Free time

If you take one addiction away, it must be replaced with something else. (That is a lesson from my life change.)

Scrap booking is my something else---and talk radio but you really don't want me to go there, do you?

Pictures are very pink from the home printer, and there are probably too many monkeys, but I like it anyway.

Believe it or not, this is the first time I used cut words from a book, and was able to use some of my Crafty Secrets booklets.  For those of you who couldn't care less, this accomplishment is the same as buying an expensive and very useful Healthy Eating Designer Cookbook and then using it for the first time 3 years later. 

 My grandparents last spring.

How do you make a scrapbook for an 11 year old boy who has been waiting for his personal scrapbook for the last 4 years?  Very Carefully and with as much humor as I could think of.  Although there were no potty jokes in this book, or fart explosions, I did manage to use the word naked several times.

I filled extra space in his book with pizza trivia and a candy quiz to make it more interesting for this particular boy.  Whose name may or not be Jonathan.  He liked his book so much he refused to share it with anyone, except for the picture of the naked alien zombie chicken. So, shhhhh, don't tell the boy, who may or may not be actually named Jonathan, that I took pictures of his book and posted them.



  1. I LOVE the scrapbook for Jonathan (or not!) It is so full of things boys are made of! Great job! I have one for my son for every year of his life and he loves it- it's not as great as yours though, cause I use old magazines and cut them up! I'd get bankrupt if I bought my materials and made so many scrapbooks!
