In laws album






You would think that an 8x8 album should be a breeze to put together, right? Well, it might be. For some people! I have said to Chris, Debbie and Liane in the past week that I think I've become more of a carder than a scrapper any more. Used to be, I'd get pics from my sister of the kids and slam, bam, they were in an album. I was posessed! I still have the pics on the computer of Kyle's Eagle Scout project from last Sept. I still have Christmas pics on the computer. Heck, I've got printed the pics of the kids first day of school! But they are not in an album. With cards, especially if I'm doing a bunch, like the ones for Convention, I come up with my idea, assembly line cut all my cardstock and papers then go to town attaching everything. Anymore, I'd rather do one hundred cards than a two page layout! But I think we will be seeing the in laws this coming Monday. We need to take mom to the Oriental grocery stores in Tampa and I need to get her doll cases fixed for her, so I really wanted to get their album done. I ended up not filling the album and was going to take the empty pages out, but changed my mind. Mom & dad save all of the cards I send to them, so now they will have someplace to store them. And they can look at them whenever they want! So I knuckled down today and got the album completed. And since I'm on a roll with albums, I might just get the kids first day of school pictures scrapped!
Edited to add: This is not the whole album! I just picked 5 random pages to post.
