Inspired By A Song Blog Hop: All You Need Is Love (The Beatles)

Welcome to the Inspired By A Song Blog Hop hosted by Gill.  You should have just come from Lisa's blog.  If you are just joining us and wish to start at the beginning, please start at Gill's blog.

This blog hop features projects that are all inspired by songs.  For my project, I decided to do a scrapbook layout that my daughter can frame for her bedroom.  She is the girl on the left in the picture.  The girl on the right is one of her very best friends.  Both the girls love the Beatles, which I find odd given their ages!  So, I thought it would be great to do a layout inspired by a Beatles song.  I found this paper by Fancy Pants in my stash and saw that it had the phrase "All You Need is Love" printed in the top left corner.  How perfect!

This paper is pretty busy with all the flowers, swirls, and hearts on the left side, but I wanted to do something to it.  So, I added rhinestones to the centers of the flowers.

I framed the picture with some purple ribbon to help make it stand out more.  I also added a bling flourish and some Thickers to spell the word "SISTERS" since these girls truly are like sisters!  Overall, I kept this layout pretty simple.

I wanted to add something to the layout to make it obviously Beatles-inspired, so I cut out this famous Abbey Road scene using a cut file from and placed it in the bottom right corner.  Isn't it fabulous?

My daughter's friend has not seen this layout yet, but I know that she will go crazy when she sees it!  I may just have to do a duplicate one for her.  Luckily, I have another sheet of this great patterned paper!

Well, thanks so much for stopping by!  Please hop on over to Amy's blog next to see what fabulous creation she has made that was inspired by a song.  Below is the entire blog hop lineup.  Thanks for stopping by!
