Love Song Blog Hop Day 1

Welcome to &'s Love Song Blog Hop! Love is in the air and our Designers have come up with some great Valentine's Day projects inspired by their favorite love songs.

If you arrived here from visiting Laralyn at Handmade from the heart you're in the right place. If you're joining us mid-hop and would like to start at the beginning click
here to go to Paper Crafting World’s Cooking With Cricut blog and check out what Melin has made!

I was inspired by I'm Your Angel, by Celine Dion.  This song came out about the year my 16 year old niece passed away from menegitis, and everytime I heard it, I imagined, it was Jodi telling me "I am your cloud up in the sky"..."I'll hear your voices when you call me, I am your angel".  There are a lot of versus in this song that I took comfort in and thought of her when I heard it.  She has been gone 10 years, and through crafting and these challenges, I am just now able to make layouts and hope some day I will be able to actually write down my thoughts and feelings, but maybe that will be for another challenge. :).  I hope you like my layout of a very very special person in my life. 
I used the angel from Papercrafting World.  If you have not seen her designs, you really need to stop over and check them out - so cute.  You can get them as cut files or digi's.  I chose a digi for my layout, and used some stickles for the halo.

We hope you’ll join us and link up your favorite love song inspired project at  One lucky entry will be chosen by to win a $10.00 gift certificate provided by! And make sure you leave a comment, too! One lucky commenter will also receive a $10.00 gift certificate!

Oh My, I really have been touched by your story and song, my heart goes out to you and your family. What a terrible lose and at such a young age, you have done a wonderful job with both the song you picked and your story. Thanks for sharing with us. I know it has been 7 years sinc I lost my mom and I am just now starting to scrap her pictures, but it is really a great way to bring back beautiful memories of the ones we lost.
