mini album inspiration: this is me (boy)
The post before this one shows 15-year-old Ele’s Mini Album. This is her 13-year-old brother Thomas. His goal in life is to be famous, so today – I am making him famous. He is famous for being one of the coolest kids on the planet. He is kind-hearted, good-natured, hard-working, smart as a whip, athletic, musical, helpful … and he wants to be a summer intern for our business. ; )
But you know what makes him especially cool right now? He just documented all about his life – his likes + dislikes, skills, interests, extracurricular activities, goals, grades, friends, even his weekend routine … and he used Aunt Becky’s Project Life Mini Album (the Midnight color) and a Childhood Mini Kit: Wellington Edition. So he has serious bonus points with me right now.
PLUS — He is setting a fantastic example to young men everywhere. Documenting life by jotting down some notes and putting them together with pictures? That’s just awesome sauce (says me – not him – because I am not current with what kids say these days).
We approached this little Spring Break project the same way we did with Ele (check out the steps in her post). This whole thing really took all of a couple of hours so it’s not even a “big” project. It’s fun. It’s easy. It’s self-esteem-boosting. And it spans across all ages.
NOTE 1: The prompts on the Childhood Mini Kits are designed and worded in a way that offers FLEXIBILITY. A parent can write on these cards about their child or a child can write on these cards about themselves or an adult can write on these cards about their childhood past.
NOTE 3: The Childhood Mini Kits come with 100 cards (80 are 3×4 and 20 are 4×6 and they’re all double-sided for even more versatility). But they do not “have” to be paired with a Project Life Mini Album. In fact, my main purpose in developing these Mini Kits is to be used in a child’s “regular” 12×12 albums – if that’s what you do. I’ll be sharing more inspiration for that in the coming weeks.
