"Double Batman"

There are some things as a SAHM that I absolutely love...the fact that I am home to capture all the silly things my kids do, is such a blessing! I love scrapbooking too because I can write my thoughts on a couple of pictures and keep them in an album to laugh at for years to come. :) Ethan LOOOVES super heros. He loves mixing and matching costumes and running around our house. I love it. It reminds me of my own childhood and all the good times we had living out in the country. Of course back then, that was all we had, our imaginations. I love that my child would much rather run outside than watch TV or play video games. I love that he has a wild imagination just like his mama.
A couple of months ago, I captured his "double batman" disguise. He gave me a couple of posed shots, but I also captured several action shots too.
Here is a quick layout I was able to create today (click on image to enlarge):

Yay for scrapbooking again! I didn't feel like it was forced once I got started. I think I'll rotate between kids. I'm working on a Noah layout. Those of you who have more than one child...how do you organize your layouts? Do you make separate albums? I would love to know any tips you might have!

xoxo, Veronica

What a cute superhero you have there. I have 3 kids and I do an album for each of them and also do a "family" album that captures bits and pieces from all of them. I also always go in chronological order in my albums. Good luck with your projects!

I have a school album for each child (5) but all layouts go into a family album. When i started scrapping Creative Memories was all there was and pages are glued down so it would be hard to remove them. I am kind of wishing each child had their own album.

What an adorable layout, Veronica! My middle son loved super heros when he was little too and this layout reminds me of the fun he used to have! :)

Thanks for the great give away at 1825-so generous of you!

Came here by way of eighteen25 & am so glad I did. What a cute layout (and kiddo of course ) and I love how you scrapped more than 1 photo. When I first started scrapbooking I kept 3 albums, one family in chronological order and one for each of my daughters. My daughters are now grown (19 & 22), so I'm giving them their albums to add to or whatever they want. I'll keep the family albums, and when I'm dead & gone they can divvy them up, have them scanned, etc. For me it was easier to organize the pages chronologically, rather than by theme like holiday, vacation, pets, etc. One of the best tips I heard was to jot down specific memories on a piece of paper to keep with the photos until you've done the layouts. Trying to recall what happened 15 or 20 years ago can be difficult.

Anyway, I also wanted to say how much I love your items in your shop. They're wonderful! Di in UT
