So what's your soundtrack?

That is the question today for this weeks Design X challenge!

What is the soundtrack to your life? Are there certain pieces of music that define moments for you?


Music is such a powerful force. It can bring tears to your eyes, transport you to a specific place and time, can help fix a broken heart. So for this challenge, I thought of songs that could do and have done all of the above for me. From Joan Jett (who was one of the first people I remember listening to as a 4 yr old) to Pearl Jam (the music of my teenage years) to Zeppelin and the Beatles (because they ROCK!). This challenge also panders to my love of making mix tapes, well CD's now. So with the help of Itunes and my computer, I have a CD to go along with the page. I think my daughter will enjoy finding this years down the road.


Here is my layout:

So take a moment to think about what songs or music has influenced your life. It could be the song you danced to at your wedding, the first record you ever bought, your favorite hymns. We all have music that moves us, that is in the very fiber of our being, the soundtrack of our lives. What's YOURS?!

What a great idea to include a CD to go along with your layout, I thinks I am going to have to borrow that idea if you do not mind :D I also want to say thank you for your wonderful comment about my layout. Have a great night and a wonderful weekend.
