Playing in Paradise #53: Musically Inspired

Happy Valentine's Day weekend! Are you like me and wondering how Valentine's Day got to be so big? On the other hand, there is so much inspiration in this holiday of love for the paper crafter!
I lived my teen years in the 90's and the mix tape figured prominently as a "life essential". Even today I get a little sentimental every time a song comes on the radio that was a part of the mix tape my future husband gave me years ago. You know I wore that tape right out! So I thought it would be fun to do a challenge inspired by music.
For my layout I chose the lyrics from the theme song to one my children's favourite movies, Toy Story, to scrap these photos of my girls and their cousin. I used papers and embellishments from October Afternoon's Farmhouse line to coordinate with the colours in the photos - yellow and blue are so hot right now! More close ups on my blog, but don't run off until you've checked out the rest of the projects and heard about what you could win by participating this week!
