Oh I hear you! I have twin 5 year olds and a four year old and I don't get the opportunity to scrapbook until they are in bed. Usually by that time I am tired myself so I don't get much done if I even start a page at all. However I did start a once-a-month get together with my sister an girlfriend and that has really proved to be a great way to get some pages done. Patty is right, if you start with most recent photos you don't feel so overwhelmed because details are still fresh and you will actually want to start tackling some of your older photos. I am currently working on my son's nursery/pre-school book. Happy scrapping everyone!

I have been scrapbooking and a consultant for over 7 years. The most common comment I receive is "I forget all the details of the event, trip, etc." Tip: Keep all photos organized cronologically and keep a pad of paper to write down special moments, funny phrases the kids said, etc. with your photos. When you get you pics back, date the paper with the event and write all those memories. Put the paper with the photos, events, memorbilia and then when you have time to scrapbook all your info, memories are together.

Also: If you're behind on your scrapbooking, start with current photos, those are the memories freshest in your mind and will motivate you to get the others in albums.

Happy scrapping - Hope this helps someone.

Oh how I understand! I have been scrapbooking for almost 8 years now and I did really well until my daughter was born 4 years ago, I still was able to sort of at least do a baby book for her, but we added twins to our family back in March and I don't think I have done more than 5 pages since that time. I am just praying that I will be able to catch up one of these days. My only fear is that it will not be until they are all in school!:)

My first son has 3 scrapbooks complete. My second has 2. My third has one started and so does my 4th child--the lone girl. My fifth and baby of the group has nothing started yet :( I know I'll catch up some day, but I hope it is soon and that being in this group inspires me.
