It's a Time Machine Page
I love how this page covers three different stages of a kids life. This is a great idea for those scrappers who don't know where to start. Just look for a central theme amoungst your photos and pull your pictures from differnt time periods. It a great way to express change, maturity or the transitions in life. I have done the this type of page with my brother holding my son at different times of his life. It shows the progression of their relationship.
