For this month's Scrap It With a Song challenge, my team used David Bowie songs of our choice and I decided to use "Changes." I was inspired by this song and its lyrics where it says "Time may change me, But I can't trace time." This immediately made me think of my son when we were reading the third Harry Potter book which included the time turner. This portion of the book made a huge impact on my son and I wanted a way to document this concept and how much of an impression it made on him. Thus, the following page concept was born!

A couple of ideas to note if you want to undertake a similar project. I used a photo from the movie that I found and printed online as well as a photo I took of the book cover. I printed the movie shot on cardstock rather than photo paper in order to give it more of a subdued look. I also punched out circles from the actual pages of the book (I picked up a super cheap extra copy at Goodwill just for this purpose!) The gold, kraft, white, and black details throughout the layout added just the right mood for Harry Potter! I hope that you enjoy this layout and will play along with us this month! Here are a few close-ups of the page elements as well.

I can't wait to see what you create this month so make sure to link up your project to the Scrap It With A Song blog. Happy Crafting!
