scrapbook suggestion needed!

Hiya!

I started scrapping a few years ago on and off, when I realized that i had boxes and boxes of pictures of my son - he's now 21 and i've scrapped about 1-2 years of his life.

I have the best intentions, I have boxes and boxes of pictures, embellishments, you name it, I got it I've spent alot of money on scrapping supplies.

I have a 9yo girl too, haven't even started her life yet.

I'm so behind and just can't get motivated to sit and cut, etc...

So someone mentioned to me that I should be digitally doing scrapping..

I need suggestions of websites, how do you print the pages out, photo paper in your printer, shutterfly, different companies that will print for me at minimal costs...

Well, what do you suggest?

If it were me, I'd do a paper album to start, since you got all the stuff. Title page and 1 each 2 page spread per year.

Then you can do one of the following
  1. call the project done, or
  2. use those pages as chapter pages for more divided page protectors full of photos, or
  3. more actual scrapped pages.

This is what I did for my girls. I continued their baby books after their first birthdays and made a 2 page layout for each year up through age 13 and then called it done.

I also am making a school album for each of them K-12; 4-6 pages for each year except Senior year which gets many more pages. In fact I'm working on my older daughter's Senior year right now and it may need it's own album
