Hi ladies!
Skye here - revitalized and back in Australia!

Firstly, let me start by giving a BIG thanks to my DT girls!

Susie, the creator of the blog and head Songbird was called to London at the end of January after her mother fell ill, which left me in charge of running things - however, I had a 6 week holiday booked in South East Asia and couldn't do things from there!

So our DT girls have gone above and beyond the call of duty to get things in on time without any guidance and have shown complete professionalism!
I am a very proud DT mummy at the moment!

Special thanks to Kirsti for taking over my role and updating the blog!
You have been a big help!

Secondly - let me say WOW!
I never imagined we would hve such a great response to our first month of challenges and I am so pleased and thankful for your support!

On that note - we received another entry today, from Renae Deguara, who chose the Ben Harper lyrics from 'My Own Two Hands' for this layout:
You have until the end of today to get your entries in and I will be posting the new challenge tomorrow!
A February winner will be chosen by the 5th of March!

So there is a lot going on over the next few days here at Songbirds!
Be sure to keep checking back!

Layouts to share

Hi there everyone. How are we all this fine day? Hope you are all scrapping madly because there isn't much time left until the close of February's challenges!
I have two more layouts to share that have been sent in. Thanks girls... they are gorgeous!
'Don't Be Afraid To Be Young & Free' by Treesa Young

'In Love With My Best Friend' by Emma Allen

I've loved seeing everyone's entries that have come in this month and I really hope there are lots more to come! Skye will be back with us in March with a new set of lyrics to challenge us all and the team are already working on some layouts to inspire you all to join in. Remember, you can use the lyrics however you like... you can use them in your journaling, as a title or just base your page around the feel of them.

Seeya all soon

Love You - The Free Design
Give a little time for the child within you
Don't be afraid to be young and free
Undo the locks and throw away the keys and
take of your shoes and socks and run, you.

With my own two hands
Make a better place
With my own two hands
Make a kinder place
With my own two hands
With my own
With my own two hands
The CT girls have all produced absolutely gorgeous layouts for you to be inspired by. I love the way everybody has interpreted the lyrics and come up with such a range of layouts and styles. Love your stuff girls :o)

Happy Saturday

Hi there folks! Just thought I'd pop in and say Happy Saturday :o) Half the country seems to be melting at the moment so I hope you are all keeping well and staying cool!
We have had a couple of gorgeous entries come in already for the first challenge and I am looking forward to seeing many more! I am loving the layouts so far - it is amazing how many talented scrappers are out there in Blogland LOL
Well, that is all from me for now. Hope you all have a great weekend and we'll see you back here soon. Susie Q and Skye are still away at the moment so I am looking after things. They should be back soon and I bet they will be as stoked as I am with the response to the blog :o)
One of us will be in before the 2nd challenge is announced on the 14th so make sure you swing by again. If you thought the first challenge was good, wait til you see the second!!!
