Happy Friday! Emily here with our final day of Celebrate Music week here at write.click.scrapbook. Today as our finale, I have a plethora of different layouts and musical ideas...things that didn't quite fit into the other three days of this week. Music is something that is present in so many facets of life....here are just a few more to round out our week of inspiration!
Celebrate Music Teachers
Did you know that March is Music in Our Schools month? I am so happy to be in a profession where I can witness the joys of music firsthand on a daily basis. Unfortuantely many schools are being forced to cut arts programs due to lack of funding. This breaks my heart. Without music in our schools children will miss out on so many special and important experiences. Take, for example, the joy of learning to play the recorder!
Christa Paustenbaugh's daughter must have an amazing and inspiring music teacher. This layout documents her daughter's desire to some day be a music teacher when she grows up. She's a girl after my own heart!
Celebrate Wedding Music
One moment in your life in which music takes center stage is at your wedding. I'm sure those of you who are married fondly remember your first dance with your spouse, your father-daughter dance, and maybe even some special songs from your reception. I loved every minute of my wedding and reception. Here are a few layouts I created to remember these special times.
Celebrate Special Times
Music can create special bonds between people, especially parents and children. Wcs team member Lisa Kisch created this layout telling the story of a special song she sang to her daughter as a baby. I love the heartfelt journaling and the beautiful photo.
The one piece of "advice" I always give at baby showers when they ask every mother to share something is to sing to your child every day. He or she will undoubtedly think your voice is beautiful and perfect, even if you disagree. Keshet Starr and I must think alike! She had not yet had her baby, but in this layout was was already preparing for the special bond that music would build between them. Thinking of them together now makes me smile. I hope she has been singing to her every day!
My husband and my daughter have a special song that they listen to every night before they go bed. She knows it is "Daddy's Song" and asks for it even when he is not home. I am sure that someday it will be the song that plays at her wedding as she dances with her father.
Finally, Karen Grünberg shares a sweet layout of her songs with a perfect title: "The music of your laughter brings so much joy into my life."
It has a been a pleasure being your blog hostess this week! I hope you have enjoyed all of the musical creations our team has created. I would love to see any other music layouts that you have made. I will leave you with one final thought, one that rings true in my life every day:
"Without music, life would be a mistake."
Go enjoy some music, and hava great weekend!
