Stary stary night...

A new sketch at Stuck?! plus a new inspiration challenge at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge - what a perfect match :).
Here's Laura's sketch from Stuck?!:
We have two awesome sponsors: ScrapMuach and Creative Embellishments. You can't win unless you play..
The challenge at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge was to scrap a favorite song from our teens, and I chose 'Vincent' by Don Mclean:
I took a photo of my boys, digging stars from a small pool,  in a darkness room. I was at Israel Museum on summer 2012, and there were lots of activities 'in darkness'.
The first lines of this wonderful song were perfect for this lo and for the inspiration board at Craft Hoarders Anonymous:
Like many scrappers, my hoarded item is papers. Of course I'm hoarding more things, like stickers, flowers, buttons etc., but my most hoarded item is papers. I buy them cause I love how they look, and then I find it so hard to use them, cuase I'll waste them  and I'll run out of them LOL. Some of the papers I used on this lo are hoarded for maybe 5 years, but some of them were bought more recently.
I also used a film strip chipboard from Creative Embellishments, and a die-cut stars with my Big Shot.
Here are close-ups on the details:




I'd love to see you play along with us, both on Stuck?! and on AFSC.
Thank you for taking the time and visiting my blog, and I appreciate your comments.

I love this song as well and Vincent Van Gough is one of my favourite artists, if not my most favourite. I really enjoyed listening to the song again and watching the film clip. Love your layout, the stars, the film strip chippy, the colour palette all perfect for your photo and song you chose. Thanks so much for your blog love and becoming a follower.
