Scrappin' Chics July Challenge

Happy July!  July's challenge at Scrappin' Chics is to scrap/alter something with "Your Favorite Song."  I am sharing a layout that I did a while back.  It means a lot to me.  Unfortunately, I was never able to meet my father-in-law as he passed away a year before I met my husband.    Over the years, I have enjoyed hearing the stories about Mark's dad from him and his mom.  One of Mark's favorite songs is "A Candle in the Wind" by Elton John.  Mark is a huge fan of Marilyn Monroe, which this song is actually about. Ok, enough said.... time to see the layout (remember, this is from my old scrapping days)....

Thank you for visiting my blog.  I hope you can take time to visit the Scrappin' Chics and see all the awesome projects they are sharing this week.  Make sure to link up your project as well for a chance to win a $25.00 gift certificate from Stampin' Up and my good friend, Stasia Sloma, who is the sponsor this month.  You can see all her cards, layouts and information Here.
