I finally dug through all my boxes of pictures ! I didn't start scrapping until a few years ago and my marriage is 25 years old and my kids 18 and 20. SOOOO, there are LOTS AND LOTS of pictures to be put down on paper.
I decided to make collages and use up papers I haven't looked at in a while and use the mountains of fun stickers I have boxes of. I am not going in chronological order or saving 20-30 pictures per event in my life. I just put pictures in piles of 3-6ish or so and put the piles in a box and then I would just reach in the box, pull out a pile of picures and start scrapping. It's been fun and not stressful at all :)
Here are some CM papers and stickers I used for 1st day of school pics of my kids from around yr. 2001. My next pile might be my daughters 2nd bday, who knows, either way it will be fun to get them in a book!
