If you haven't tried ziplining, you're missing out on a lot of fun!

The 18th sketch challenge has been posted at the SCRAP & MUSIC challenge blog! Head over to the site to grab the sketch, which I’m proud to have designed, and play along. This sketch came with the song “Nothing Else Matters” by Metallica.

Scrap & Music sketch #18

My layout

When Matt and I were approaching our 15th wedding anniversary last year, we discussed how we should spend the day to celebrate it. We really liked the idea of trying something new together and finally settled on ziplining. Exciting, right? It was a terribly cold day for early October, so we layered up our clothing and headed out to Wimberley, Texas for our adventure.

What a completely fun time we had! Our little group of fellow zipliners were cool people, the young men who were our guides through the whole experience were very patient and helpful and the 10 zipline runs we each got to make were awesome. Exhilarating. A touch challenging. And absolutely a do-again activity. If you haven’t yet, do yourself a favor and try it.

Product/technique notes

I used several patterns from the Crate Paper “Acorn Avenue” 6×6 paper pad to create the layers on this design. The stickers in my title are from Jillibean Soup, October Afternoon and Thickers.

The challenge

The challenges on this blog involve following the sketch and using a title on your layout with a line from the provided music. Below I’ve included the video as well as the lyrics for this song:

“Nothing Else Matters” by Metallica

So close no matter how far
Couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters

Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don’t just say
And nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know

So close no matter how far
It couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know

I never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don’t just say
And nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they say
Never cared for games they play
Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
And I know

So close no matter how far
Couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
No, nothing else matters

    How exciting! Way more adventurous then I can be. I love your sketch and layout. I’m really drawn to the wood grain or paneling type patterned paper and arrows and flags too. Been in a bit of a slump so I’ve been making my own to use when the moments right. Thanks for the inspiration. Happy new year. Michelle t.
