Scrapbooking Discussion

When my daughter got her first bike she went to the hardware store with her father to pick out a helmet. Like all girls her age she is infatuated with Dora so when she saw the Dora helmet with matching elbow and knee pads she couldn’t resist and if would make her feel more comfortable about wearing a helmet, no problem.

Scrapbooking Notes:

I arranged the two 4” X 6” photos in opposite corners with the same amount of space (3/8”) between the photo and the edge of the paper on both sides and attached them with double sided adhesive. Using with my personal trimmer I cropped the photo of her riding her new bike down so the focus was on only her and the bike and to make it fit into the layout. I arranged this photo so it overlapped the two 4” X 6” photos to connect not only the photos but also the experience because the photos were all taken on the same day. I used the phrases from the Dora Phrase paper as journaling because they tie in with the experiences she was having that day. The English and Spanish phrases came attached to each other. In one case I left them together and the other ones I separated and attached them (with double sided adhesive) above and below the photo they represent. I centered the “Exploring with Dora!” phrase with the Spanish translation below it in the space between the two 4” X 6” photos because it explains the action in those photos. I centered the “I love you!” phrase above the photo of her and her father (cropped down with my personal trimmer to focus on just them) and centered the Spanish version below the photo. To tie in with the Dora theme of the layout and to fill in a small empty space I included an image of Dora from the Dora Phrase paper. I lined it up with the photo above it for symmetry and it fills in the space nicely as well as adding a bit of contrasting color.
