Want more tween boy ideas?
I just made 3 more pages for Aiden’s album and you can see them come together in the Paperclipping video we added to the Member’s Area.
This video is all about working on the back sides of non-traditional pages, such as pocket pages or corner-rounded smaller-sized pages. Many scrapbookers don’t know what to do with the backs of these pages after scrapbooking in the fronts of them for a traditional album.
But all 3 of the pages in this episode are also tween boy layouts.

Do you enjoy scrapbooking about your sweet, crazy boy? Sometimes I forget that I very much do!
Looking at these pages in his album recently has made me very happy, and reminded me how fun it can be to scrapbook about boys!
