Leap Year Scrapbooking Idea

Here's a bonus for you... I did these Scrapbook pages back in 2000. I took an "unusual" day (February 29th) and took picture of very "usual" activities. I've been contemplating doing this again this year. I'd like to do at least a page per child instead of one for the whole family. The two that are in college are supposed to take pictures for me.
I thought I would put that idea out there for other fellow scrappers. I'll take pictures of every day events that I don't usually think to photograph-- from getting ready for school to the bus stop to homework to dinner and bed time. They are going to be so sick of me by the end of the day, because I have a digital camera now. I'll probably take lots more than I did back in 2000.

This layout was done with no product, except white card stock and markers. I wanted it to look like a Peanuts cartoon, just because I love Peanuts.

Jacki - this is really really great - so much more interesting and fun for the family than a traditional layout. Hope you submit it to a mag or competition - you'd win hands down!
