There's no disguising how her daughter feels about having to clean the toilet. Doing a scrapbook page on such a topic is a fun way to capture the day-to-day life. Look at your candid snapshots and see what kind of stories you can tell.

To further her page theme, Cindy Tobey spared a square of toilet paper to make fluffy flowers. Learn how you can create this look on your page!
