About Moi

I was born in June 1981, I'm a hearing impaired paper-crafter who loves all things crafty. I sew, although I'm still very much a novice at sewing. I bake and cook hopefully all kinds of delicious treats. I have a huge passion for photography and the camera {yes I'm old school I still use an actual camera} is never far from me. I also love creative writing from making up sentiments/verses for my cards and other paper-craft projects to penning some fiction. I am an avid reader and if you are very unlucky I may even throw in some book reviews on here too!

Song Lyrics

This fortnight we are being prompted by our favourite song lyrics over at Ikes World Challenges, I'm not sure how popular this song is but if your a Greys Anatomy and or McDreamy or my personal favourite McSteamy fan you are likely to have seen the musical episode of Greys where Calliope/Callie Torres has an out of body experience after a car crash.  She tours the hospital and crash scene singing various songs.  One of the songs Sara {the actress who plays Callie} sang was called The Story.  This is what I chose to base my card on.  Here are the lyrics.

"The Story"

All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I've been
And how I got to where I am

But these stories don't mean anything
When you've got no one to tell them to
It's true, I was made for you

I climbed across the mountaintops
Swam all across the ocean blue
I crossed all the lines and I broke all the rules
But, baby, I broke them all for you

Oh because even when I was flat broke
You made me feel like a million bucks
You do, and I was made for you

You see the smile that's on my mouth
It's hiding the words that don't come out
And all of my friends who think that I'm blessed
They don't know my head is a mess

No, they don't know who I really am
And they don't know what I've been through
Like you do, and I was made for you

All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I've been
And how I got to where I am

Oh, but these stories don't mean anything
When you've got no one to tell them to
It's true that I was made for you
Oh, yeah, well, it's true that I was made for you

I've used distress inks to create the background and world weary and definitely wrinkled face digi image from Ike's Store.   Inside the card I typed out some of the lyrics an used them as the sentiment.

I do hope to see you all playing along and look forward to seeing what songs you chose.
