Kelly, what a clever idea and cute little album! My husband teaches elementary school and in 4th grade here in VA, we learn about the Civil War -- he always had his kids keep a scrapbook as if they were living during the war years. One year a kid brought in a whole Creative Memories album! Great stuff!

Oh Kelly, that album is just precious!!

Renee VanEpps

Oh how sweet!!! That WAS a great idea and so awesome your son chose to do the scrapbook with you! It turned out beautifully :)

Kelly, what a lovely prologue to your project. My daughter had a son 18 months ago, and one of her first worries was the same as you---nobody to scrap with. I just love your story---and the album. It's beautiful!! A+ for sure!

My almost eight year old grandson lives eight hours away but when he comes to visit, I generally find him in my craft room at 6 a.m., happily working with paper. He loves making cards so that is something we often do together. Think he will be ready to start scrapbooking soon. We are currently working on a dragonfly science project by mail. When we go to look after them in early June, I will take my Cricut and a lot of crafting supplies and tools to have there for him to use. Yes, I too thought it would be only granddaughters who would be interested.

I was lucky to have the same opportunity with my teenage daughter 2 years ago. The students had to read a biography and present on the book in class afterwards. I helped her with a scrapbook and it was a bit hit. The teacher asked to keep it to show sutdents in the next years but she did not want to part with it!

Your project is very cool but very touching as well.


Oh, this is so fabulous, Kelly! Not only the cute album and bright colors, but the wonderful story!

What a wonderful mini scrapbook.

Shannon Miller

Loved that scrapbook you did with your son!! I think boys like to do things like that more than people often realize and are so proud when they see the final product.

Tina Campbell

Wow what a fantastic memory to always have! Love it! The project turned out so cool!


What a fantastic idea! I'm sure that it will always be a special memory for your son.

Fantastic project...I'm sure your son was very, very proud to share such a wonderful project. I can relate to the 'gender bias' thought. I too thought my son had given up on creative projects, however, he really surprised me. For my birthday last year, my 12 yr old son, gave me a very special gift. He made a scrapbook page and in the journaling wrote that it was just the first page of many and that he wanted to start an album we could BOTH work together on...I cried. We've added several pages and I have a blast working with him. He has come up with some very creative ideas for pages.

What a great project for you and ds!
Can't wait to scrap with you on NSBD :-)

Kim Thomas

What an awesome project you created with your son. I'm sure he'll always remember it. I would have been choked up too. That's the good stuff. TFS :)

Megan Smith

Super cute mini!!

What a great project with your son. I think you choked everyone up with this story. It's so special,


You are so lucky to have shared this experience. I envy you.


Beautiful story....I love to stamp with my grandson
And I hope he continues to enjoy crafting with Nana

What an adorable album you made with your son! Precious memories! That is what scrapping is all about :)


Fabulous - as always!!!! I love how you incorporated his writing into the project. I know you will treasure that for years to come. I would love to know who makes the cloud paper on the front!
