so dang proud!


This weekend my son became a real scrapper! If you've read my blog for awhile, you may remember THIS POST where I showed the book of Super Heroes that we started for him. Well, he's been bugging me to finish it.

While he was talking to me, I began to realize he had ideas for it. Nate knew what he wanted it to look like, and what he wanted to include.


So, I let him make the next four pages all by himself. This was so much fun for me, more so I think than it might have been for him! Nate's art table is in my craft room, so I set him up in there and he got busy creating. (Sorry there are so many pictures, but he was so dang cute!)


Here, he's gluing down his photo mat and photos. He had very specific ideas about what papers went with which pictures.


He added epoxy stickers, letters and die cuts. Then he posed for a picture with each page before we added them to his book.

(See Nate's wonderful black eye? He fell off of a jungle gym/plastic climber at daycare on Thursday. It was quite scary for everyone, but all he has is this nice shiner to show for it. Other than some swelling, he bounced right back, even taking the time to get a sympathy pick from the prize box for his accident. Oh, did I mention he was pretending to be a cop when he fell?! Yeah, that doesn't make me feel too good about his career choice!)

Well, that's all for Nate's first scrapbooking experience. I'm so dang proud of him! If you lasted this long, thank you so much for sharing this with me. In case you couldn't tell, I'm so excited about this. :)

Have a great Monday!
