At the craft day recently, I had one layout I swore to myself I would complete. Jake has long deserved what I call "focus" pages in our family album. Since I scrap in a Stacy Julian way, I have scrapbooks that are chronological and event-focused for the kids (helps to satisfy that Type A inside of me), but the artist in me? The one that sees all the hundreds of photos that don't "go" with a layout, but scream at me to tell a story?? THAT's the "BIG PICTURE" in my scrapbooking!
So, anyway here it is. It is some leftover paper from a StoryTellers Club paper from a GASC class from '08, blue cs, and lots of inking and some distressing. The pics were random but totally show off his personality- the crazy, playful 5yo boy, the boy who totally "gets" life as he was watching his dad play flag football on a camping trip, and this bottom pic is my favorite. That is my son... all intelligence with a beautiful smile!
