Always have...

 A Song In Your He{ART} !!

That's the name of my new challenge blog!
The whole idea of the challenges is to let the song inspire you to get creative. You can create any kind of crafty project. Use the theme of the song, a word or a phrase from the lyrics to get your crafty juices flowing!!!

The first song is


Lyrics to "Unfinished Songs"
So you’re thinking it’s ending
But it’s only just begun
Your whole life is there right
Right in front of you
Life’s a story that is all twisted and turned
All that matters is the lessons we learn

‘Cause we’re all unfinished songs
Waiting for the best part to come along
Hey hey Hey hey
And we’re all pictures that’s drawn
We can be anything we want
Hey hey Hey hey

Now is your time
It’s your life
No one’s living it but you
In your hands is your chance to live the life you choose
Life’s like music
There’s so much still unsung
Make it magic
There’s so much still to come

‘Cause we’re all unfinished songs
Waiting for the best part to come along
Hey hey Hey hey
And we’re all pictures that’s drawn
We can be anything we want
Hey hey Hey hey

You can write a song and write the story
Living all of this life in all its glory
Take the time to make the time to make each moment count
It’s your life It’s your call
Grab the chance
Have it all
You can write a song and write the story
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I don't have a project right now but I will 'cause right now I'm working on my own "story" and grabbing the chance. My whole life is out there in front of me! I can be ANYTHING I WANT TO BE!!!
Check out the challenge blog and play along!!!

...and always keep a song in your He{ART}!!!
