Anyone have biographical LO ideas?

Not sure if that question made sense, but I'd like to do some layouts about me and DH for the baby book. One page for DH, one page for me. For example, where we were born, what we like to do, what some of our favorite things are, as well as a baby picture, and one or two other pictures that are more recent. It just seems like a lot of info for one page! For DH's page I got some stickers relating to camping and teaching (and Spiderman!). I've been trying to think of ideas for this type of LO since I decided to do a baby book, but I seem to be stuck, and somewhat overwhelmed with information I want to include.

Has anyone done a LO like this that you'd be willing to share, or does anyone have any ideas on a good way to go about doing this?

Thanks!

Hmmm, I think that I would have a hard time fitting that on one page. For my son's baby book, here is what I did.

I have one page (12x12) with each of our hospital pics and our birth stats and a little journaling about our respective families. On another page I have a layout with three pics, one when we were dating, one from our wedding, one from our honeymoon, with journaling all over the page about how we met and when we were married and all that.

Great idea! I think my original idea was a bit lofty - I like your idea a lot.

I put all that info in his babybook, not his scrapbook. If I could go back, I wouldn't have probably done a baby book and would have just done a more complete scrapbook. But on his baby book I have a page for DH and a page for me. Both have pics and an envelope containing a letter from each of us to him. That was really special to me...writing a letter and sealing it in his babybook. And I included basic info about each of us. Scott (DH) filled out his own page. Maybe you could have your hubby write out his interests, or include him on the design?

Personally, I would do more than just one page of you. It sounds like you have a lot of info and pics in mind, and it would be neat if you made like a 2 pg (or more) spread of just you, and just DH. I like Charys ideas as well!
