Scrappin Through my Daughter's Eyes

Today Lexi decided to start on one of her albums. She was blessed with a stash of supplies last year for her birthday and Christmas. After a very productive day of homeschool, I rewarded Lexi by allowing her to scrap in my craft room and use whatever supplies of mine that she wanted. Fortunately, I held on to an old stash of supplies which contains tons of stickers and embellishments for all occasions. Many of them worked for her. Lexi amazed me today. I sat working on my 2 page layout all day, while she whipped out page after page. She knows what she likes and doesn't waste anytime. No need to look at magazines or online boards for inspiration for this 7 year old. I simply gave her some pictures I had lying around my scrap room and she took it from there. I took a video because I was amazed by her activity. I just need to figure out how to post it. We'll keep you up to date with the progress of her first album. 8x8 is a great size for kids. She even figured out how many was too many pictures for one page. Oh to be as quick as her, that's my goal!

WOW!! She is a natural, it takes me hours just to get one page done. She truly has the scrappin gift! :) What a blessing to be able to spend time together doing that. You've encouraged me to do that with my girls.Thanks for the inspiration!!

In His Love,

What lovely scrap pages. Your daughter is very creative; I have not done one page as yet. Paper pending. She looks like her parents too. Please check out my blog and have a look at the video I have included. I know it wont scare you, since you are a child of the King. God bless you.

Love the Glam Girl layout. The pink and black look great together. Little Lexi has some talent too. I'm jealous that she can snap out her SB pages so quickly. I take forever.
