The Nat Scrapbook Project

When preparing for The Nat's visit, I asked if she still liked scrapbooking, and was told "yes".  So I planned a visit to Memories Live On in Cupertino, where I knew we could get some special California-themed items.

Early in the visit, I shared several of the scrapbooks I had done, to show her both traditional and digital style.  Then on Sunday, as we had a little waiting time, we started the project by all downloading the Walgreens app and uploading our pictures from San Francisco, to be printed within an hour.

As an aside, I have to say I was reasonably impressed with the ease and speed of this app.  We were indeed able to pick up our pictures within a few hours, and the quality was good.

When we got home, I pulled out everything I own, which is a lot, and too much!  Paper, glitters, embellishments, glues, page protectors.  Thus began a several-day frenzy of scrapbooking.   I showed The Nat various things about mats, glitters, brads, embossing, stamping, but she took it from there with a creatiuve intensoty that was incredible.

The result was 27 pages of fabulous scraps!  Her organization and design sense was very good, and I have never seen her focus so intently on something.  I am very proud of 12-year-old Nat and her scrapbook, and feel privileged to have been a part of it!

I wish I had gotten better pictures, but at least they give a sense of this accomplishment.
