Okay I dont mean she's a real brat....she's very cute and loveable!

I think my children are spoiled with how I scrap. I scrap with more than one photo, because lets face it, one photo might not tell the whole story. That and I take dozens of photos at each event that I have more than one good photo to scrap!! I also journal, a lot!

Today I scrapped this layout of my daughter's 2nd birthday
http://gallery.gingerscraps.net/data/500/April26_SMALLER.jpg (http://gallery.gingerscraps.net/showphoto.php?photo=59597&title=dora&cat=all)

I was showing it to her, asking her if she liked it when she goes
"Mama, are you going to do another layout?

To which I reply
"I dont know, maybe not"

And she goes
"Well I like it, dont get me wrong, but it only has one photo and no writing. *long pause* How is anyone supposed to know what is happening and why I got that toy?"

So I went back, re-edited the original layout, adding in journaling to the left side (Which I planned on doing, just not posting it online) and now I am trying to figure out if I have enough photos to scrap a second page with more photos (my camera was old and took very grainy indoor photos) since she's obviously spoiled by my scrapping style.

What a stinker she is to comment about my lack of photos and journaling hehe
I think its cute and had me singing, "Dora" all morning!!

Sorry- I just HAVE to chuckle! My kids are LUCKY if I remember to put the name of the child and the date on the page! I guess that just means that I need to go and search in your gallery a little more for inspiration!

My daughter always asks me, when I take her picture "Mom, are you going to scrap that?"
Most of the time, eventually, I will :D Which might be why I get shots like this:

I think it's a good thing that she likes being scrapped. Makes taking her picture SO much easier.

My daughter likes to be scrapped, but won't smile for me for ANYTHING! Go figure! We took 20 family pictures 2 weeks ago, and in EVERY one she looks like she is going to attack! I printed it off just as it was, and put in on the family mantel. Everyone except her looks happy, so I think she realized she made a BIG mistake!

She wasn't even posing. She was just getting up when I got the picture!

I know what you mean on that. Ethan's like that. He doesn't make bad faces, but he has the most awkward "fake" smile.

Maybe the stopping to pose will come with age. Gabe can't stand to be still for a moment or stop doing what he wants to do to look at the camera. If he does stop, he'll nicely ask me to put the camera away.

Some just aren't comfortable in front of the camera. :(

I love your photos!! My youngest is enjoying her poses whereas the oldest is thinking it rather lame these days. Getting decent photos of her is very hard!

Both of the girls know what I do and why I do it. The oldest has created several kits with me, even has her own designer name. The oldest is a fairly good scrapper herself whereas the youngets just loves to watch!

And you can do the paper layers, its easy! Just start stacking and adding a solid paper in there every once in a while to balance the look of the layout!

I never thought to scrap her comments! You are a genius! Maybe instead I'll simply add to that to this week's P52 layout in case I never get around to scrapping it ;)

Your son is like my oldest. I hope yours comes around and takes some fantastic photos later this year and in his lifetime!

Mine...I think she's just getting ready to go through her teenage years *gag*

Robert to a "T!" I just think it's funny that when she's by herself, she's great and gets in front of the camera, but family photo time- NO SMILE- are you kidding me?????? GRRRRR!

LOL, I love that LO! But dang, you got yourself a real Simon Cowell on your hands, being all honest about what's "missing" from your LO! :) (And you reminded me that I totally need to pick up that kit cuz it's too stinking CUTE!)


Oh, and he hates looking at the camera for some reason hehe

Unless DD was the one who asked me to take a pic, she's the same way! Drives me nuts! Thing is, she loves scrapping. I've even purchased kits and let her "scrap" pages. Maybe I should tell her "Hey, if you let me take a few NICE pics of you, I'll let you scrap them!" and that way she'll give me a real, looking-at-the-camera smile!
