A Scraphappy Southernbelle

Tuesday, October 21, 2008


Hello all! Hope you are doing well today. I did this LO for the mini crop we are having at Just Scrappin'. The challenge was to use cardboard on your LO. This is the first time I have ever used cardboard and I have to say I am a fan! I love the rough texture it gives. I was inspired to do this LO by one of my fave songs, "Anyway" by Martina McBride. The lyrics really speak to me personally. I printed up the lyrics onto vellum and attached them to cardstock. I also incorporated some flowers and brads. I used the cricut Storybook cartridge and Cuttin Up cartridge for the lettering. The journaling reads:

You can spend your whole life buildin'
Somethin' for nothin'
One storm can come and blow it all away
Build it anyway

You can chase a dream
That seems so out of reach
And you know it might not ever come your way
Dream it anyway

This world's gone crazy and it's hard to believe
That tomorrow will be better than today
Believe it anyway

You can love someone with all your heart
For all the right reasons
And in a moment they can choose to walk away
Love 'em anyway

You can pour your soul out singin'
A song you believe in
That tomorrow they'll forget you ever sang
Sing it anyway

God is great, but sometimes life ain't good
When I pray it doesn't always turn out like I think it should
But I do it anyway

I really enjoyed doing this LO. I am trying to scrap more on a personal leval with some of my LO's. So I hope some of that comes through too. Thanks for looking. Hugs!

Pin It!
