Scrap it With a Song - Nothing Compares 2 U

We are celebrating great Irish artists this month at Scrap it With a Song - - and up on the playlist this week is Sinaed O'Connor's "Nothing Compares 2 U".  I have vivid memories of a friend and I playing this song OVER and OVER one particular summer vacation and I still love it decades later!! 

For my layout today - - I chose the first line of the lyrics "It's been 7 hours and 15 days . . .".  It made me think about whether there has ever been a time when I felt time so immensely as that - - and I immediately thought of Hawaii.  Both times we have been there I have simply dreaded the day we had to leave!

 A mish-mash of product from my stash on this layout - CTMH paper, K&Company Die Cuts, AC Thickers, AC chipboard, unknown sticker :-)  Sketch is "Sketch Along Tuesdays #36" from Frosted Designs.

The rest of the DT provided some amazing inspiration with the song this week - be sure to check them out!
Hope you'll join us at Scrap it With a Song this month - we are giving away a Guest DT spot - we'd love to have you!!  Link up your entries to any of the March playlist songs for your chance to win!
