Scrapbook in a Box

Scrapbooking is so versatile! We are so lucky to be involved in an art that can be showcased in so many ways. I made this scrapbook in a box for my Mom. I just used basic black and white colors – even for the photos. Because there are 4 of us “kids”, having the 4 sides of the box was perfect for scrapping each of the siblings and our families.

On the following layers I put photos of the grandchildren then the great grandchildren (I can’t remember if I had room for the great, great grandkids).
