Hey there. I am finally done with my projects for later on this month and have been working on a family project for Christmas. I am putting together a scrapbook for me, my sisters, and my mom. The photos are from our visit this summer with my sister in New York. There were 500 plus photos to go through, organize, crop, and print. I really don't know how I am going to whittle it down to just a few??? There are so many that I love but for this project there isn't room for a whole lot. One of the dilemmas I am facing is picking the photos that make me laugh versus the ones that are portrait quality. The goofy ones really make my heart smile whereas the other ones are more on par for project. Anyhow, I am certain I am going to have to do another project that will be the continuation.... like a "B" side!
What do you think? Any advice for scrapping? My project is a single album for each us. The designs are different but the same papers/embellishments and photos will be used. Actually I made the albums back before we went on the trip and all that is left to have the photos put in. Seems so easy doesn't it?
On a side note, after going through all the photos I noticed who was more photogenic, the most photographed, the most posed, most silly and so on. I never thought I would notice those types of things but I did. Some of those candids are just plain heartwarming and I feel closer to my family even though we are all in different parts of the nation.
So... thanks for reading my blog today and I hope you leave me some advice. I have till Wednesday to get to photos printed.
PHOTO DETAILS: This is one of my treasured photos from the family shoot. I'm not sure which one of my sisters took this snapshot but I love it! It's of me and my all grown-up son. He still lives in Alaska and I miss him so much.
