    Default is anyone stuck on scrapping a very important event???

    I have been stuck forever on Jasmin's modeling pics. A lot of places do not allow photos so I only have a handfull. Some on set at Kohl's and in back in hair and makeup, some in Chicago and at the hotel that American Girl put us in and some in Middleton at the American Girl headquarters. My question is do I put them all on one page or make it a bigger deal like a 8 by 8 album. I have a bunch of ads and 2 magazines but really don't want to cut those up.
    I am also stuck on Damien's birth page but that might be cause I hate how I look in the photos lol! I am still going to scrap it but I just feel so lost with pages that are a big event??? I am also bad with Christmas and birthdays but when it comes to a funny pic of something small I want to remember then I can scrap it with no problems??? Anyone else like this or stuck on something and if so what are you stuck on?

    yep, I am not an event scrapper. I just don't do it. If I do, its just one pic from the day and I tell all about it in the journaling. I just don't really enjoy scrapping events. That is why I had a hard time finding pics for the party challenge. I am more of a "moments" scrapper.

    Exactly the same with me. I almost NEVER scrap Christmas or holidays for this very reason. That's why I'd rather throw together a mini album and call it done than scrap any event. So I can see why you are stuck on the modeling pics. But I'd start an 8x8 or 8.5x11 album of just modeling layouts. That way you can focus on just one photo that draws your attention, create a layout and not have to try and fit a bunch on one page just because. She'd really appreciate it later in life too, when she has an album of those memories. Just my thoughts. Good luck! I can't wait to see these.

    I scrap events, and say for the summer vacation that we went on, I am doing it's own scrapbook. And in my opinion I would do it's own little book for her modelling. So when she does more you can just add it to the book.

    I scrap every event and when I know an event is coming up I make sure I have my camera in hand and kind of plan some shots I want.. lol.. Like christmas eve and the milk and cookies and the unwrapping of the christmas pjs

    I love the every day moments but I really enjoy the events like birthdays and christmas and easter

    Now see, I will scrap milk and cookies and Christmas pj's layouts, but it will probably be a single page layout with one pic and a title and a lot of journaling instead of the traditional 2 page Christmas layout. I LOVE seeing other people's holiday pages, i just never can do it. I think I get too overwhelmed by all of the pictures and it is too much pressure lol.

    I get overwhelmed in general lol I have a several inches thick pile of photos printed and ready for Maddi's album but it has a whole 4 or 5 pages completed. I thought I might be better with digital stuff but so far not so much! I need to get in and start. Mind you this year I took a whole one photo each of the kids at christmas (yes world's worst mother!) I need to get my camera out and dusted off in a big way!

    I'd make an album of her modelling stuff it'll be a great keepsake for her. If you don't want to cut things up could you scan and reprint them or take a photo of them?

    I have been trying to do my wedding for two years, but never get anywhere with it. I guess it was a bit ambitious for a first ever project.

    Well, first off I am glad it is not just me.

    I will also do the one photo milk and cookie page and I take pics of everything and even plan on the outfits to match my paper when I buy them lol but I also can't get the 2 pager opening gifts page for the life of me. Maybe I will make it a challenge for the crop with a sketch. Thats the thing, if it was someone elses page I could do it in a sec but when it comes to mine forget it.
    We shold list things we are stuck on and then if anyone has a great page on that subject we can all lift it lol. I will post the birthday christmas one's that I like when I get back home. Hope you gals can post some also Even if they are way old, if you like them, post them and maybe we can all get idea's on pages were stuck on.
