Week Two - Make Sense
This week we are going to focus on our sense of hearing. It is said that babies can recognize their mother's voice as soon as they are born, having heard it while still in the womb. What an amazing connection without any other senses to help out. Sounds can be immediately recognizable in favorite songs, loved ones, or even the wind through the trees. Sound can also warn us of danger like the rattle of a snake, a tiger roar at the zoo, or even a bee hive close by. Sound can be carried from far away like the blast from fireworks or the horn on a train. I remember when I was young hearing the sonic boom of a passing plane (before that little ordinance was changed) and looking to the sky in wonder at the power of the sound.
One of my favorite sounds right now is the sweet little voice of my youngest daughter Jill. She is four years old and full of life and her own little version of the English language. This layout takes five of my favorite phrases and words that she has adapted to her liking, and although I know exactly what she is talking about - I didn't want to forget the way she says things. It 'makes sense' to preserve my favorite little sound while it's still small and sweet.
This layout was created using Animal Crackers and Passport collections. I love mixing programs as their patterns are timeless and colors are easily interchangeable. The letters and paper with script just seemed to go along so well with what my layout was saying.
