My son is a Scrapper :)

Riley (who is 4 next month) has always watched me scrap. He helps out with cutting with my fiskars cutters, he punches shaped out for me, hammers my eyelets and helps out in lots of different ways. I finally thought it was time for him to do his own LO ... he LOVED it!!
This is his first effort ... He did everything himself, picked the paper the embelishments everything ... I did help him with spelling the title.

This is his second LO, he did it this morning ... he needed a little help with the eyelets (I did guide him in wanting to use the eyelets!!) but again like his first effort he chose everything himself, and again I helped him spell the title, he was very dissapointed I didn't have a number 5 the same as the star letters, also that I didn't have a 4th stop sign for the 4th corner of the photo!!

I am so proud of him :) He seems to have a simplistic style, prefering to put a small amount of embelishment to enhance the photo lol But I LOVE it!! I can't wait until payday so I can run off and get an album for him to keep his LOs in :)
The only downfall of having another scrapper in the family is that I have to share my stash!!!
