I am finally getting caught up on my scrapbooking! Usually, I buy pictures in smaller bunches, but since shipping costs are so high, I wait until I get a huge batch of photos, then I order a huge pile at once. So, I was still working on my previous batch of photos starting from Christmas (I know, I know, I'm so behind!!!) through early spring. I am catching my second batch up, which I will probably order later in the fall.
Organization, that's how I do it in case you were wondering. As soon as I get pictures in, I can't help but look. So, while I am thumbing through the pictures to see how they turned out (gawking actually) I go ahead and separate them out for what pages they are going on. That's the first LARGEST hurdle with scrapbooking. Figuring out what each page is going to be about. I tend to keep the theme about what the pictures are about. Like I said, I am very adament about taking pictures of everything, a camerholic I guess :).
Here are some of the pages I completed last night:
Caden at the "Airplane Store" or the Udvar-Hazy Air/Space Museum:
Caden Playing Soccer:
Caden on Daddy's motorcycle (it was still, I promise):
Some items I did differently today? With the kite photo, I actually had to make the kite!! Apparently, kites aren't cool anymore and you cannot find stickers or any other sort of scrapbooking thing about flying kites. At least making a kite was pretty easy with some simple paper (diamond shape) and some ribbon. I used the kite as my comment section, so double usage! With the motorcycle page, I found some scrap paper from another kit, and I chopped the edges of one side to make it look jagged. I think it goes well with the "crazykid" theme.
