Hello! It's time for December's challenge! :)

Good Morning everyone! It's my turn to share my interpretation of this month's challenge, as set by the lovely Liz!

We would love to see your interpretation of the song 'Turn, Turn, Turn (to everything there is a Season) by the Byrds. You can find the full lyrics @

Your Layout must include the following:

1. Photo 5x7";
2. Clock/s in any form;
3. Cogs;
4. A musical element;
5. Use of either the title or lyrics from this song.

Here is my take on the challenge...

I've used Kaisercraft's "Sweet Nothings" collection for my layout - they have such a timeless appeal! Perfect for this challenge!

So on my layout I've covered all the criteria - I've included a 5"x7" photo (plus another photo), a clock (stamped and cut out)...

BTW - Isn't that rosette trim delightful? It's by Green Tara and you can check it out right here! I've tied a knot in mine and stapled it onto my layout. :)

Here are my cogs! They are A2Z Scraplets Nested Chipboard Cogs. They are so cool! You get SO MANY in one pack (I didn't use them all... not by a long shot!). Here I've separated the cogs from each other and misted each alternating cog in Tattered Angels Glimmermist in Coffee Shop. Then I've simply "re-nested" them together, doodled around the edges for further definition, and stuck a cut-out shape from the Kaiser pp in the middle.

My musical element is my music sheet pp by Kaisercraft (also from the abovementioned collection - Sweet Nothings)

My title is from the song's lyrics... "A time to laugh" - which fit my photos perfectly!

Lastly, I HAD FUN!!! LOL! :D

Now for the card challenge!

The criteria is:

1. Use your favourite song lyrics
2. Include some sewing
3. Brads
4. Musical element

... and once again - fun! :)

Here's my card...

My card is based on the Faith Evan's Song "I Love You", I've hand stitched some twine at the top left, I've put brads in the centre of the abovementioned rosettes (I've simply cut them from the trim to make separate flowers) and YES! I did have fun once again! :D

So that's it from me today, until next time! Looking forward to seeing your wonderful interpretations of this challenge in our gallery!

Happy scrapping!
