Sigh . . . .
For my grandson's Third Birthday I made a chalk poster documenting his favorite things . . .
his other favorite thing is to swing. So taking the picture of him in front of the swings was perfect!
My daughters idea . . . . . have to confess :-) So two things are remembered in this memory making art,
what he looks like at three and what his interests were . . . .
I used chalk for this, it's what I had with me at the time. I have read where others have used
Crayola florescent markers. They do draw well on the black poster board. But on this day I awoke
early and was down at the beach securing our spot for the party!! It was such a great weekend.
Now his sister's birthday is coming up soon and I saw another idea
doing the same thing in Photoshop. But needed a background . . . . so I googled a background of
old wood and then just wrote out her favorite things and instead of doing it for her birthday I am writing
about First Grade and adding the year. these are actually her Kindergarten favorites so will change
this for my book I am going to make her. But you get the idea, right?
I have ten grandchildren and digital folders on each, either one of these ideas are great for
documenting the years . . . such fun times and before I know it I will have a collection of great
memories to place in a book for each of them! HS Graduation here we come!
