Scrapbooking...

I love scrapbooking... I love looking at scrapbooks. I have a horrible memory so I love looking and having the memorabilia to take me back and remind me of those milestones.

Its incredible to compare the pictures of my daughter and my son from when she was his age. They look like twins! When Little Miss was born, and before that, I was big into paper scrapbooking. I had a whole room dedicated to it. But as my life changed, so did my time for scrapbooking, or rather lack there of. So I turned to digital scrapbooking, I really enjoyed it but after a computer crash and loosing all of the elements I had downloaded, I got discouraged.

Today I decided that I just can't keep not documenting the important things in my family's lives. I read about an idea where the mom scrapbooks each month for their child. "2 Months" then "3 Months" each a two page layout. I can handle that! I could probably get caught up with Bobo in a weekend or two. If there is more to scrapbook and I feel like it, fine, but if not I won't let myself become overwhelmed.

Little Miss has 3 scrapbooks a few inches thick that only goes up to when she was 9 months old. I felt the need to photograph EVERYTHING (I still do!) but then to scrapbook EVERYTHING. It just isn't practical, I don't have the time to do a layout for each set of cute pictures I take.

Anyway...lots of rambling, but expect some layouts soon! If I don't post them, gently remind me :)
Here are that I did about a year ago of Little Miss :)
