Pick a Beetle song and use something from it to inspire you to create a layout or a project. Post the results in the Challenge Gallery.

I already have an idea. Do you?

Val, I thought the same thing as soon as I saw the title! LOL! You're not the only anal one around here.

Now, off to browse thru the lyrics to see what strikes a chord...LOL! I'm so punny! (Sorry, couldn't resist! ;))

Edited to say: Wow. Ya know, when you haven't listened to them in a while, you kind of forget who the Beatles were, how prolific they were, how they changed the face of music of the time. Just going down that list was awe-inspiring!

(Hmm, maybe there's an idea for a layout in there somewhere....)

I'm done: [url="http://scrapgirls.com.ipbhost.com/index.php?act=module&module=gallery&cmd=si&img=724"]Help![/url]

I picked: Help! I remember when this song came out and my baby brother was a toddler, he loved the Beatles and this album had just been released. My folks never bought albums but they bought this one for him.

I was trying to think of the words and a few lines came to me, knew I had a silly photo my DH took of his feet and then went to the site Breedeen suggested: I could do a whole album on that song alone! Oh, when you read the words....whew!

Must be my advancing years. lol. You know, I'll be eligible to join AARP soon: American Association of Retired People.

I don't think there's a smilie that captures this particular feeling!

I finally got my DH to scan my LO so I could post it. I've had it done for a week or so now!

Anyway, here it is, using the title Good Day Sunshine, but changing it to Sonshine. The LO shows the boys a couple of years ago playing at the part across the street from our house.

The Beatles are great if you have a baby girl. Most every "baby" song has the word "she" predominately.

I managed to find one I could use with my little boy.

Please be kind as I'm a newbie and this is the first LO I've ever completed and posted.

I didn't know how. I know if I click on it it gets bigger, but that was the only thing I saw.

Oh me oh my. What do you do when you are inspired by so many more songs than just one? Do I run and hide like this? :shycouch: Or do I just sit like this :justthinkingabout it: and think abou tit until I can choose just one, or do I just do them all, :dunno: I say I try doing the ones I really love to listen to. That's what I'll do, lol. It will take some time with the CJ going too as well as trying to get things done to take with me when I go see my family, but I'm sure I can figure out something for all of my favorites that truly do inspire me. :)
