TGF Heart Journaling--week 22

Hi!  It's week 22 of TGF's Heart Journaling.  The theme this week is music and to create a page based on your favorite song/tune.  Um, okay, I had just made one last week on music too so I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do with this one.  I started going through You Tube and listing all the songs I love and basically I was going to just make a giant list of my favorite songs.  But then OMD's If You Leave from Pretty in Pink just popped into my head and that was my inspiration for my page.  I love that song and the movie because I was such a crazy Andrew McCarthy fan.  But you know the book that the movie is based on doesn't end the same as in the movie?  Talk about disappointed when I read the book after watching the movie.  Like what the heck?!  Andie doesn't live happily ever after with Blane?  Well, back to my page.

I used Miss Anya and My Guy Ian to represent Andie and Blane cause that's the way it should be.  I found some music paper and wrote some of the lyrics to the song and added stickers for the title.  It's a bit light.  I sprayed some shimmer spritz to make the page all sparkle-ly.  

A close up of the pair. 

I had a journaling partner tonight.  My youngest colored his Ian to "copy" me.  Hehe.  Then he cut and glued some papers and ribbon too.  He was really happy his page got some shiny spritz too.  Oh, and he even tried to distress his pages with my inkpad.  He makes me laugh.  I think he'll like that I posted his page on the computer.

On a side note, he really liked the little abc flashcards I made for him.  Though I think I should include more clear pages so we don't have to keep changing the pages around.  And should use alphabets without serifs.  You should see how he tries to make those finishing lines on the letters too.  It's too funny so I have to tell him to leave those out.  But it's a nice size for his little hands.  He asked me why he couldn't write on the cardstock itself.  Almost had a heart attack.  Um, cause Mommy worked really hard on those so please don't scribble on all the pictures.  I'll see how long that lasts.

Thanks for reading!

I didn't know the movie was based on a book. Cute layout! Neat sparkles. I like R's layout, cracks me up that he used the bar code scraps. He colors so nicely! It even matches your Ian down to the socks!
