Scrapping Everyday Miracles Challenge #4!

Well we have another challenge up at Scrapping Everyday Miracles! This one is all about taking a meaningful song and scrapping about that. Take a peek over at the SEM blog to see all the details. Participate and you stand a very good chance of getting one of the challenge prizes. ; ) Here's my layout example for it. The song I used is What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong.

I got a little crazy and didn't even use a photo! (gasp!) I think I went a little crazy with the red roses too, but it's all good. Here are the lyrics and journaling:

What A Wonderful World ~ Louis Armstrong
I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
They're really saying I love you.

I hear babies crying, I watch them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll never know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world.

I have always loved this song, it is so hopeful and optimistic. It makes me look at what is positive in the world. There is a lot of bad that we tend to focus on, but there is a lot of good to be thankful for too!


  1. What a gorgeous interpretation of that song. Love it! And I love your red roses :)
