Though they teased me about it, at the start, I gave them all a sheet titled Scrapbooking 101, that listed tips, tools, and a couple of websites for their future use. For the first round I had prepared kits for their first page that included a copy of a sketch (thank you Pinterest), paper and all the cut out elements needed for the page and protective sleeve, All that was needed were the photos. They could either follow the sketch or alter it as they saw fit. The second round was a free for all. A third round eventually came around. We cropped out around 1 this morning (we started at 1 Saturday afternoon). The entire time was filled with "ooh's" and "ah's" at everyone's memories and layouts. Of course laughter and teasing filled the air the entire time.
Overall, I think some may have been surprised at how creative they could be. My girls are talented, take a look.
