A few years ago I saw a layout where the scrappers child had answered a series of questions on the page, I loved the idea and have tried to do one each year for both the girls. They are great to look back on, Emily and I had all the scrapbooks out last night and had a good giggle at some of her previous answers.
I wanted Emily's layout to look a bit like a page from a personnel file so I kept it very simple without too many layers or fancy embellishments. On Sarah's Cards design team we have got an amazing scrapper Lou, she manages to use paints and mists on her pages in the most creative ways. I struggle to do anything messy or irreversible on my pages but she has inspired me to try and be a bit more adventurous so I stamped some circles on the page using brown acrylic paint. I have used MME fine and dandy papers for Emily's page.
I know there are a few spelling mistakes on the page but that is part of the charm of getting them to do their own journaling.
I was going to do Rebecca's page pretty much the same as Emily's but it didn't turn out quite as I had intended! I used a combination of MME papers for this page, fine and dandy along with stella and rose. They work really well together and I love the small floral print paper, it is exactly the sort of print that Rebecca loves so perfect for a page about her. I did keep the page quite simple with only a few embellishments but created a pull out tag for the questions and her answers.
