:::MUSIC & Lyrics:::




Our theme this week is MUSIC & Lyrics…I would like to thank our hostess Keron Lee for her gorgeous arch and selection of the theme…

A bit about our hostess:

The theme for this week’s challenge is: MUSIC & Lyrics presented by Keron Lee (aka The Colourguru) from Melbourne, Australia.

I hope you have fun with this theme – you are welcome to interpret this literally or figuratively – so using sheet music on your arch or using the title of music or lyrics from a song to be the topic of your arch. If you are going to do that, you need to include the words in the composition.

These may be current day lyrics, classical lyrics, words from plays or theatre performances – or songs from your childhood.

You will see that my Arch is of ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’. Our 18 month old granddaughter (whom is affectionately known as Princess ‘L’) spends lots of time at our house when her mum is studying or working. We often sing songs together & dance about with her while she is with us & she is always going up to the stereo & saying dA, dA, which means she wants music on & wants to dance.  She twirls & stomps her feet & sways around, makes moaning noises that mimic singing………one of the little games we play is singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, THIS week – when I was singing it with her at the appropriate place she joined in with ‘How I won……….’ Then trailed off into her melodic moaning again.  She has been wandering around saying ‘how I’ & just continuing to repeat those same few words – in our house – the nursery rhyme is now called ‘HOW I’ as we all (including my macho tradie husband) make twinkling stars with our fingers!

For anyone who has been following along, you may notice that it always appears as though I do two arches (I guess I do in a way) but it’s the back of my arch, as I have punched the sides & will eventually bind it in some way at the sides – I want the backs of my pages to be nice as well……………what’s everyone else doing with their stash of gorgeous arches????
