Shopping Our Stash Challenge #196 The Earth Has Music!!

Hello, Crafty Peeps!

This week Shopping Our Stash is Collaborating with Words 2 Scrap By.  
This month's words celebrate this first full month of spring and come from renown author and philosopher 
"The earth has music for those who listen."

I wholeheartedly agree with Mr. Santayana.
I believe the most beautiful music  on earth happens when we lift our voices together 
regardless of race, creed, color, religion, or national origin

"There comes a time, when we need a helping hand,
When the world must come together as one"

(excerpt from USA Today click here for full article)
On Jan. 28, 1985, at A&M Recording Studios in Hollywood, following the American Music Awards, more than 40 artists gathered to record a song Lionel Richie and Michael Jackson had written to raise awareness of widespread, life-threatening poverty in Africa. Most of that show's winners — including Cyndi Lauper,Hall & OatesBruce SpringsteenHuey LewisWillie NelsonTina Turner, the Pointer SistersKenny Rogers and the Jacksons — participated.

Happy 30th Anniversary!  The image is from the South African Celebration
 The background was created using The Crafters Workshop's " Mini Mod Checkerboard" Stencil.
The Cover Stock, emphemera, charms, are all Stash Items
Thanks for stopping by!  I look forward to your participation in both challenges!
