  • Lisa - I love this idea! Kind of want to make one for myself. It sounds like your daughter is a bit of a scrapbooker in the making, which made me think of Project Life (which I so love) – not sure if you’ve heard of it, but it’s great for this lifestyle (I found your blog on the FS bloggers group :)) – basically provides a really easy way to scrapbook.
