Scrapbooking is Done for Now

I finally got done with the scrapbook that I started last month.   have been putting it off  until yesterday, I got tired of looking at it in our  craft table so I did not turn on my computer yesterday morning and concentrated in finishing it.  So glad I did because I don't have to see it on top of  our table lol.
I still have one more project to do though.  I am planning to surprise my husband  with a scrapbook  that is just for him and I. 
 The two scrapbook that I finished yesterday was for my son and daughter.  I compiled their school activities and  stuff.
Whenever I see  a scrapbook on sale, I always  make sure to grab some because it is so much fun  making it with the kids.  I never had any memento of my childhood as my family  experienced  fire and   super storm which literally burned down and washed away  our homes.  I never had any recollection of how I look like growing up.  That's why I am so obsessed of documenting my children's milestones.  I hope that they will appreciate these stuff when hubby and I are now here anymore.

so nice to look at them, and soon enough it would be a memory to recall when we are old.

That is so nice you do scrapbooking mommy. I did start years ago, but then when we moved I stopped. It would be nice to go back to scrapbooking again. It sure if fun and what a great hobby.

I haven't scrap booked anything since high school and that is a long, long time ago. I've been so attached to digital printing that I need to get started using more crafts in real life to be more productive. Thank you for sharing an inspirational post.

I used to scrapbook a lot. I have books & books that are done, but I got behind and just stopped all together. The thought of even trying to catch up was too overwhelming.

Elise said...

I've never done any scrapbooking, though I really want to so we can have fun looking through all of our pictures and whatnot. Someday... when I feel more comfortable with making a huge mess LOL.

Teresa McCluskey said...

I LOVE making scrapbooks! I have a little OCD with it! I have a HUGE tote of stuff just for scrapbooking and a huge tote of photos!

Cascia Talbert said...

Looks like you had a lot of fun. I sure wish I had time to scrapbook. Instead I save all my family's memories on my blog. Have a terrific weekend!

V@ said...

I have never done scrapbooking! When I see yours I do see that it would be fun as memories!

Amberlee said...

I really want to get back into scrapbooking! It is so much fun and a great way to keep photos! Yours look great!

I have made several scrap books in the past. Once I found out about photo books, I stopped scrapbooking. I loved scrapbooking but it is just so easier for me to create photo books. The photo books aren't as creative as scrapbooks but they sure do come close. You can select the background, stickers, layout, photo amount, ect.

Hayz, good for you sister! :) I still have some works to do and stuffs that needs to be put away. LOL!

Pam said...

I used to scrapbook when my kids were younger. Yours are super cute!

I have not made a scrap book in ages but I really used to love it - it was so nice putting things together. x

Ave said...

I have been thinking on starting scrapbooking too, but never really got to it. Hope I have more time soon and I can start recollecting my daughter's first year memories.

I really appreciate the art and heart and creativity that goes in scrapbooking

Amanda Love said...

I've never scrapbooked before and I've always wanted to. I've seen some really nice ones including yours and I'm always amazed at how awesome they look.

Jennifer Williams said...

What a great job. I started trying to scrap book back in 2000 and it still sits on the floor. I do not have the talent for it. Maybe you can teach me!

MikiHope said...

I am positive your kids will love their memory scrapbooks that you are so thoughtfully putting together for them. Your husband will also appreciate the effort you put into making one for the two of you.

Joanna Sormunen said...

Your scrapbooks look really lovely! I love the idea of scrapbooking but I'm just not very crafty and creative that way :( But I do take tons of pictures so I have those memories at least with my son :)

Pam said...

It is wonderful that you finished these scrapbooks. Your kids will appreciate this years from now. I wished I would have done so for my kids.

April McGregor said...

awww that is really nice.:) I wish i have the patience to do that. Our photos are all in the hard drive.

Amanda McMahon said...

I need to really look at taking time to really do some scrapbooking - or sell my stuff! Seriously!

Tough Cookie Mommy said...

I've always really loved scrapbooking but I am not that creative and I just didn't know where to start.
