Welcome to my Sing Me A Song! Challenge. This Challenge will be active from today, December 10th, thru December 24th.

The rules are simple!

<3Choose your favorite Christmas Carol, and scrap it!
<3 You must include over 50% of the song lyrics on your layout.
<3You may chose to use a photo or not.
<3Create your layout and post in the Sing Me A Song! Gallery HERE. (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/g1357-sing-me-a-song.html)
<3Then come back to this thread and post a preview as well!

There are numerous websites that provide song lyrics. HERE (http://www.mikeleal.com/christmas/songs.html) is just one.

For our inspiration, btuffs and msbrad, members of my creative team, have designed these layouts for us. All participants will receive the "It's Beginning to look a lot like Christmas" Quick Page (Thanks, msbrad!)

One of my favourite Christmas Songs. I used a selection of the Christmas Blogtrain kits in creating this.

Here's my song. Actually the song is "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day" but I used the line from the chorus for the title.

My page is simple, but that's because this song, my favorite, I feel doesn't need a lot of embellishing to have the impact. :)

These Layouts are lovely, ladies! (how's that for alliteration?) This was harder than I expected. After finally settling on a song, I started 3 times before I finally found a kit that worked. Then it just fell together.

Loved the challenge.

here is mine -- I love this song and it reminds me of the Christmas pagent each year put on by the combined choirs of all the schools in our town and held in the Civic Auditorium.

More lovely entries, ladies! I think coming up with a favorite Carol is one of the hardest parts! There are so many great ones! It's fun to see both the serious and the fun Carol's here!

Has anyone actually been Christmas caroling yet? We used to go every year when our children were young, but I have to say I haven't been in a while. One of my very favorite Christmas caroling times was when we went caroling back at my grandparent's small town in Kansas... I actually saw sheep in the fields as we were talking, and in the dark Kansas nights, the stars were so bright.... quite different from California caroling.

Yeah, uh, my 2-year-old starts screaming every time I try to sing a Christmas song. Must not like my singing voice very much LOL.

Oh, Faye, the graphics you used are just perfect with this song! Well done!
I commiserate Becky... I don't have a 2 year old anymore, but my DH gives me funny looks when I sing.. I think that his message might be the same as you are receiving, yes?
