This last week, after school I've been having the privilege to watch, and listen as a young master in the making creates a scrapbooking layout. She approaches it so differently to me, which was a surprise as she learnt by imitating me.
TJ was invited to be a Junior Scrapateer for Meredith Cardall. Meredith and I used to work together on the RAKScraps Team and she's always been keen to encourage my young scrapper ever since she saw TJs first pages in the gallery. TJ gets to choose something from Meredith's store to work from each month and this month she has chosen a snowy themed bundle.
After putting the co-ordinating kits onto the laptop for TJ I left her to have a look at it. I had to leave the meal preparation to go and have a look in at the squeals from her and her brother. Roo was sat next to his sister and they were playing with the papers and elements in the kit. That is how she always begins, by playing with every piece of the kit in her software as a way of checking it out. This particular set of kits included something for building your own snowmen and they were having a fantastic time doing that together.
Next TJ plans out a layout using her favourite pieces and works on getting them to look how she wants them. TJ has now asked to look through the photos so she can add them to her layout and finish it. Can't wait to see it later.
