A Brand New Month!

Well ladies, entries are closed and we have started a brand new month!

And in honour of ANZAC Day, we here at Songbirds are dedicating April to Australian Music!
All of this months songs have been written by homegrown talent, and judging by how excited the DT girls were about them, they are sure to inspire!
And for those international players - Dont worry! We chose lyrics that can be used to inspire anyone and anything!
To help us celebrate Australia month, please make welcome our first guest designer, Alyssa Vollman...
Alyssa has provided a gorgeous example for the first April challenge and will be back again with to help inspire you for the second challenge as well!
She applied for our CT back when we were running application and only just missed out, so we asked her back to help us out this month!
I can hear you saying "Enough of the jibber jabber Skye, give us the lyrics!", so I better get on with it!
The first lyrics for April are:
Pete Murray – Opportunity…
Don't be scared of what you cannot see
Your only fear is possibility
Never wonder what the hell went wrong
Your second chance may never come along
Hold on now your exits here
It's waiting just for you
Don't pause too long
It's fading nowIt's ending all too soon you'll see
Hunters and Collectors - Throw Your Arms Around Me...
I dreamed of you at night time
And I watched you in your sleep
I met you in high places
I touched your head and touched your feet
So if you disappear out of view
You know I will never say goodbye
And though I try to forget it
You will make me call your name
And I'll shout it to the blue summer sky
And the AMAZING DT Examples:

Don't be Scared - By Alyssa Vollman

Possibility - By Peggy

Possibility - By Skye

And I Watched You In Your Sleep - By Jane

Throw Your Arms Around Me - By Kirsti

Opportunity - By Chic

As you can see, we were all pretty fond of the 'Possibility' theme this month!

This months prize is a set of the newly released Mumma Bushka papers and Babushka doll mini album from Kaisercraft!

So get to it ladies!
We always love seeing what you create and can't wait to see what this month brings!

Take care and Happy Scrapping!
