Not Your Average Teenage Boy

As I was driving my teenage son to the train station yesterday morning (he had a very early class to prepare for upcoming exams) it occurred to me that he is not your average teenage boy :)

For example, he makes his bed every single day, and his bedroom is always immaculate...

...and he packs himself a healthy lunchbox every morning, including sandwiches and fruit :) These little details are the kind of things that I want to remember! So I got straight into making a scrapbook page to document some of the things that make him...well, him.

The journaling was my main focus of this layout, so I needed to leave plenty of room to include everything I wanted to say....the green grid paper was perfect.  The world map paper by October Afternoon gave it a masculine feel, and suited the photo (which I already had printed, and was taken on the first day of school this year). I hand cut the word bubbles from  a sheet called Chalkboard Quotes from the
Here and Now Collection by Echo Park.

The gold Thickers gave the title a bit of extra ooomph! I may need to buy another set of these...they are very special :)

Hope you are having a lovely day, and thank you for visiting!

WOW, he is an awesome kid! That's great he does all these things on his own and never complains. Could you send him over here to talk to Sam for me, please!!

Why does he take a train to school and why is it so long of a ride? Do the girls do this too?

LOVE LOVE the layout, great letters and the green to journal on. It does look like a boys page, isn't that a nice change sometimes from your girly papers and goodies?!

Keep up the crafting roll, your getting a lot done.

Awww Suzi, what a great page for your album!
Your son sounds like a great boy, but you know a lot of that comes from his family influence...
My mr13 also makes his bed, keeps his room tidy, assists with meal clean up... so much less stressful when kids do what we want, Ha!!
