Surround Yourself with Music at the Path of Positivity Challenge Blog

Today I have TWO projects to showcase for my DT make for the Path of Positivity. When the optional challenge has to do with MUSIC, I can get easily inspired. For the first:
Pat here with scrapbook layout for this month's Surround Yourself with Music challenge theme over at the Path of Positivity Challenge Blog. I've been on a leave of absence, but managed to create one of several pages for my 25th Anniversary layout (better late than never).
I was inspired to (finally) create my layout because of the beautiful music I fell in love with while vacationing in the Islands. It's funny how just one song can bring back a thousand memories. That's why music is so important in my life, especially now. I recently lost my hubby, so when a "slack key guitar song" pops up on my iPod, I am flooded with memories of our dream vacation together. I can almost feel the ocean breezes caressing my cheeks and hear the waves lapping at the shore, while Bill and I walked hand in hand along the beaches.
So, of course I played my Hawaiian music while creating the first of several scrapbook pages using digi images from one of this month's sponsors, Imagine That! Digis by Kris. The images include Hula Girl and the Aloha sentient from the Hula Girl set and Peacock Spread from the Pretty Peacocks set.

Challenges I am entering:
Love to Scrap - ANything Goes

On to the SECOND:
I love this digi image from POP's second guest sponsor, Limited Runs. It's called Juggling Snowman. As for me, I can't juggle to save my life, but I've always dreamed I could. My snowman here is a pro, and is showing off on my card. I colored him with Copics, and popped him onto a beautiful background paper from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles from her Snowfest Paper Kit. The sentiment is also from DDD.

All the challenges at the Path of Positivity are Anything Goes, but we also offer an optional theme. This month we want to know, "How does MUSIC influence your life or inspire your art?"

If you would like a chance to win the prize for the Most Inspirational Creation, Choose a song that inspires positivity in you and share the song (or music genre) and the inspired project with us! We can't wait to feel the upbeat vibes you have to share with us!

If you do follow the optional theme, be sure to add FT after your name so that we include you in the draw for the prize. We also ask that you please leave a comment letting us know how your creation relates to the concept of music and what you learned about yourself along the way, if it isn't clearly written somewhere else in your post. 

In order to be considered eligible for this month's prizes, ALL creations must be positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some nature. You don't need to follow the optional theme if you simply want to have a chance at the Random Draw prize of a $10 gift certificate from Imagine That Digistamp, one of our sponsors this month. You only need to follow the theme if you want a chance to win this month's sponsored prize of a $10 gift certificate from Limited Runs, provided by the second of our guest sponsors this month.

The icy blues are the perfect color combo for this image. The snowflake embellishments are a great finishing touch.
