7/29/2017 challenge: Being GREEN

Post by BarbP » Sat Jul 29, 2017 12:57 pm

Join us all month long in July as we celebrate that classic children's television show, SESAME STREET! We will be offering challenges all month long based on colors, numbers, friendship and more. Everyone is welcome to play along!!

A new Blue Plate Special challenge is posted each Wednesday and Saturday, and participants have until the 3rd of the following month to complete and post their creations.

Prize will be a $10 Gift Certificate to their online store of choice.

My challenge today is "Being Green", in honor of a ballad sung in 1970 by our friend Kermit the Frog:

Though he's best known for his role on The Muppet Show (and his romantic involvement with swine), Kermit the Frog mesmerized young audiences on Sesame Street in 1970 with the tender tune "Bein' Green." The ditty, voiced by Jim Henson and written by Joe Raposo (the same man behind "C Is for Cookie"), won praise for its fun, graceful treatment of subjects like race, individuality and self-acceptance. "It's not that easy bein' green/ Having to spend each day the color of the leaves/ When I think it could be nicer bein' red or yellow or gold/ Or something much more colorful like that," Henson sang. Since then, the melancholy ballad has been performed by Frank Sinatra, Diana Ross, Ray Charles, Tony Bennett and fellow pea-colored Muppet Oscar the Grouch. And to think, the song grew out of a simple request by one of the show's producers: "We need a song for the frog."

Listen to the song here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=51BQfPeSK8k

For this challenge, please use the color GREEN on your layout. Here's my example layout.
