A couple of LOs and a card to share!

I've been participating in the Glee Club challenge over at Soul Scrappers.  So far the challenges have been to create a LO based on Classic Rock for Week 1 challenge where we had to use a Beatles' title and have a feel of the 60s in your LO.  This week is alternative rock and you had to build your LO around a Train title with a funky or grunge feeling to it.  There are also mini challenges and this is where my card comes in.  Please visit Soul Scrappers and join in on the fun the DT has cooked up for you!
The above is based on the Beatles song, Ain't she Sweet.  In keeping with the feel of the 60s, I created the patchwork which is reminiscent of the patchwork skirts worn by women at that time.  Temple was trying on these hats at her favorite store, Justice, which looked pretty retro to me and I thought would work well for this challenge.
 The above is the mini challenge based on the above Beatles challenge where you had to make a card and incorporate some part of the title you used in the main challenge, and it was an easy choice to use Sweetness as it's a nickname that I already called Temple.
The above is based on this week's challenge which is Alternative Rock and you had to choose a song by the Rock Band, Train which happens to be one of my favorite bands.  I chose their song, Ordinary and there's a line in the song that says, "I'm anything but Ordinary," and it was the perfect title for me to use for this LO of Temple!  She recently earned her 1st qtr Academic Excellence award at school, which she has earned every qtr for the last 2 yrs (she's in 2nd grade)!  The big surprise though was she also earned the Principle's Award for best all around student!  Needless to say, she was totally thrilled and we were bursting with pride which is what I expressed in my journaling above.  So I named this LO, You're anything but Ordinary which this proud mommy feels for this child!

So, please visit Soul Scrappers and join in on the fun!

Happy Scrapping!
