This is your song

Hello all, as some of my regular followers will notice all of the titles for my posts are song titles or lyrics. It didn't start that way but as I have mentioned before I am always humming, singing or whistling a little ditty and this would inspire me at the time of posting my daily antics on here. A little pattern started to emerge and then it became more for fun and the challenge to find a song that matched either the mood I was in or the news I had or about the project I had done.

I explain all of this to you because I get quite a few questions about what songs I use in my titles and yesterday Aimes (whoo hoo love) asked if I had used her favourite song as a title. Well the song for yesterday was I feel fine by the Beatles ( their 6th number one as my husband shouts out that information in my ear hole). That's why everyday from now, just as a bit of trivia for you I will list at the bottom of my post the title and band of the song from the previous day's title, which can give you a chance to have a little guess if you want too ;D

Any hoo this is the last of my mad goody bag give aways. If you are in the UK please leave me a comment on this post before 10pm this evening and will announce the winner tomorrow. Ooh I nearly forgot the layout for today's card for you eagle eyed peeps is taken from a card on page 35 of the new Stampin' Up! catalogue - If you want a catalogue for just £4 delivered or any goodies drop me a line here :D

The winner of yesterday's goody bag was Steph, yes you Steph from any shade of green Steph :D - I have your address so I will pop in the post on the morrow.

Have a great day & see you tomorrow xx

Hey Hun! Well OK so my fave song is REM's Its The End Of the World As We Know It (and I feel fine) so even though yesterday's blog title wasn't the song I was thinking of it still made me smile!
Loving Mr Birdie, he's quickly becoming a fave of mine *sigh!*
