Nashville Skyline ~ Quick Quotes October Challenge Inspired by a Song

Hello Quick Quotes readers, I am so excited to be bringing you the October Challenge Inspired by a Song.  There are so many places you can go with this theme.  I created for you both a layout and a card. I hope they inspire you to play along this month! 

I love music and have lots of concert photos but I decided on a non musical photo.  I titled my page "Nashville Skyline" after a Bob Dylan album.  It works perfectly.  I snapped this photo as we cruised into Nashville one crisp February morning.  I electronically cut plenty of neat musical die cuts out of several different Quick Quotes papers to accent the photo.  I die cut a road sign for the mat to tie in the travel element.  To give the page that country chic Nashville look I added it all to a background sheet of Quick Quotes Farmhouse 104 paper.

My second project is a card I made with a new stamp.  I just loved this quote from the song Drift Away by Dobie Gray and it works great with the Anchors Aweigh collection.

To dress it up a bit I added some tiny sequins with a drop of glass accents in the center.
