Its Been Awhile...

Yesterday I got invited to go scrapbook, and I was so excited. This is seriously the first time I have scrapbooked in 3 years! :) I had so much fun and I am so excited to start scrapbooking again. :) I used the retired Simply Scrappin Kit Creative License to make these pages, so fun....and I have to say that I am loving Simply Scrappin Kits. :) Anyway, just wanted to share because I am so proud. :)

Also, I want your thoughts....I had always planned to make a scrapbook/books for each child and then one for myself, I still want to, but at the same time don't want to make a bunch of duplicate pages, so I was wondering what you do? Do you have one for each kid or just one big one for yourself and then your kids can fight over it later? :) Any thoughts would be great!

so cute, great pages. For me, I scrapbook for me. My books are mine and they can color copy them when they are older if they want but I think that in 20 years they will probably be outdated and my boys wives might not want them. so I scrapbook for me and right now my boys have fun looking at the pages I create esp the ones with their pictures :)

I haven't scrapbooked in a long time either. But what do I WANT to do, you ask? I want to have a scrapbook for each of my children. I will do 8 1/2 x 11 size and I think I will scrapbook a few pages per year or something, and then put their pictures in photo sleeves behind the pages of that event or whatever. Make sense? Then they don't have so much. Anyway...these pages ARE DARLING! LOVE THEM! :) So cute!

I can't believe how fast the time has gone since those pictures were taken of him. I used to make fun of my mom for saying that time flys and it DOES! Enjoy every little minute because before you know it, your babies will be grown up and having their own. I love being a grandma and mother. Only the best jobs in the whole world! P.S. You are a GREAT mother!

I make one family and one for each child. I have 5 kidsandamonly about 5 years behind:) I have about 35 albums finished so far. My kids love their books, theirs has things like report cards, artwok, speeding tickets etc. My family mostly photo and journaling.

Very cute pages and super cute photos!!!
I feel very crazy, but I really want to make books for each child AND me. I'm way, way behind but this way they each have their own "story". I try to personalize even shared family events to mix it up- for my sake as much as anything! :)

What cute pages!! Those photos are adorable, I love that little hat!

I don't have kids, so haven't faced your dilemma, but I know my sister-in-law has one book for each child (3 total). I don't know how "caught up" she is, however! lol!
