Welcome to the Lyrical Challenge for January.


Since it is the start of a New Year, we will be using a theme of: NEW. It can a new beginning, new hobby, new job.... etc. Find a song with lyrics that help describe what "NEW" you are featuring in your layout.

Remember this is a Lyrical Challenge so you should have some of the lyrics or song title on your page.

Please list the song title and who wrote or preformed it in the gallery description for your page. As a courtesy, we give credit to the author/composer. Thanks.

Can't wait to see the wonderful layouts you will create this month.

The rules for the challenge
(1) Your layout must be unique, and can only be used for this challenge.
(2) Your layout also counts as one entry towards the January Scrappin' 7 Challenge.
(3) Use of GDS products is strongly encouraged and greatly appreciated.
(4) Please post your layout in the Lyrical Challenge Gallery HERE (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=524)
(5) Come back here and post the image of the page you created, and link it to your page in the gallery so we can all leave you some love!

I will have a bonus for all who particiapte in this challenge by posting and linking their creations here. Please be sure to credit the designer's kit/s when you post to the gallery.

This challenge runs through January 31.

Do you all know how to link your images back to the gallery? .. If not, have a look HERE (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/tutorials/GDS_Why_Go_Digital/LinkingAGalleryLayout/LinkingAGalleryLayout.html)

I chose a photo of sunrise to fit the lyrics of the song.

Really looking forward to all your pages and songs this month.

Thanks for this lovely challenge.
I know it is not exactly what you meant with 'new' but when I googled on a song with 'new' in it, I saw this one.
And because I just purchased this beautiful "WorldTravel NewYork" from Keystone Scraps, I hd to make this LO! ;-)

LOL, Els.... It is GREAT.... it has the word "NEW" in it... 'New York, New York'. :laugh: It fact, I had even considered using that song/lyrics if I had not found the one I did.

Love the New York skyline element. Terrific page!

Found the word 'new' in one of my fav songs 'Morning has Broken'. It is on youtube if anyone wants to listen.

Georgeous photo of a sunrise, Glonet! Love that song. Makes you feel so warm and safe inside. Great job on the challenge. So glad you played along with us this month.

The challenge is very timely because I am reminded of a personal commitment I wanted to re-"new". Though the song does not contain the word "new", it speaks of my heart's desire this 2013. Thank you Bright Eyes! :-)

Such a heart-touching page. It is a 're-NEW-al' so certainly fits into this challenge. What a wonderful photo you used. Love the way you curved the title on the page. Fabulous. Thank you so much for joining the challenge this month, maricar_casuga!

Here is my layout (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=115513&title=feeling-good&cat=524)for this challenge.


I picked the song "Feeling good" performed by Michael Buble. In the background I used a photo I took last year on the beach in Kijkduin, near The Hague in the Netherlands.

Ingrid... love the photo. The vivid yellow, blue and red of the sail against the darker blue sky is wonderful. I can almost feel the wind and smell the ocean! Like how you used the photo to fill the whole background with the soft sea-green paper border. Wonderful song and so appropriate for the theme this month. So glad you joined us this month.

Zanitha, you will need to send a "help" ticket to get to the bottom of what is happening with your up-load. Use the "Contact Us" us on the top bar. Hopefully Debra or Diego can get it straightened out for you. Can't wait to see your page.
