Write Click Scrapbook February

Luckily, I did get a chance to play along with the Write Click Scrapbook February gallery before Ellie came along! I'm also working on a special project for the March gallery, but that may show up a little late, ahem.

Our gallery theme was music. Now I have always wanted to be really, really good at an instrument. I knew it was key to start early, so beginning in elementary school, I tried to learn the violin, the flute, the ukulele (I lived in Hawaii, if you're wondering) and even the harmonica. No luck--my violin playing sounded like a frog in its death throes, and the others weren't much better. I even spent an entire year playing the flute in the school band without knowing how to make the sound come out! I was very good at the hand motions, though.

So I may be terrible at all instruments, but I love to sing, so I created my layout about how excited I was to sing to Bunny.

Now that she's here, I'm enjoying my captive audience--although she does wrinkle her nose at me sometimes.


For this layout, I used my January Studio Calico kit and kept the design pretty simple. I love that woodgrain background, so I hope that trend stays alive!

Check out the rest of the WCS gallery right here!

And because it feels wrong to leave out a photo, here are some new shots of Ellie:

(tushy in the air--ha!)

(We get this face A LOT. I think she thinks we're crazy)

I hope this Monday is treating you well! And help make me feel better (or worse?)--do YOU play instruments?

  3. That's a gorgeous LO--it caught my eye right away in the gallery. It's just full of joie de vivre.

    I can't say that I play any instruments. I tried piano lessons for a year in second grade, but they didn't go well. :/

  9. Ah such sweet pictures! We used to call my daughter a baby burrito too, they are so cute bundled up like that! Enjoy singing to your little one. I started right away and even to this day (she is 5) if I start singing it immediately calms her and she will fall asleep. And I have a horrible voice! ha! But she loves it. It's such a special thing to share and expose your child to.

    I love tushy in air pic the best cause I think baby butts are the cutest. I am a little sad to be past the new baby stage even though I don't miss diapers LOL

    I used to play the piano but have not in years (don't have one any more). I was just telling a friend a few days ago that I want to get a piano and learn again when I am old and retired LOL

  16. New follower here! :)
    Congrats on the little one, she's gorgeous! :) Loved your layout and story. I also played instruments when I was young. Five years of piano lessons, followed by 5 years of violin in the shcool orchestra. I couldn't play a lick now. :)

  17. Goodness! I LOVE that layout. So much that I want it for my very own. I also love to sing to my babies, and they get a fair amount of my voice all day long.

    Your new wee one is simply beautiful. CONGRATS!!
