sugar & spice

This week at Scrapping the Music the challenge is to use James Brown's "I Feel Good" as your inspiration. I recently came across the damaged picture of my sister and I from the 70s (top) and scanned and reprinted it. It was sitting on my desk waiting to be sent to my sister but when I thought about the lyrics, "I feel nice, like sugar and spice," I decided what my scrapbook needed was a montage!

Sugar and spice, that's what me and my sister are made of!

I used the flowers to cover some of the water damage(?) to the photo. Notice the Squirt bottle lid I used as the center of a flower after smashing it flat with a hammer. Squirt is my sister's nickname for me, even after she began wearing my hand-me-downs.

Gotta love the hair and clothes.

P.S. If you want to play along go here:

That is so cool and a great idea that you found inspiration from the song to scrap you and your sister...and those pictures are all of the details and especially that bottle cap with the meaning behind it!
