When I was in 2nd grade, I started taking piano lessons. As the years went on, I not only played for myself, but I also played for the junior high and high school choirs, dabbled in music arranging for a ladies quartet, and now sometimes fill in for the our church choir director when she has to miss a rehearsal. Music has been such an important outlet for me - it is my worship language, and my mom used to say she could tell when I was upset about something because I would practice my piano lessons extra long...and extra loud.
Even if you never had a music lesson or sang a note in your life, you can't escape music. It's on the radio. It's in the background of the TV shows we watch and the movies we go see. Some poets even say there is music in the sound of a baby's laugh or a running creek.
"The Sounds of Music" are such an intrinsic part of life, and I'm thrilled that it was chosen as this month's theme for the Scrap Designers Blog Train. Our designers have come up with some fantastic, bright-colored freebies for you. Feel free to hop around and see what each has to offer:
And here is my contribution for this month. I found so many good quotes about music, it was hard to narrow it down! But ultimately, it seemed that these might be the meaningful to the most people.

Remember to keep a song in your heart, and I'll see you back here around March 20th for the next Digi Blog Train List Awareness train! This month is ADD & ADHD Awareness.
