A Conversation With Simon | Scrapbook Layout

Cathy released this great layered template a few weeks ago at Designer Digitals: Story Guide Layered Template No.1. I've been wanting to do it with Simon since I saw it and finally had a chance last night.

You can read her post about the template and see her hybrid version here.

This is going right into our Project Life album for this week.

My favorite one?

The coolest person on Earth is: Me.

    He is pretty cool.. and it is so so cute that he thinks that! Hope he keeps thinking that because confidence in yourself is so important.

    oh my goodness ali this is so cute and funny and heartwarming. I love that he said to be a "father" Chris must be so proud of that one. The spaghetti is what my son would say and the running part too. I love the photos you included especially the outside one it's always a favorite of mine. He is getting so tall and older looking and more handsome.
    I loved it when Cathy showed us this template and told her I wish our parents knew about doing this when we were young. Are you putting this in your PL for the week? Thanks for sharing with us he is awesome!!

    Oh Ali that is so special. His answers must bring tears to your eyes I'm guessing. I love his 3 describing words for himself....and the food that makes him want to puke. Lots of fun for sure.

    Wonderful! I did the same thing with each of my four and their answers were fabulous. Definitely something to treasure - a little moment in time. (And just one more reason I should have done Project Life!)

    very cool -- I did something like this for my girls --- I think it was an old Becky Higgins interview -- anyway did it in January -- I thought I would do it mid-year (probably on their birthdays since they are in May) and then again at the end of the year -- put in my PL too -- here is the link to mine:

    I like that he wants to be a father. That says a lot about both of you as parents.

    Love his answers. What a great idea. I've done something like this with my three-year-old, asking questions off the top of my head, but I really like the prompts they give you. The template is great. I think I might have to do this for my niece and nephew (12 and 8). Thanks for the great inspiration.

    Love this. I did an interview type layout with my oldest several years ago. I think I want to repeat the questions and see how they've changed over the years.

    I did too the "conversation with my son" the minute I saw it on Cathy's blog, and I must say that I was quite surprised at some of the answers like my son telling me he wants to be a cook so that he gets to eat good food. This is sure going to be a very precious page in a few years!

    Thank you so much for sharing this with us, Ali. My favorite answer was about being a father when he grows up. It must be such a testament to both you and Chris as parents of this wonderful little boy.
