And here is my DT Inspiration Layout!
This is a photo some of my scrappy friends and I at a weekend crop that had a a Mardi Gras Theme!  I so look forward to and enjoy these weekends with my friends. We always have a great time!!

For the Challenge YOUrself Mood Board, I used the colors, Blue, Yellow and Green, in my paper and embellishment selection. I also added a Yellow Feather, and the Mardi Gras themed photo and the date it was taken, are also references to SPRING!

For the Scrap it with a Song Challenge, I selected the song "Best Day of My Life," because every day, and any time spent laughing and scrapping with my creative friends is a "BEST DAY!"  
Here are some close ups for you:
Glitter and Feathers!!! OH MY!!

LOVIN' this BoBunny Caribbean Glitter Paste !!!  I just spread it on with a plastic knife - Love this look!  What do you think?  FUN HUH??!!

I took this plain Heidi Swapp tag, and used Ranger Distress Ink to make it match and used it as my title.  I think it worked perfectly for the title of the layout, and for the song challenge too!!

SO MUCH FUN!!

LOVE THESE GIRLS!! ( that's me in the green mask LOL! )

I hope you will join us and DOUBLE your FUN and CREATIVITY with this combined Challenge!
Check out all the Rules and Inspiration over at the Challenge YOUrself Blog, and the Scrap It With A Song Blog - and play along!!  Happy Scrappin!

Song component Lyric for : "Best Day of My Life"
I had a dream so big and loud
I jumped so high I touched the clouds
Wo-o-o-o-o-oh, wo-o-o-o-o-oh
I stretched my hands out to the sky
We danced with monsters through the night
Wo-o-o-o-o-oh, wo-o-o-o-o-oh
I'm never gonna look back
Woah, never gonna give it up
No, please don't wake me now
This is gonna be the best day of my life
My li-i-i-i-i-ife
This is gonna be the best day of my life
My li-i-i-i-i-ife
I howled at the moon with friends
And then the sun came crashing in
Wo-o-o-o-o-oh, wo-o-o-o-o-oh
But all the possibilities
No limits just epiphanies
Wo-o-o-o-o-oh, wo-o-o-o-o-oh
I'm never gonna look back
Woah, never gonna give it up
No, just don't wake me now
This is gonna be the best day of my life
My li-i-i-i-i-ife
This is gonna be the best day of my life
My li-i-i-i-i-ife
I hear it calling outside my window
I feel it in my soul (soul)
The stars were burning so bright
The sun was out 'til midnight
I say we lose control (control)
This is gonna be the best day of my life
My li-i-i-i-i-ife
This is gonna be the best day of my life
My li-i-i-i-i-ife
This is gonna be, this is gonna be, this is gonna be
The best day of my life
Everything is looking up, everybody up now
This is gonna be the best day of my life
My li-i-i-i-i-ife
