music (#29).
"The song this week is by Brandi Carlile called The Story. Just found this wonderful woman, my sister played this song for me and it is one of those moments when a song hits you in the gut and you have to re-play it a couple of times to make sure you heard everything! I went right out and bought her CD called The Story. LOVE IT! So.... when I'm doing a layout to a song the first thing I do is print off the song lyrics, read them, and then hilight what I love in the song. Then I use that for my Title and journaling. So remember that you can use any part of the song for your inspiration in your layout!"
Brandi Carlisle is from Washington State and has a phenomenal voice. I love this song. I put the lyrics over my face in PSE 5.0. I used a font that would look fuzzy to give an ethereal feeling. Thanks for a super challenge!
