This year, I'm using a scrapbook system called "project life." The system is basically a kit with coordinating accessories and divided page protectors. Most scrapbookers who use this system do a 2-page spread for every week of the year. (!!!) At the end of the year, the family has a nice summary of the year's events. In addition to the photos, most people incorporate lots of journaling and info into their scrapbook.
I'm doing a much more scaled down version. Two pages per week is more than I have time to keep up with. My personal goal is to do a 2-page spread for every month of 2011. If I like this system, I'll keep going in future years as well.
I've completed the bare bones version of my January pages. I have other bits & bobs that I'd like to add. Also, I have some journaling that I plan to include. I'll post again when I'm completely finished with the January pages.
Hopefully this little kit will result in a fun family album, full of 2011 memories. I hope my hubby and children will enjoy flipping through it.
