Scrap It With A Song DT May song ... Lionel Richie-Dancing on the Ceiling

hello crafty friends!!!

I am here with our new challenge over at Scrap It With A Song!!! this month Astrid is choosing the Pop team song and she did a great job peaking " Lionel Richie-Dancing on the Ceiling "...

here are the song's lyrics to help you: 
What is happening here Something's going on that's not quite clear
Somebody turn on the lights We're gonna have a party
It's starting tonight

Oh, what a feeling   When we're dancing on the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling  When we're dancing on the ceiling

The room is hot and that's good  Some of my friends came by from the neighborhood
The people startin' a climb the walls  Ooh it looks like everybody is having a ball

Come on!
Everybody start to lose control When the music is right
If you see somebody hangin' around Don't get uptight
The only thing we want to do tonight Is go 'round and 'round
And turn upside down Come on! Let's get down!

it is a very fun song !!! I like the lyric "Oh, what a feeling  " and I used it as my title for this layout... 

I got inspired by 7dots papers that I have (but the colors did not quite matched my photo) and I created my background on a white piece of cardstock.... dry-wall tape, painter's tape, mists,stamps,stensils and distress inks helped me build up this background work... and I loved the result !!!! 

I hope to get you inspired to play with us !!! all you need is on word or phrase from the song!!!
please head over to the Scrap It With A Song blog to check out the wonderful creations form the rest of the DT members!!! 
you have until May 28th at 23.59, Eastern Daylight time to link up your work!!!
