One Little Word August #OLW Blog Hop

Xnomads' Blog

Welcome to to my stop on the One Little Word blog hop for August. If you’ve come from Lynn’s blog welcome! The full list of blogs is at the end of this post.
bullfrogs and butterflies originalJuly’s prompt was music. I’ve heard lots of children’s music this month. Of course Emily loves it, and I don’t mind singing along to Bullfrogs and Butterflies. I guess they fit well with my word also! Growing and changing!
I also bought God is able from iTunes, but haven’t made it past the first few songs yet!
For my album I chose to highlight one song – Doin it Doin it – Emily’s favourite.


There’s a bumble bee, a honey bee
Gettin’ the honey for you and me

Doin’ it doin’ it – doin’ it doin’ it
Buzzing around – helping the garden grow

There’s a little worm diggin’ around
Eatin’ dirt from out of the ground

Doin’ it doin’ it – doin’ it doin’ it
Little worm – helping the garden grow

Up in the sky there’s a yellow sun Shining down on everyone

Doin’ it doin’ it – doin’ it doin’ it
Shine shine – making the garden grow

There’s a big fat cloud and a drop of rain
It’s falling down on the window pane

Doin’ it doin’ it – doin’ it doin’ it
Splish splosh – making the garden grow

Fly fly through the sky
Little bird drops a seed
The seed grows up into a tree
A green umbrella for you and me

Croaky frogs, cats and dogs
Creepy crawlies under a log

Doin’ it doin’ it – doin’ it doin’ it
All over the world – making the garden grow
Everybody – making the garden grow
You and me – making the garden grow

I just did a little bit of trick embossing – used card embossing folder on my 5x7 page and then lining it up as best I could and repeating it at 90 degrees to the first one. That way I got 80% of the page overed. I cut and embossed a scrap and added some lyrics. A very simpel take on this month’s prompt.

I’m thrilled I’m keeping up with this – being accountable to sharing it in the hop really helps me keep my word front and centre.
Ali sends out monthly emails with a prompt for the month and you just complete it as you are inspired to throughout the month. Did you know that the One Little Word class is still open? You still have plenty of time to catch up or why not just jump in with this month’s prompt?

What great music for this month's olw prompt. Isn't it amazing how our kids favorites somehow become our own? I love the embossing! Thanks for sharing your olw experience! -Amanda

Your book looks amazing. Thanks for sharing your process with us. I love the song, too!  :)  Blessings as you continue to "grow"...  :)

I'm so glad someone else used their kids music for their OLW assignment. I listen to my kids music more then mine, so I need to use it too.

Margie S (xnomads) said...

This was so fun to read. Thanks for playing along!

Maureen Reynolds said...

If your life includes kids right now, then that's the music! Beautiful embossing there.

Jenifer Locke said...

glad to see another olw-er with a single song. focusing on one song seems to help the word be more specific yet encompass your focus. your page looks to be so very pretty.

Justine Clarke has great kids songs. My girl is "too old for that" now but I still sing along if I catch it on TV. Love your embossing.
