I'd like to be, under the sea In an octopus' garden in the shade
He'd let us in, knows where we've been in his octupus' garden, in the shade.
We would shout(out) and swim about The coral that lies beneath the waves
Oh what joy for every girl and boy Knowing they're happy and they're safe
We would be so happy you and me No one there to tell us what to do
I'd like to be under the sea In an octopus' garden with you
Welcome to the "You Say It's Your Birthday" blog hop. If you've come from Glenda's blog you are in the right place. If you have just happened upon my blog, go back to the beginning at the very talented Erika's blog and join all of us on this amazing hop. The line up is at the end of this post if any of you get lost along the way.
For this hop, we were asked to use Beatles songs to inspire us to make a card for Erika's daughter Ashley who is having a hard time right now. Ashley is turning 11 years old and has her own blog and although not an official part of this hop go visit her at Ashley's Creative Journey and leave her some love :)
Although I was born in the 60ies I am not much of a Beatles fan (much to Erika's dismay) so when I began searching for songs I changed my mind many times. But when I even heard the title of "In An Octopus's Garden" my mind immediately planned a card in my head. And for once the card in my head and the card I made look very similar.
This card is a 5"x 5" square. The plain card stock is by Recollections and the glitter card stock is by DCWV. The octopus, background plants and coral are from "Life is a Beach" Cricut cartridge. The stamp is from My Pink Stamper's Everyday Occassions. Flowers, bling and wiggly eyes are from my stash. I hope Erika and Ashley enjoy it.
Thanks for joining us on this hop today. We have some amazing sponsors so please remember to leave some love along the way for a chance to win prizes from Peachy Keen Stamps, Cricutmachine.com, Kich N Bleus and 40:31 Stamps. Now it's time to hop on over to Cheryl's blog and see what she has created for you.
