Scrap A LIttle Blog Hop

Welcome to Scrap A Little's first design team blog hop! We are showcasing our April Challenge layouts! If you didn't start the hop from the Scrap A Little blog, make sure to hop back there so you don't miss out on any fabulous layouts!

The April Challenge: Use the lyrics or song title of one of the songs chosen by the design team!

My song choice was Dream Big by Ryan Shupe & the RubberBand. You can see a UTube video here. My apologies, I can't figure out how to post the UTube here in Blogger. I came across this song on another blog a while back and instantly fell in love with it. I will post lyrics at the very end of my blog post.



Now hop on over to Veronica's blog!

In case you get lost along the way, here is a list of the blog hop order:

Scrap A Little

Kristie

Kayla <----------YOU ARE HERE Veronica <---------------- GO HERE Bev
Fon

If all the links aren't working, make sure and check back later. We are all on pretty different times, so the actual post time may vary.

I have a little give-away! Anyone who leaves a comment will get an entry into the give away. If you sign up to follow my blog you get a second entry (if you already follow, you automatically get a second entry). Whats up for grabs you may wonder? An assortment of ribbons and flowers. I know they look Christmasy...I didn't realize that til I took a picture.



And as promised, here are the lyrics:

Dream Big
Ryan Shupe & The Rubberband

When you cry be sure to dry your eyes
'Cause better days are sure to come
And when you smile be sure to smile wide
Don't let them know that they have won
And when you walk, walk with pride
Don't show the hurt inside
Because the pain will soon be gone

And when you dream, dream big
As big as the ocean blue
'Cause when you dream it might come true
When you dream, dream big

When you laugh be sure to laugh out loud
'Cause it will carry all your cares away
And when you see, see the beauty all around and in yourself
And it'll help you feel okay
And when you pray, pray for strength
To help you carry on
When the troubles come your way

And when you dream, dream big
As big as the ocean blue
'Cause when you dream it might come true
When you dream, dream big

When you laugh be sure to laugh out loud
'Cause it will carry all your cares away
And when you see, see the beauty all around and in yourself
And it'll help you feel okay
And when you pray, pray for strength
To help you carry on
When the troubles come your way

And when you dream, dream big
As big as the ocean blue
'Cause when you dream it might come true
When you dream, dream big

Such an adorable layout! The colors are gorgeous and that photo is precious. The song lyrics give me an idea for a layout for my granddaughter who has had a rough Sr. year in high school...they are so appropriate for her as she heads off to college.

Beautiful layout Kayla! I love the touch of green trim with all that purple.
To add a YouTube video you just have to "copy" the embeded code located to the right of the video under the person who uploaded it's info, and then paste it into your post. Hope that helps :O)

Amber said...
