    I really liked this challenge and listened to the song as I made this. I've seen London go through so many traumatic times from my 1st visit when WWII bombing sites had not all been cleared in the mid 60s! to a recent trip not too much before one of the most recent terrorist attacks. Determination and hope...

    I've never heard this song!! It's such a juxtaposition how the lyrics alone can seem a little sad, but the song is so upbeat... So, I was pulled in the sunshine direction, since I used to sing to my daughter about her being my sunshine all the time.

    Great song and fun challenge! I went with "Making new friends along the way" and scrapped my daughter and her roomies at college.

    I was especially inspired by the lyric;
    You're undeniably warm, you're cerulean,
    You're perfect in desire.
    Won't you hang around
    so the sun, it can shine on me...

    so I started with a hunt for blues and it became purples and this. :)
