Inspired By A Song (Or Film)

... but I went with a song...

And the song is - Kids In America by Kim Wilde a hit back in 1981 for all the youngsters out there!  I was at school when it reached No 1 and for anyone interested, here's a blast from the past!

So,
Inspired By A  Film or Song

Is the latest theme for the Oldie But A Goodie Challenge set this time by the lovely Laurie.

To join the challenge, please follow the theme and include something older than 6 months on your project and tell us what it is.


My Oldie was the paper - Doodlebug - from a set which is a few years old now.

The sponsor this time is the ever so generous Bugaboo Stamps & one lucky winner will receive 7 free digi's of their choice.


My card features the lovely Ava, a Bugaboo Digi along with a freebie stamp from Designed2Delight, & it's still available last time I checked!

Challenges;
Designed2Delight - September Challenge
Pile It On - For A Child
Fussy & Fancy - Trip Around The World - The card is for a little girl having a farewell birthday party before moving to America with her parents.
MAWTT - Seeing red
Song Bird - Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

For more inspiration visit the main blog & see what the rest of the DT made, Jx

very cute. the red, white and blue looks fabulous (coming from me that's a big compliment because that is not a color combo I like) without being cloying. the little girl image is adorable and the americana flag is sharp.
