The 30 day song challenge: 12

I've been falling behind a tad on this so i'll start were i left off..

A song from a band you hate♥

I really REALLY don't like Oasis. Everyone seems to know all their songs and love them and personally i completely hate them, their music isn't original and they seemed to insanely want to be john lennon..one of them did anyway. At least one of their songs is classed as 'iconic' but I just don't see the appeal of their music, i dont think there is anything mildly iconic anywhere near one of their songs..

The 30 day song challenge: Day 10

A song that makes you fall asleep♥

It doesnt actually magically knock me out or anything like that, it's just a nice song that i would listen to if i had to choose something.

The 30 day song challenge: Day 6,7 &8

I admit im not very good at remembering this.

A song you know all the words to♥

This could really be any song, but i chose a song that i have to sing along to when it comes on. It's a tad bit odd because its from the program Horrible Histories(a british kids sketch-show) but it is a really good song.


A song that reminds you of a certain event♥

I did a dance to this in year 7 with my school dance club, it's slightly ruined this song for me which is a shame.



A song that reminds you of somewhere♥

I couldn't think of one for this. I couldn't think of any song that when i listen to it say, 'oh that reminds me of this place' sorry..

The 30 day song challenge: Day 4 & 5

Yes, day 4 and already i'm forgetting all about it.

A song that reminds you of someone♥

This is probably the easiest one for me.
This song reminds me of my best friend Perrie. I Giorni was a song that Perrie introduced me to, strangely this is the exact video he showed me(the reason i call it the hippo song). I think it's completely amazing...it's more amazing when Perrie plays it on the piano though because, well he's amazing. I think you get the point.
I think anyone who hasn't heard it should take the time to listen to it..and anyone who has should just listen to it anyway.x



A song that makes you sad♥

All i did for this was choose the most depressing song by The Smiths i could think of(I love The Smiths!!).

The 30 day song challenge: Day 3

A song that makes you happy♥

You can't listen to this song and not smile.x

The 30 day song challenge: Day 2

Your least favourite song♥

This was quite easy. Even though this song is from an advert, i think it is the most hated song in the universe. I absolutely hate it... it is the most annoying thing in the world therefore has gained the title of my least favourite song.

a Note about my digital images

I do my digi drawings on A4 size so although you received a 6 x 4" image, the digi's can be made much larger without losing clarity. The beauty of digi's is the ability to re-size them... larger or smaller. My digi's are not just line-images, they have plenty of depth to them. Even if you don't like digi's ~ give them a go, you might be surprised! I know I've tempted some of the most staunch rubber stampers over to the dark digi side!

These are two of the new digital images available!
