Join my challenges for IL points!!

Whoohoooooo!! I'm the hostess of 2 great challenges at Inspiration Lane!
I host the Quote challenge, and the Song Lyric challenge

I love great quotes, and I think a great quote can boost your LO's.
So I was screaming to host this challenge.
For August the Quote is:
"To love and be loved, is to feel the sun from both sides"

I took the quote a bit litteral for my LO, but it turned out a cool one
In my opinion. Image is linked to the Quote gallery.

And soon the papers i used will be a freebie, so keep checking my blog!!

When I offered to host the Quote challenge, I was actually hoping to get the Song Lyrics Challenge too,
Cause I'm a singer, and I love music and even better lyrics. If the lyrics don't get me, I'm not liking the arrangements very much...those 2 have to fit together.

I was planning to use "What hurts the most" by Rascal Flatts, but using a sad song seems no fun in a challenge, so I choose a different song from this great band.

The Song "Like I am" is soooooo beautiful, and I listen to it often.
And here's my interpretation of the lyrics.

I hope I can welcome you as a participant in my 2 challenges and leave you some love in the galleries!

Have a great weekend!!

And over to some gorgeous pages with this great kit

And my dear CT member Crystal did what scrapping is all about.
Preserve memories of people and things we won't ever forget.
This is the story behind it

"The layout I created is of my husband, father-in-law, and brother-in-law. It was taken just about 4 years ago when my father-in-law was battling stage 4 cancer. His boys shaved their heads in his honor. He treasured this photo and carried it with him in and out of the hospital, rehab, and finally hospice as the days in his life sharply dwindled. Almost exactly 3 months after the photo was taken he died. A week after that I gave birth to his first grandchild, my oldest son, Noah.
