Quote & Lyrics Challenge Mountain/Mistake

The Craft Barn Quote and Lyrics challenge this time is Mountain/Mistake - I went for Mountain as I could choose lyrics from the amazing Loretta Lynn's album Van Lear Rose which was recorded in 2004 and was produced by Jack White - its an awesome country album! Definitely worth a listen.  The track I used is 'High on a Mountain Top' its a happy and fabulous song.  The full chorus is:

High on a mountain top, we live, we love and we laugh a lot.
Folks up here know what they got,
High on a mountain top, high on a mountain top.
Where the rest of the world's like a little bitty spot.
I ain't coming down no never I'm not
High on a mountain top, high on a mountain top.


My mountain is made from pretty pattered paper to go with the happy song!  The people are from Vintage Photography stamp set by Creative Expressions, single tree and birds from Clarity Stamp and the trees along the bottom are a really old wooden stamp.  I used Mown Lawn, Vintage Photo and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink and Adirondak Stonewashed along with Clarity cloud and sun masks and orange rafia.  Sorry I haven't been around much lately, I know I am always apologising but I really am sorry! I will do my best to visit you when I can.  Have a lovely weekend and take good care of yourselves! Christine xx

That really IS a high mountain. I was really impressed by your stamping skills, too. You did an excellent job and I loved how everything seemed to work so seamlessly together.

I love this scene you created. Those people look quite happy way up on their mountaintop so high they can almost touch the sky!
