    Once a week, there is a radio show that has been on for many years. It is called Vinyl Tap. It is 2 hours of songs that are picked around a particular theme. Sometimes, it has to do with a word, sometimes, a topic, sometimes it is another particularity (like “unlikely duets”).

    In honor of Betty White, who passed away just before the new year, I suggest you find a song title that uses the word FRIEND in it. Use that song title as a title for your project, or quote it somewhere on the page. Your project could be about a particular friend, friendship in general, or any other angle you want.

    Are you up to the challenge?

    Master Class: No Scrap Kit 2

    Thank You For Being A Friend…theme song for Golden Girls.

    Thank you for being a friend
    Traveled down a road and back again
    Your heart is true, you’re a pal and a confidant
    I’m not ashamed to say
    I hope it always will stay this way
    My hat is off, won’t you stand up and take a bow
    And if you threw a party
    Invited everyone you knew
    Well, you would see the biggest gift would be from me
    And the card attached would say
    Thank you for being a friend
    Thank you for being a friend
    Thank you for being a friend
    Thank you for being a friend
    If it’s a car you lack
    I’d surely buy you a Cadillac
    Whatever you need, any time of the day or night
    I’m not ashamed to say
    I hope it always will stay this way
    My hat is off, won’t you stand up and take a bow
    And when we both get older
    With walking canes and hair of gray
    Have no fear, even though it’s hard to hear
    I will stand real close and say
    Thank you for being a friend (I wanna thank you)
    Thank you for being a friend (I wanna thank you)
    Thank you for being a friend (I wanna thank you)
    Thank you for being a friend (I wanna thank you)
    Let me tell you ’bout a friend (I wanna thank you)
    Thank you for being a friend (I wanna thank you)
    Thank you for being a friend (I wanna thank you)
    Thank you for being a friend (I wanna thank you)
    And when we die and float away
    Into the night, the Milky Way
    You’ll hear me call as we ascend
    I’ll see you there, then once again
    Thank you for being a
    Thank you for being a friend (I wanna thank you)
    Thank you for being a friend (I wanna thank you)
    Thank you for being a friend (I wanna thank you)
    Thank you for being a friend
    People, let me tell you ’bout a friend (I wanna thank you)
    Thank you for being a friend (I wanna thank you)
    Thank you for being a friend (I wanna thank you)
    Thank you for being a friend
    Whoa, tell you ’bout a friend (let me thank you right now for being a friend)
    Thank you for being a friend (I wanna tell you ’bout a pal and I’ll tell you again)
    Thank you for being a friend (I wanna thank you, thank you)
    Thank you for being a friend

    I tried something new — PSP’s new Frame Tool. I used it to create the ovals and to encase the sheet music. Unfortunately, in adding other elements, the frames vanished, acting more like masks. They were very touchy to work with and wouldn’t let me add the flower elements, so I flattened the design, saved it as a .jpg, and went from there! Here’s BETTY! 🙂

    Edit: With this small version you may not be able to read the upper-right cartoon: “It says so much about your life and legacy if people think you died too soon at 99.”

    Ann – I love the layouts you have done about Betty White. She was a very special lady. Finally got to see the tribute made for her (I think it was originally made to celebrate her 100th birthday).

    Bonnie – thanks for your layout and giving us the lyrics for the song.

    I took me a while to come up with a layout, it was a very busy week with al kind of things to do! I have this photo that my daughter send to me lately with one of the grands and their dog meeting their mouse. Don’t ask me why, but the song “We’re going to be friends” by the band The White Stripes popped up in my head. It is of children who go back to school in the Fall and make friends. I used the WordSlats script on the photo, made a scallopped mat and used a paperclip I had made before. The background is a paper I had in my stash and I made a pattern with a white stripe for my text.

    I was going to use “Thankyou for Being a Friend” too but you all beat me to it. Wondering if you know that it was written and performed by Andrew Gold before it ended up on the Golden Girls. I never heard his name before but it seems he was a success in his early 20’s. Just a little fun fact.

    Again I went with John Prine one of the most prolific singer/songwriters of our time and one of my favorites.

    This is from his album “Aimless Love”, “Be My Friend Tonight”

    Again for the song challenge, Waylon Jennings, another favorite. One photo is Getty Images, the other two of Jennings are from the internet but there was no name on them The background is a photo I took at Santa Monica Beach in California and I used some PSP frames.

    Lynda both your layouts are very pretty, although I must say that I’m not familiar with both the artists. Maybe they are not so well known over here, at least not to me.

    Corrie,

    I should probably already know the answer to this question but can you tell me where you are? My husband and I are fans of country and folk music, especially my husband, so these two artist are extremely well know in the USA to people who like the genre. There are lots of YouTubes of them if you are interested in checking them out.

    I’m glad you enjoyed the layouts as you do a pretty good job yourself and it’s nice to have feedback from those that know what they are doing.

    Thanks,

    Lynda

    Lynda,

    I’m in the Netherlands and altough I know some of the great names of country and folk music, these artists aren’t among those. But I’ll certainly check them out on you tube in the coming days.
