I recently took Ethan to have his photo taken and they surprised me with a print out of all his best shots! Just tiny pictures but I had an idea of how to put them to good use.
I also wanted to include on the page all he things that he is into at the moment and how he acts. So I used the journalling as the background and stuck the photos onto a piece of acetate which can be lifted up to read all of the writing.
I made the stripes with watered down acrylic paint.
(I did actually mean to crop out the mess on my desk, but there you go. I think it is quite representative of the mess inside my head!)
And that's how it works. I wrote down his habits, routines, things he loves and hates, what he eats and his favourite things/people.
Simple but I love how many different pictures I've been able to squeeze onto one page! And now I have so much information about him at this sweet age. It makes me smile when I see it (no so much for how it's done, because it's far from perfect, but because these photos and memories will be so precious to both of us in a few years.)
And that's why I scrapbook. (Because it's certainly not something I'm particularly good at! I don't have quite the patience needed!)
