      I just want to know if this happens to anyone else:
      Audra LOVES it when I make layouts with her pictures. In fact, she likes to go through all of the embellies and try to tell me which ones to use! And, she gets jealous when I make layouts that she's not in. I have tried to be equal, and go back and forth, like one of her, then one of Owen, and so on. But, when I have stuff laid out to work on layouts of the boys, she acts funny. Do your kids act like this too?

      Well I have only my daughter but she prefers when I'm working on something about her… if she is not on the layout and knows that she isn't going to be she gets a little more demanding and makes it a bit harder to complete my project, lol. She's now starting to try to help me more than before if she requires my attention… she'll look at the page and say… well that is pretty but do you want to know what I would do… If I say sure hunny… she will move EVERYTHING around while I just cringe although the last time she did it to me I liked her design better then what I had going on so I thanked her and keeped going with her design. She was very pleased… lol… so was I!

        Well my daughter or son do not start acting funny. They love seeing their pictures especially the baby pictures and guessing who it is. But I get the where is mine question. I honestly admit I do more layouts of my daughter. I'm trying to balance too but it's hard due to certain papers and working from printed pictures already. ( I need to print more- too lazy rt now). What helps me is that I keep a set of pictures on my desk of both of them and they like flipping through them as I work. And I tell them their picture is next.

          My 6 kids are jelous of my scrapbooking. But will bring their friends over and show them my work. They invite their friends to look at my scrapbook room and they call it the store. I do try to take tus with the layouts. Each Child Has a book that were my mom's photos of them unfortunately it still makes them sad because she is not with us anymore. 4 of my girls will scrapbook with me from time to time. I do have my stash and stuff they can use.

            Yes! My Autism layout was spurred by Austin being jealous of all the layouts I was making of my neice. Make the next one about me! So, i did. My daughter has her own handme down scrapstash and makes her own LOs as well, although she keep making scrapbooks and giving them away-just like me.. 🙂

              Well, I think that is wonderful, Tracey. I wish Owen cared! Audra has TONS of scrap supplies too, but she is all up in my business about what I am doing!

              Funny – my kids couldn't care less. They like the work I do and oooh and ahhh when it's done but they don't care who it is of. Or if they do, they don't say anything to me.

              #129804

              My son, who is an only child, was jealous of the younger cousins that came along after him. Yep, he was that way and not subtle about it, either!j He was my first and only, first grandchild, first great-grandchild…He's 24 now and I think he's finally outgrown it. I
              think…

                  All my children are adults and really couldn't care less. I wish my daughter had some interest …but no!!

                    My (grownup) sons are polite. My DIL really wants to see. Her mother is my most enthusiastic fan; she makes cards and can appreciate the time, effort and creativity. Oh, and she has one of my LOs hanging in her living room.

                    Rae, has Audra gotten worse since Elijah was bo? I'm wondering if maybe she sees your scrapping her as giving her special attention that does not involve her brothers.

                      My kids love my scrapbook pages!! They don't care who the page is of.

                      "Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

                      My girls like my pages IF (in their opinion) I take the right picture.

                        Paulien, do they ever special request a LO with a certain photo?

                        Does anyone get those kinds of requests???
