    Hiya September!

    This past week has been so crazy for us battling Hurricane Harvey. It's been incredibly emotional to see photos of the places I grew up and friend's places destroyed by this terrible storm. A song that comes to mind is Sunshine Song by Jason Mraz. It's one of my favorites and seems so fitting now that the sun has come out and everyone can start to pick up and try to find a new normal. I'd love for you to find some inspiration from this song so here is a link to the lyrics. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

    Here is the page I created from a line in the song:

    As always: your page must contain at least 75% Lilypad product. Your page should be posted to the Lilypad Gallery and then linked to the Challenge Layouts thread so it can be tracked, and to this thread.

    The Lilypad uses a percent system for our challenges' the number of challenges you participate in determines the store discount you will receive at the end of the month:

    2 challenges = 10% off
    4 challenges = 20% off
    6 challenges = 30% off

    If you complete 7 challenges, you will receive a coupon for 30% off, plus you will be entered to win a $50 gift certificate from the Lilypad (new prize starting with the July challenges)! The first seven challenges will be posted on the first of the month' the eighth challenge is the BYOC challenge, which is posted on BYOC release day. Each page counts for one challenge (you cannot use one layout for multiple challenges).

    I can't wait to see how you take inspiration from this song. <3

    Not sure you were going for this feeling, probably I should listen to it, instead of reading the lyrics, but this is what it brought me to.

    That's a beautiful song. I hope I did this ok - I chose a lyric that struck me and added to it. I am not sure it is in the "spirit" of the song though...

    My heart goes out to all those who are hurt by this event-We had a horrendous flood here a couple of years ago and it was extremely traumatic.

    I couldn't help but thinking of the upbeat future the lyrics inspire...

    I got a little carried away here, :-). I did the writing myself - got myself a tablet and had to try it out right away...
