Samantha Walker Creative Team Blog Hop - Anything Goes!

It is time again for Samantha Walker's Creative Team Blog Hop and giveaway. Samantha Walker will be having a blog hop once a month where her Design Team will be sharing their creations with her brilliant products! If you are coming from the creative genius, Angi Barr welcome! If not, you can start the hop here. I am so excited about this because Jessica Sprague is the sponsor for this month's give away! Read on to see how to win.

Last month, after plugging in our iTouch for the first time in about a year, I found over 1,000 photographs that my five year old son had taken. It was like finding buried treasure. There I was flipping through photograph after photograph, really getting to see things through his eyes. There was about twenty five of Thanksgiving last year, about one hundred of  his toys lined up, and several hundred of his thumb. ;)


He has a good eye for color...and candy.

Overall, I knew I needed to document some of his life "through his eyes" on a few scrapbooking layouts. The first one I did I wanted to share with you today. My son, photographed his trip to the grocery store all while I was pushing the cart with him in it, unaware.


Apples... thought provoking too.

I wanted document several of the trip because they were all so good! So, I cropped the photos so they would fit in a three ring trading card protective sheet. I trimmed the pockets, then with a large sewing needle in my machine, with a large stitch, I carefully sewed them together.


He doesn't like salad... but he must like linear lines. That must come come from his mother. ;)

Then I created my page with Samantha Walker's A-Z line for Creative Imaginations.


Samantha Walker's border paper and stickers are always fun to layer over top of each other. It looks like the photo of the salad shelves above ;)




You can see below how easy it is to flip the pages of your little photo book. When in your page protector, use a craft knife to slice the protector so that your family can flip through the book too while the rest of the page is protected in your scrapbook.
