My LO for Songbirds Scraps!

Check out the newest challenge at the brandnew challenge site Songbirds Scraps! They will be posting 2 challenges a month, and there are beautiful prizes to be won, so do join in the fun!! All the members of the CT did their best to provide examples to inspire you to give this challenge a try. I already showed you some sneak peeks of mine, here's the LO in full:


Because of the lyrics, my first thought was to make a very romantic LO ... but as usual, it didn't turn out at all as I had envisioned it in my mind ... The word "lucky" made me think of playing cards, bingo cards, four-leaf clovers (I know I know, they're actually three-leaf clovers but never mind LOL). And of course, my husband being my best friend, I wanted to make a LO about us, but then I found these wonderful pics of my parents, which I thought were perfect for both the love as the friend part, so I decided to give those a try. Once I had made up my mind about the pictures and the embellies, I went through my paper stack, and no matter how hard I tried, I kept reaching for these rather funky papers in stead of the romantic ones ... it was like I didn't have a choice really, my mind was made up for me.
After putting everything in it's place, I felt something was still missing, so I decided to stitch, mimicking the pattern of the papers. That made a huge difference to the page.

I hope you like it, TFL!
