In honor of owls in the Inspiration Photo,
The song for this Reveal is:

"WHO" CAN IT BE NOW by Men at Work



  1. Awesome...everybody's pages are amazing :)...and how exciting to be able to chat again!

  2. Wow gorgeous layouts and love the chat area!

  3. Wonderful pages from you all ladies!
    I loved seeing the pages of Az and Kay here too!

  4. I saw the challenge on Lilith Eeckels blog today, and thought to myself, "weird, I thought i really loved colorcombosgalore site, how come I haven't added it to my RSS reader?"

    After I added it, I was painfully reminded why it's not on my reader.

    It's annoying enough when I browse this webpage the music from your youtube ad blasts off. I was dumbfounded when all 10 youtube ads blasted off at the sametime on my RSS reader.

    I LOVE your site, and it's such a pity it's not RSS or browsing friendly for those of us that have zero tolerance for music we didn't choose to listen.

    I'll continue following via Lilith! :) Please let me know once you fix the music problem, I'd be happy to follow you. I'm sure I'm not the only one that feels this way, but probably the only one that can be bothered to inform you.

    1. Wow! Not cool that it did that to your Reader. I am so sorry!!!! I totally appreciate your feedback, didn't realize it was that annoying...I was trying to be fun. I have turned the auto-play off, and you are totally right, it should be an option to listen to the song should one desire to and not so in-your-face. Thank you for taking the time to express and share your thoughts, feedback from our readers is always welcome! :D

      PS. It will take a while to manually remove the auto-play on all my Reveals, but I will work my way backwards from the most recent.

  5. Fabulous work ladies...I love seeing all the different takes on the challenge! Very inspirational in many different ways...

  6. Beautiful work again ladies, I am loving these as well.

  7. Wow I'm surprised that anyone has an issue with music....I have a volume control on my computer as well as my speakers....if I don't like....I don't have to listen! I thought the blogging world was a way for individuals to have freedom to express whatever it is they want....after all it is an individual's blog...but hey who am I!

  8. I just love this challenge but I don't have time to get in done by the deadline. I'm still going to do it though!!


Thanks for visiting us this week! We love to read your comments about this Reveal!
