Look what I accomplished.
I have the scrapbook bug. I haven’t got this much done on my scrapbooks in quite a while.
These pages are for Isaac’s personal book. The book he will take when he leaves home.
…and because I didn’t want to make them lug many many books when they leave I only scrap 5 spreads a year for each child.
Here is how I scrapbook:
Family books for me and Jonathan, with every memory and picture recorded. I now even include my blog entries in these books.
Baby books from newborn to one for each of the kids. I include these pages in our family album to keep for myself.
Season albums for the kids from one to college.
Season albums include: A spread(meaning to pages adjacent to one another) for: summer, w inter, spring, fall, and birthday. These pages highlight the most significant events for each season. This helps to cut down on the amount of scrapbooking I have to do. I also had visions of handing my son’s new wife all his albums for the last 2 decades and watching her croak when she had to find somewhere to store them in her little newlywed apartment. See, sometimes I do think ahead.
Can you believe I got 4 spreads or 8 pages done? I can’t. My kids must have been really good this weekend. Actually I planned ahead, and made sure they had something to do. I will fill you in on what that was tomorrow.
