Thyia was pretty much attached at the hip to her friends Shelly and Sonya all throughout high school.

The 21th sketch challenge has been posted at the SCRAP & MUSIC challenge blog! Head over to the site to grab the sketch and play along. This sketch came with the song “Dancing Queen” by ABBA.

Scrap & Music sketch #21

My layout

We are very fortunate to have many of Matt’s family photos because during his mother’s illness she asked us to take care of them (knowing about my photo preservation obsession hobby). Today’s layout features prom pictures of his younger sister, Thyia. My husband is the second of five children. Thyia was the youngest, born 10 years after Matt, so when she hit high school age he was already off to college.

This is the journaling from my page, which is rather small and may be too hard to read. I’m thankful to Thyia’s friend, Shelly, for giving me these photo details:
Thyia went to her junior prom in spring 1992 with a friend from the restaurant where she worked and her high school besties, Shelly and Sonya. They drove to Boone for dinner at Makato and before attending the dance at the Walker Center at Wilkes Community College.

Product/technique notes

I used papers from My Mind’s Eye’s “the sweetest thing » bluebell » playful” collection and created and cut the title on my Silhouette Cameo.

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:

“Dancing Queen” by ABBA

You can dance, you can jive
having the time of your life
see that girl, watch that scene
dig in the Dancing Queen
Friday night and the lights are low
looking out for the place to go
where they play the right music
getting in the swing
you come to look for a king
anybody could be that guy
night is young and the music’s high
with a bit of rock music
everything is fine
you’re in the mood for a dance
and when you get the chance
You are the Dancing Queen
young and sweet only seventeen
Dancing Queen
feel the beat from the tambourine, oh yeah
you can dance, you can jive
having the time of your life
see that girl, watch that scene
dig in the Dancing Queen
You’re a teaser, you turn ’em on
leave ’em burning and then you’re gone
looking out for another
anyone will do
you’re in the mood for a dance
and when you get the chance
You are the Dancing Queen
young and sweet only seventeen
Dancing Queen
feel the beat from the tambourine, oh yeah
you can dance, you can jive
having the time of your life
see that girl, watch that scene
dig in the Dancing Queen
