Scrapbooking a Song

Music - most people hear some music every day. To many people, music is background noise, but to me and my family, it's much more than that. When I was growing up, music lessons were part of my life. My piano was my escape - if I had a good day, I played the piano. If I had a bad day, I played the piano - different music, but music somehow helped.

Now, as a Mom, music is even more important. My daughter has grown up with multiple music and dance classes. She's in college now, studying music. When she was in high school, she lived and breathed chorus, band, orchestra, and more. 

"In My Arms" is a song performed by Plumb with incredible lyrics. I made a little 6x6 scrapbook for my daughter based on those lyrics. I used pictures from some of our vacations, my daughter and me, and her alone.  It was challenging to find photos to fit some of the lyrics. I gave the book to Kim when she graduated from high school and she loves it.

Here are some of the pages from that scrapbook.

Your baby blues, so full of wonder

You start to grow up - Kim at 3 and 13, one in the backyard, the other at Four Corners, Navajo Nation

All I can do is hold you tight - Kim and me - Cadillac Mountain, Acadia National Park Maine and Rousch Creek, Stony Valley, close to home.

Waves will crash round - crashing waves in Hawaii

Storybooks are full of fairytales of Kings and Queens - senior prom picture. I put the pic of her and her high school handsome prince in with photo corners. Since most people don't marry their high school sweetheart, she can change the picture.

But you are never all alone, Cause I will always, Always love you

Pictures of Kim in the Black Hills of South Dakota and Yellowstone.


I ended the book with the title and writers of the song and a pic of the two of us together at Oregon Dunes when she was 5.

These are a few of the pages in the book. It was fun putting it together and remembering thigns that we have done together.  Now, she's a junior in college and I have another song in mind.

Love this idea - I've seen individual pages based on a song, but not a whole album - what a great idea! Music was a big part of my growing up as well. And I understand exactly what you mean about music fitting into every day - you just change the type! When I was frustrated, I would bang out Beethoven! And when you're done, your heart is beating in time with the music! I was talking with a new resident at the hospital this past week about music and he said I probably wouldn't enjoy his kind of music - I told him I like everything! If it's good music -it's good music - it doesn't have to be classical!

Wonderful way to script your book. You won't be able to hear that song without seeing those pics!
