Total Eclipse of the Heart!

Looking for the Lasting Memories blog hop? Go HERE!

Time for a new song to get those creative juices flowing- this week the challenge song at Scrap It With a Song is "Total Eclipse of the Heart" by Bonnie Tyler. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this song, and had the perfect picture of my sweet little niece, almost like I had been saving it for this very challenge!

Aren't those eyes fabulous??? I decided on the lyric, "turn around bright eyes" and printed it on a fun graph paper background with jumbo brackets. Added giant hand-drawn scallops- i love the hand-drawn slightly misshapen look! A bit of bright pink pleated fabric, a scalloped circle inked up to hold my polka-dot "Z" along with a sweet little Jenni Bowlin butterfly. Lastly I dressed up my grey cardstock with pain I smeared through a piece of punchinella to make the mesy white dots. Whole thing took less than 30 minutes, which is a challenge fo me!!

You'll have to go check out the rest of the Scrap It With a Song DT's ideas on these lyrics, such varied projects we've all created! Don't forget to share what you've created too, we'd love to see it! =) T
