Scrap That Baby
One of the most popular scrapbooking subjects seems to be children. Who wouldn’t love to use an adorable photo of their baby as the center of their page? While I have no children of my own, I have to admit, scrapbooking about my friends children and children in my family is a true joy! Documenting a child’s life is something they will treasure when they are older. At least that’s a scrapbooker’s hope!
I recently came upon a fantastic challenge blog that provides prompts to help you document your child’s life in a scrapbook page. Sarah Rice has put together a fantastic Design Team, as well, to help inspire you.
