Another Max Layout

So, I really, really was inspired by Amy Sorenson's series on scrapbooking your teen, because here is another one. Sam has started to notice that Max has been the subject of the latest layouts, so I'll have to catch up on some Sam layouts soon. Luckily, he doesn't mind having his picture taken.

I really like this one. It is not something I would normally think to scrapbook, but inspired by the above mentioned series, I was really searching for something that would tell a little about where Max is right now. What are some things that he is into? The answer, South Park. But, I also like a little story to go with my layout, so I decided to journal about the decision to allow Max to watch South Park. Which basically boils down to this: He's a good kid and a smart kid, and as long as he can tell which behaviors and language are funny on TV, but not in real life, I'm good. And from what I've seen so far,  I trust him in this regard.


  1. Hi Aliza! Thanks for popping by my blog. I seriously love this layout of Max AND I love the story that goes with it.

  2. Oh!! Wonderful layout. And, unreal........I have one on my desk I started yesterday with the very same paper selections and alpha!!!

  3. What a great twist/addition to the story of Max being into South Park. Thank you for turning me on to Amy's series, and for sharing your inspired layouts and stories. I gave my kids a little questionairre the other day to spark some ideas for pages, and was disappointed in my son's curt answers. The process was definitely worthwhile, and my daughter gave very thoughtful responses. You've shed new light on my son's, though, and now I think I will be able to build some stories around them. :)
