One of my major goals before the baby is born next month is to finish everyone's scrapbooks for 2010. I really would love to start all five scrapbooks on 2011 too but I need to be realistic because I have four quilts I also need to finish up along with a tote bag and a skirt. I don't want to push myself to hard. So after a major scrapbooking push this week I finished of my oldest child's scrapbook! It took five days of hard work and 30 two-page layouts. I'm so excited!
I hope to have the other ones finished soon. I wasn't as far behind with the rest of them and only have Thanksgiving to the end of the year to do for the other four scrapbooks. Piece of cake, right?
|This is the first batch of 12 layouts. I do them in batches so when I type up all the captions it doesn't take forever to proof read them, print them out, and glue them on. I finished these on Thursday.|
|Here's my favorite page from the first batch.I love the colors and the balls along the side. I especially love the ticket that I managed to keep for nearly three years and remember where it was.|
|This is the second batch. They were fun to make with Halloween. I always love scrapbooking the holidays. I finished these on Saturday.|
|Here's my favorite from that batch. I don't know if you can tell on the computer but the burgundy paper perfectly matches my little man's tie! I have paper stash like some people have fabric stash and it was just perfect!|
|Here's the last batch of the year. I finished the pages for these on Sunday night and wrote out the captions but didn't get them glued on until this afternoon. I feel such a great sense of accomplishment!|
|Here's my favorite page from this set. These pictures were so fun to take and even more fun to scrapbook with my fancy fall paper.|
|Here's the finished scrapbook all ready for the shelf. It ended up being around three inches wide. I sure make them big! My hubby says I probably have more pictures of my kids in one year then he has of his whole childhood and we love it!|
