Documenting the tunes

Babymusic

[ supplies : cardstock: bazzill; pink dot paper: anna griffin; onesie pattern paper: hambly; red ruler transparency: teresa collins; pearl accent & "09" rub ons: jenni bowlin; heart brad accent: making memories; "welcome sweet baby" stamp: technique tuesday (coming soon); mini staples & stapler: tim holtz; scallop edge: fiskars "scallop sentiment" punch; other: red trim, letter A ]

Following up on Monday's post about music in our lives (and how you can print CD inserts from iTunes), here's the
layout I put together for Anna's baby book. It's a 6 inch x 12 inch
page that fits perfectly into these page protectors from American Crafts (that will go inside a 12x12 album). I ended up printing the collage of album images on photo paper and the list of songs on cardstock. And look, there's that scallop edge again.

Coming Monday: a look inside the beginnings of Anna's baby album.

Have a great weekend!

    This is such a great idea! I hope you don't mind if I borrow :) I'm putting together an album for my girlfriend about her wedding and was wondering how to capture all the music they had selected for their reception. Such a great idea!

    Such a great idea. Music holds so many memories for me! And often I forget what I listened to...

    LOVE this! I can think of so many reasons/occasions to document the music you are listening to at a particular time... I'm sooo going to have to try this!

    I love the idea of capturing the songs you're listening to now. I'd like to do a page of the songs my boys have loved through these first years. This is a great idea. Thanks!

    Beautifully awesome. Wish i had done something like this for my boys. If i kept the tapes (no itunes then) i might be able to remember some of the tunes i played for them often. Oh those were the days . . .
    Enjoy your beautiful, precious gift from GOD!

    This is such a simple and wonderful idea. I have been wondering how to capture the playlist I created for labor and delivery. It was the soundtrack of my life for so many life changing hours and hearing that compilation will immediately take me back to that time. Thank you for the inspiration.

    fabulous page!
    love the 6x12 idea - had to order the 6x12 page protectors (and a couple other goodies) after reading this - a fun splurge for someone who hasn't ordered supplies in a long time!!
    thanks, Ali.

    Ali, You are such a genuine person, and your authenticity always shines through on your amazing layouts and your beautifully written journaling. I always feel more grounded and peaceful, and so very appreciative of everyday life after reading your blog. Anna is beautiful (looks just like you)and I am so happy for you all. Have a great weekend, Deb
