Ninja Nick

Pin It!

I've been busy with lots of projects lately. I've been up to my eyeballs in photos! My beautiful Grandson, Kyler is so much fun to scrapbook. I have been working on getting all the photos that I have taken of the little guy in my special scrapbook of him. I am making it in a 8 1/2" X 11" size so I can easily scan and print out a copy to give to them also.

My son, Nick, is testing for his 4th degree black belt in Karate in June. I thought it would be special to make him a scrapbook of all his Karate pictures that I have. He began karate in September of 1997. This has been a huge part of his life and is now his career. I couldn't be prouder of him. Yesterday I worked like a crazy woman on this project and was able to get 28 pages done!!! Since most of the pictures are of the same thing (belt testing, competitions, parades) it was a challenge to find different ways to scrap the same but give it a unique look. I think I was keep each page interesting and with Nick's personality in it. Because I did so many pages at one time I will go back and do some final touches, like journaling. But I was very happy with my accomplishment. Today I am pretty whooped from yesterdays scrap-a-thon so I doubt I will get as much done but I hope to get a bunch done! How rewarding!

Congratulations! It can be a bit boring when you have so many of the same but you've done a great job of making each one unique.

You did an awesome job Christie. It may be the same, but to see him grow throughout the years makes it different!

Well done Christie. I don't think they are boring but you had enough variety to make it fun but still all work together!

Great job on the layouts with alot of different variety. I agree that it can be challenging to do the smae layouts all the time, my husband and I belong to a certain brand tractor club and I've been doing the history on the club in a scrapbook and find it hard to make decisions for the same reasons you feel into. I think that it gives us a challenge as a scrapper to do these once in while. congrats on getting so many done in one day, too.

I love the pages of your son and grandson. My grandson is taking Karate. He just earned his red belt. He is 8 years old. He plans to have his black belt by the time he is 12. I think it is a wonderful thing and you certainly have given them something very special to remember it by. Great job once again!
