Scrapping the Music Challenge #100

I Would Stay
Scrapping the Music's Challenge #100
I have been waiting for the perfect lyrics to scrapbook a page for my sister. The lyric "I Want to tell you" was the perfect title for my page. I have so much to tell her and this is a great way to say it. I have also been wanting to make a spinner page for the longest time, so here it is. I love how it turned out. The journaling can be seen or hidden depending on how the spinner is facing. Above, the journaling is showing, in the picture below you can see it begin it's rotation around the page to cover the journaling.I used Basic Grey paper for the project.
In the picture above, the spinner is covering the journaling and revealing another part of the song. I changed the lyrics from saying I have to... to say...
"You have learned, tried, trusted, cried, saw and know you can be yourself."
I am so proud to call you my little sister.
The journaling reads:
Tell you...
I want to tell you I am proud of who you are and what you have become. You have never had the easiest of times; however, it doesn't bring you down. Even when boyfriends have betrayed you, you have used your morals to find the correct answer to your life. You are honest, loyal, considerate, caring, passionate, and loving. You are the strongest single mom I know, and I am proud you are my younger sister.
You have dealt with men leading double lives while you have been seeing them, but yet still stay strong. You provide such a great life for my nephew, you do it mostly on your own. You once again will be living in a wonderful house that you are fixing up! Stay strong... even though we both know you don't need a man... there is the right one out there waiting to meet you. He will know how to treat you right, will possess all those wonderful character traits that you have and you will eventually have your happily ever after... for right now... I want you to remember, that you are a great mom, role model for your son and strong woman who can do it all herself!

Thank you for looking at my page for my sister!
