Music scrapbooking Ideas

There are many different ways to incorporate your love of music into your scrapbook layouts. For example:

  • How has your taste in music changed throughout your life?
  • Are there certain songs you associated with various periods in your life? What songs make you think of your teen years? What songs make you think of how you felt when you first met your spouse?
  • What musical concerts have you attended throughout your life? Which performance was your favorite?
  • Do you play a musical instrument? If so, what inspired you to choose this particular instrument?
  • If you had to pick a "theme song" to describe your life as it is today, what song would you choose? Do you have any particular songs that you associate with your friends and family?
  • How would your life be different if you were a famous rock star?
