Hello and welcome!!!! If you are following along the blog hop trail you should have just left Lisa's place. If you just stumbled in and wanna hop along you need to head over to Scrap It With A Song and start there. If you are just flat out lost and looking for directions....ummmmm can't help ya......I stay lost ALL the time so I am probably not the best person to look to for direction :) Just grab a seat and wait for me to finish and i'll call ya a cab :):):)
We are super excited to bring you our first ever blog hop!!! Be sure to hit all over the blogs and leave comments along the way cuz it will be worth your while.....I heard a lil rumor that there may be some prizes scattered along the way!! You wouldn't wanna miss out!!!
So........why the hop?
This weekend is the MTV awards!!! They will be honoring the greatest and latest musicians to rock our airwaves and to celebrate that we are having our first ever Scrap It With a Song BLOG HOP!!!
Follow along with each DTs blog and see what karaoke hour has to offer in their corner of blogdom. We'll be rocking out to some of our favorite musicians of all time (past and present, and covering all musical genres!!!)
Some of the individual DTs have goodies so be sure to hit each and every blog!!!
There is also a killer prize available on the main blog.
BUT...... to be in the running for the goodies on the main blog you need to do a couple of things.....
1. complete this week's challenge found HERE!!!!!
2. comment on each of the DT blogs (you will find the master list at the main blog if you get lost along the way)
3. become a follower of Scrap it With A Song ( unless you already are of course!!)
4. and then comment back on the main blog's hop post when you're done.
The hop will last until Sunday at 8pm central time. so you have plenty of time!!
Now.......our task was to pick our fave artist and draw inspiration from them. My fave artist is probably not known by many unless you listen to country music. Ever heard of a fella named Jamey Johnson?
Yeah he's a little scary looking.....LOL.If you listen to country music at all you have most definately heard songs written by him. George Strait's "Give it Away" and Trace Adkins "Honky Tonk BaDonkaDonk" come to mind. I had the chance to see him live this year and had a blast!!! Bob called the concert Redneck hell.......fights, drunks, people up dancing in the aisles.....a typical day for me.....lol....j/k!! Jamey is kinda the new breed of outlaw music I guess.....just like when Waylon and Willie hit Nashville and left everyone wondering what the heck had just come into town :) But he is totally cool and a really gifted writer......well, except for that badonkadonk song......which I do totally love, don't get me wrong!!! It's just not a lyrical masterpeice :)
I am one of his BIGGEST fans!! (Yeah Kathy Bates will play me in the movie.....bwahahahahaha!!!!) I love ALL of Jamey's music but his biggest hit is a little something called "In Color"
Even if you don't like country music the words to this song are amazing. Give it a shot....please? Just for me!!
One of the lines in the song goes like this.....
A picture's worth a thousand words but you can't see what those shades of grey keep covered.....you shoulda seen it in color.
And that is what inspired this layout........perhaps the most famous B & W photo of all time.......take a look :)
Now........since you have made it this far thru my rambling you surely deserve a little award for it!!! Like maybe some really cool vintage papers from Basic Grey?? I have a 12 x 12 pack of thier Basics Manilla for someone!!! (just to tie in with my vintage theme ya know)
Now for da rulez!!!
Just leave a comment and become a follower! Easy as that! And if you are already a follower and wanna win it, leave me a comment and you will get 2 entries! Post about this giveaway on your blog and leave me the link and I will give you another entry....just cuz I am nice :) LOL
