Monday Madness!

“It’s a mad mad mad mad world out there!!” Or so the 1963 movie title says. I don’t know why that came to mind this morning, but it got me thinking about my challenges in the forum. Each month I search far and wide (throughout the internet) for the perfect movie and song to bring you my two Pop Culture challenges. This month our Cinematastic challenge brings you a look at “The Game Plan”. Perfect for scrapping some of those great football layouts or even a good one for the fathers out there. The That’s Music to my Ears challenge this month brings you to Kellie Pickler and her song “Things That Never Cross a Man’s Mind” with fun lyrics like “I need to go shopping, These shoes are all wrong, Just look in my closet, Not a thing to put on I wonder how these jeans make me look from behind, Things that never cross a man’s mind”. Think you could scrap a cute layout about your little fashion diva with those lyrics?!

If you happen to be cruising the forum today around 5:30 pm Pacific, go ahead and stop on by the Speed Scrap Forum and join us for a speedy scrap! Your host Marie will be offering up a great participation prize. Hope to see you there!

Well, my computer battery is about to die, so I better finish this up real fast. Happy Scrapping Ladies!
