Challenge # 146: America's Top 40

I'm so excited to be posting my first challenge here at How Much is Too Much?!
Every Sunday, my local radio station plays old broadcasts of Casey Kasem's American Top 40 radio program. In case you're not familiar, the program would count down the 40 most popular songs in America in any given week. Those 80's songs are a blast from the past for me. (Guess I'm dating myself, huh? LOL)

So for my challenge... I'd like to see you use music note type patterned paper somewhere on your page. Use a song title or lyrics in your title or journaling. Use a number or numbers somewhere on your page. And for the kicker - embellish your page with at least 40 items. (you can include your titlework into this count.. ;0) I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Debbie F: My youngest child started Kindergarten this past week. He was really looking forward to it. I had mixed feelings, since I've had a child home during the day for 13 years! He went the first day very willingly, but after school, he cried because and said, " it's really hard for me - I miss you so much." Of course, I cried too. We talked about how we can spend time together after school, and we're both adjusting. So I used some lyrics from a song by Richard Marx: "I will be right here waiting for you." The envelope is tucked behind the patterned paper and holds hidden journaling from me to my little guy.

Debbi T: This was such a fun challenge! I got lucky and found some paper that had both numbers and musical notes. These photos are from the birthday party my best friend threw me. The guy in the boxers is her son-in-law. (No, he's not a real stripper.) My ribs are still hurting from laughing so hard! I couldn't get any really good pictures because I was cracking up and he kept skipping around. If you're my facebook friend, you can see the video of this--it's hilarious! The photo on the right with me laughing is a screen shot from the video. Thanks, Debbie for the great challenge!

Janet- Thanks for the great challenge- it was a challenge to get everything in but I did it. This is a picture from quite a few years ago of dh and I at the lodge one darn cold evening when we just got there- so layers and layers of clothes to keep us warm and some dancing to make the grandchildren laugh.
PS. It's one of our favorite song also.

Elizabeth: The only music paper I had in my stash was Christmas paper, so I found some pictures that I had not scrapped yet and went to work. Thankfully the title was nice and long and made the 40 items come together quickly ;)

Anna-Karin: This was a lot of fun! I used a bunch of different music papers, music stamps and music chipboard. The title of the layout is a song from an Astrid Lindgren story and the top 10 list is a list of some of the songs I’ve been singing a lot to Anton. The chipboard brackets were flocked and the chipboard notes were painted and covered with Glossy Accents. The house is a Maya Road sheer glued to music paper. The red gear and the title letters were first stamped with a music stamp and then sponged with Distress inks.

Have fun and thanks for playing! Remember that at the end of the week one participant will be featured as our "How Awesome is Too Awesome - Weekly Wow" and will be in the running to win a RAK at the end of the month! Post a link to your layout in the HMITM thread at Two Peas.
