It’s ABBA, and it’s corny, and it was never a song that Suz knew in the golden olden ABBA days – the first time she heard ‘Slipping Through My Fingers’ was at Mamma Mia the Musical. As she surreptitiously wiped away the odd tear or two, she knew this was a song she related to, and often words from it pop into her mind as she waves the kids off to school. So when this challenge came up, just after the kids had started their new year at school, Suz knew it was time to scrap it.
She has used an eclectic mix of Collage Press, Hambly, and 7Gyspies papers, alongside Heidi Swapp butterflies and Websters embellishments, which include that gorgeous canvas circle offset in the centre of her layout, and of course the fab letter stickers.
Nicole's layouts are often inspired by song titles and lyrics so she finds herself listening carefully to music looking for her next idea. Having recently attended a concert by one of her all-time favourite bands Pixies, she wanted to use one of their songs for this challenge.
The song "La La Love You" is a particular sentimental favourite to Nic as it's a song she used to sing with her son when he was much younger than now, mostly because his little sister, unable to say his name, nicknamed him "La La". The family still have no idea why she chose "La La" but it stuck and this song became a sort of anthem to the family's younger years. A particularly beautiful story that Nicole felt compelled to scrapbook.
