I'm not sure if it's nesting (I'm expecting my 5th child right now), or if it's just needing to clean house, but I've been on a mission to get my scrapbooking caught up. It's been about a year and a half since I went from taking film pictures to digital pictures. When I switched to digital, I've left those on the computer, with the goal of getting all the photos I had developed from film into albums.
Now, this might not seem so overwelming, but I do an album for the family, and then one for each of my four kids. I have all the kids, but my oldest caught up on film. My intension is to switch to digital albums after those are finished for the kids and continuing my scrapbooking with my family album. I love to scrapbook with real papers, stickers, etc. but, find that I can't keep up with all the fancies with 5 (soon to be 6) albums at a time. The digital albums will be a one time working commitment, and then ordering 4 or 5 copies for each of the kids! This should cut my time by 80%, making the family albums more enjoyable!
So, I thought I would share with you, what I did. First, I sorted all the pictures so they are in chronilogical order. Then, I layout all the pages alternating with layout sheets, so I can see on one big table all of the pages for the album.
