Snapshots of my Family

Yesterday morning my daughter created her first scrapbook page!  She has been art journaling for the last 4 months and is in love with crafting and yesterday she asked to scrapbook and so I helped her put this page together.
I gave her some limited choices (choices must be limited for a 3 year old or we'd never get anything done!) and she picked out all of the pictures, papers, embellishments and told me what to say on the page.  I gave her color choices on the alpha stickers and she picked out all of the correct letters (except for F which she couldn't find).  I picked the stamps to use and she helped me ink them and stamp them.
I had a bunch of Unity stamps upstairs on the kitchen table because I had been working on my Project Life album and I use them a lot in there and so we added some of the wonderful stamps from several different SMAK kits (Nov 11 and Jan 12 I believe).  The Snapshots is from an Itty Bitty and Family is from Simple Stories Generations.  The patterned paper and camera and flower embellishment are from Amy Tangerine.  She was very excited to add the stickers and put them exactly where she wanted them, she was very insistent that the flower sticker went next to her cherished puppy!

She now has a layout we can hang in her room and she can look at all of her favorite people!  She turns 3 in a couple of days and I am constantly in awe of her.  I can't wait to work on our next scrapbook collaboration!
Happy Friday to everyone and make sure to stop back at Unity's blog to see all of the other wonderful Unity art and inspiration!
