Honorable Mention

Scrapbooking - 11 yr. My daughter turned 11 in August. She likes having a sleepover party, but we wanted to work in scrapbooking. Instead of having the girls bring their own pictures, I thought we could take pictures of them together.

At 2:30 p.m., guests met us at Sunsplash, a water park. I brought two waterproof cameras ($7.50 ea.) and a bouquet of flowers ($7). The four girls took pictures of each other splashing, jumping in the water, going down water slides, and posing with flowers (in each others faces and behind heads like antennae), and I took some pictures with my camera.

At 5:00 my husband took the film to be developed in one hour (double prints) while we played in the water longer and then ate pizza. We picked up the photos ($18) on the way home. The week before, I picked up view front binders ($1.79 ea.), color paper, photo splits and glue dots to stick on pictures($5), 3-hole punched standard sheet protectors ($3 for 50 and acid-free), and water/beach/friends theme stickers/die cuts ($25).

We went home, opened gifts, ate cake, and then spread out different-edged scissors, punches, stickers, and paper on the dining room table. We had each of the girls choose 15 pictures to start, then it was a free-for-all with the leftover pictures. Amazingly, we had plenty of great pictures. They each made a cover and 6-8 pages.

We started scrapbooking about 8:30 p.m., and I had to make them stop at 1:00 a.m.! It was a sleepover party, so I took some more pictures of them munching goodies, crashed in their sleeping bags (all zonked by 2:00 - halfway through a Mary Kate & Ashley video), and eating breakfast the next morning.

After we got those developed, my daughter did a couple more pages of the sleepover part. The girls had a great time! Two of the girls had never really done their own scrapbooking, only helped their moms. They enjoyed the independence of doing it themselves, and now they are hooked!
