Welcome to the Lyrical Challenge for March.


In March, we will be using a theme of anything to do with March, spring, St Patrick's Day or even Easter since it falls on the last Sunday of March this year.

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 March 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 March 31st.

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)

Also... here's (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/tutorials/GDS_Why_Go_Digital/KeywordsAndProductLinks/KeywordsAndProductLinks.html) how to assign keywords to your layouts to give the credit back to the designer.

I decided to use the month of MARCH as my theme for the month. My middle daughter was born in early March. The song "Winds of March" by Journey seem to fit so well.

My comment field will not work, so here is my description:
This is an Easter Song named New Song... Instead of for Christ on Easter;
it is for my sister, Carol, whom has cancer; itís been
in her body now for 2 years.. Just found out @ end of Dec 2012;
Such an difficult Christmas it was, especially for me...! Thank you for the wonderful challenge & for your precious comments-treasured..

My LO is @:

Mary, my heart goes out to you and your sister. The song you chose was so appropriate. One of our daughters-in-law is battling cancer so can understand your pain. The song is full of love and hope for an end to her surffering. <<< hugs >>>

So glad you could join us this month.

ETA: Don't know if you put your title and comments in on the up-load 1st page or not. They will not transfer to the up-load 2nd page. The procedure is to click on the upload file and select your layout from your computer. Click on okay and wait until you reach the 2nd up-load page [the one with the thumbnail on it] to enter the title and comments.

You also can go back to your layout and look under your name for "Edit Photo". Click on that and you can enter your information in the blocks. Click 'okay' and it will update the gallery information.

Hivart, what a delightful page. Love the photo of the meadow and the wonderful flower with the butterfly. Georgous clustering. So glad you like the Alex Brush font... I love its curves and sweepting look, too. Great to have you join us this month.

Okay, Spring makes me think of the sunshine finally coming out to stay, so I chose Good Day Sunshine by the Beatles.

Here's my page for this challenge. The theme is Easter and the song is "Here Comes Peter Cottontail."
I used Funny EasterLand (https://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_dnld_info&cPath=29_211&products_id=13509)for this challenge


Thanks for this fun challenge!

Jakrn, that is the most adorable page. Used to sing 'Peter Cottontail" to my kids and grandkits. Love all those wonderful photos. So glad you joined us.

Thanks for the link to the kit in the store... but you also need to link your photo here to the gallery either with a word link or to the photo itself.

Snow in Spring (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=117616&title=snow-in-spring&cat=524)

I used the lyrics from Somewhere by Love by Jerry Vale.
I just had to scrap a pic from the snow outside today. Poor little bushes are covered in Snow.


03-24-2013, 02:47 PM
Here is my contribution. I used the coordinating kits Bloom Where You Are Planted by Created by Jill Scraps and Bloom Where You're Planted by Keystone Scraps.

The song lyrics are from Easter Parade by Irving Berlin.

Selrahcnewrad, what a wonderful page! Love that vintage photo. What could be more spring time for a song than "Easter Parade"... :laugh: So glad you are joining in on the challenges. Great to have you here.

I noticed you didn't link your page to the gallery. If you need help with that, let me know. We want everyone to be able to go to right gallery and leave some love for all our players. {See post #1 in this thread on how to link pages to words.}

Great job on fixing the link, Selrahcnewrad! Thanks so much as it makes it easier for others to find it, too. :love-smiley-011:
