Make Your Kids Do the Work for You

Recently my little lady has started writing in cursive. She practices her cursive writing at every chance she gets. My pens are constantly missing and I need to go buy more notebooks. She LOVEs writing. While I was working at my desk and she was sitting next to me writing away I decided to pass the journaling card to her.
  
I love the authenticity it adds to my scrapbooking and I love that she can be involved in my creative process.

Do you involve your kiddos in your scrapbooking?
Thanks for stopping by today! I love hearing from my readers! Let me know if you have any questions or comments!

Get Your Game On

Good Morning! Spring has finally arrived in Idaho and that means little league season. We spend hours and hours every week at baseball games and practices. As a mom I'm sure you know where I'm coming from. Last season was a little bit rough for my little man. This year seems to be shaping up much better. I'm so excited for him he's been playing first base and pitcher. He's having so much fun! When he's pitching my heart seems to jump into my throat. I know he feels a huge amount of pressure and I feel it too. I'm so proud of him!

I created a layout using one of my favorite photos from last year. I love the look of concentration on his face.

I used lots of bits and pieces from American Crafts on this project from the DIY collection, Polka Dot Party, the Plus One collection, and even a little bit from the Cut & Paste Collection.
  
I can't seem to complete a project that doesn't have some kind of ink splattered on it lately, I love ink!
Does your family spend hours and hours on the baseball field or do you spend hours and hours at another sport or activity? How do you document it in your scrapbooks?
