    Last weekend I went to Walgreens and had almost 500 photos printed (shhhh don't tell hubby he thought those were printed a long time ago) On Sunday I moved all my scrapping stuff into the family room and pretty much set up my "island". On Monday after getting the kiddos fed I parked myself on my little "island" and started scrapping. I parked myself around 10am and only got up a couple of times, packed everything up about 9pm. I was amazed when I went thru what I accomplished this morning. I managed to get 18 pages done. [​IMG] I love scrapping when I have days like that.

    Happy Scrapping

    I do the same thing in my dining room. I just love to scrap. I have found that I like to buy larger books and just keep it as a work in progress over smaller one that I fill with just one event.

    I didn't get any chick pics done. I didn't have any printed. I'm trying to get my kids into the books.

    I used to keep what seemed like a separate book for everything, but I've since decided to just keep it all in order as it happens. My kiddos love to sit and go thru the albums so I decided to keep them in order.

    I managed to get a few more pages done this week, can't wait for the weekend so I can get back on my "island" and scrap away.

    Happy scrapping

    I haven't scrapped in forever!

    so do you go chronologically? I just put my favorite pics as we find them.

    all time favorite is my dad and a friend posing with santa (we don't celebrate christmas, and I think it was taken in egypt where it would be quite a feat to actually find someone in a santa costume)

    GEE! Thanks for supporting Walgreens! My Hubby is the manager of the first one opened in Maine! I think you should have another 500 printed there!

    I have never gotten into scrapbooking.... I just keep photos in plain old photo albums and on the puter hard drive. [​IMG]
