Back to work

I've been so busy working on this album for my son, that I totally forgot about the blog. I am going to work on taking pictures of all of the pages that I did. Of course I used my cricut expression!

I thought that I would start off with what I want to accomplish. I have organized my photos. Yes, 3 decades of pictures in CM sortboxes just waiting to be scrapped. The question is how.
Do I digital scrapbook? Or do traditional albums?
I have to do a traditional album for my son who is graduating this year from HS. My oldest daughter will also graduate from College in Dec. 2009.
Here I've added pics of how my photo organizing started and where I finished.

You'll notice that I have cardboard boxes, plastic bins, bags and drawers filled with photos.

I used CM sort boxes and a photo labeling pencil and went to work.

I couldn't believe how many photos that I had. There were almost 3 decades of pictures!

My next goal is to get my son's pictures scanned and organized so that I can start his album! I have Monday off! Yeah! I have a crop next Sunday and a full 3 days away in Feb!
I hope that in the next few days, I can go through the years and pick out his photos that I want to scan. My pictures after 2005 are digital. How I wish they all were. But, I have 13,337 pictures on my Memory Manager Program of Photo Organizing! Those are actually sorted by person and by date. I'll keep posting my endeavors.
