Sketches for All Ages

This week over at Sketch Support, we had a special feature called "Sketches for All Ages" with some easy steps on how to scrapbook with your kids.  I was on vacation with my family and forgot to send my layout in.  Oops!

So, today I am going to share with you the layout that my son, Landon, age 4, has put together.  I went ahead and cut all of the strips and the background piece of paper out for him and with a little direction (I used a pencil to mark where the paper should be placed) this is what he came up with.  He did a great job!!!

What is your best tip for other scrapbookers? 
It's a secret! Only mommy can know.

This was the first time I had ever let Landon actually scrapbook a page with pictures and a sketch.  Usually, I just give him some paper and cut a few things out with my Cricut and let him create his own project. 

Below are a few pictures of him creating his layout. 

This picture (below) cracks me up because Landon was repositioning the strip because it wasn't straight.  I think maybe he has watched me scrapbook one too many times.


  1. Awesome page Landon! You did a great the Elmo stickers and how you flipped the sketch. Whoo Hoo!!! Isn't this fun?

  2. Adorable page! So glad I got to see it!!

  3. Thank you Amy! He was so proud of his layout that he asked me to hang it up at work. It looks great in my office.

    Thank you Erica!
