Only scrap the best photos. A scrapbook is not about archiving every single photo you take. A scrapbook is about saving the memories you charish. A good photo album is where you can keep many of your photos - simply labled, not decorated. Don't get the two confused. My children made that abundantly clear to me about 3 years ago when they were looking at their albums. They would turn pages quickly because "all these pictures are boring and the same." They didn't want to see a page of 5 photos of themselves with "slightly" different smiles or positions. D.U.L.L. The pages they stopped at were the ones that had a captivating photo of an experience that interested them.



That said, I am now a digital scrapbook enthusiast. I can make a page anywhere because everthing I need is on my computer (and a small external harddrive - LOL). I have never been so caught up in the 10 years I have been scrapping.

I have started digital scrapping, which is just as good except it saves time on having to print photos, cut, paste, clean up etc... the results are just as good and any I really like I can print.

Yeah I'm sure if you search around you could find a group like the other poster said it would help. That way you have a set time to go and be with other women and away from kids! Check out scrapbook stores if you don't have a consultant near you.

I participate in a monthly "event" hosted by my Creative Memories consultant. She charges $5 (if you bring a snack) and $10 if you don't. We have anywhere from 5 -15 people that bring all of their "stuff" and we borrow and get ideas from each other. I usually don't have any time at home so making a monthly appointment is a nice stress releiver.

I'm not a salesperson - but I do know that CM has a lot of organizational ideas and products to keep you up to date. Hope this helps!
