NEW SCRAPPER - JOSEPH PARKER I'm on the Scrap Our Stash Design Team... and I do challenges every week and Joseph knows all about he told me he wanted to do a scrapbook page this week.  He actually did that twice this week.  This is his 2nd layout this week...  (I'll post the other one later)...  I submitted it to my SOS DT challenge for May which is to scrap something "outside your box" and it was posted on that blog today.  I wanted to post it here too.   Below is the verbiage and his layout:

Hi, my name is Joseph and my momma is a scrapbooker. I wanted to do a scrapbook page this week so I asked Momma to help me. I picked pictures of me and Kyle playing Super Soakers. I asked for half white paper and half blue paper. Momma made me pick out the blue. Then I got crayons out of my homework box and melted them like drips of water.

Momma (Joni Parker) here...noting that 1) he is done explaining... 2) I held the heat gun 3) the rest of the story is..... he dug through my extensive alphabet collection to pick out letters that were "kind of cursivey" (his words). And then wrote (with pen) the "journaling". 

The reason we are submitting this layout is because when my 6 year old son decided he wanted to "do challenges" with me, I felt that the more the merrier!! So, I figured this was a good place to start. Talk about "outside the box"!!! 6 year old, MALE...melting crayons on a scrapbook page? Yep!

And...I encourage you to get your kids involved in your "ART" -- I had a total blast just watching him be creative and telling me what he wanted next. After an hour (or less), he was done and I was able to get back to work.....INSPIRED by my own son!!

Thanks for letting him share!! I've told him that he gets to read the comments that you guys leave about his layout, so PLEASE leave him some love!!


  1. Joseph, this page is AWESOME, I love the melted crayon idea, how creative! Good work and can't wait to see what you do next!
