What are your goals in scrapping for 2008? Just that I keep up w/ it consistently. Right now, I'm currently off from scrapbooking, but I'm hoping my scrapbooking itch will start very soon. The last page I was working on for Tyler's book was a page of Daddy and Tyler.

Children/ages: Kayson-15 months old

Outside of scrapping, anything major going on in your life right now? No.

What are your regrets in scrapping from 2007? Not catching a few important moments on camera that I could have saved for Kayson's book. And not taking any pics on our anniversary last February. I forget to capture DH and I's life, which will be just as important years from now to Kayson.

What are your goals in scrapping for 2008?
To try and apply new techniques to my scrapping. And I have a really hard time making pages with more than one photo look nice, so I'm trying to learn how to make my pages look less cluttered. And my twin is getting married in June, so I want to make her and her fiance a complete scrapbook of their wedding. That's a big goal for me.

And a recent page from last month: (I went back and scrapped an older photo of when Kayson was in the NICU that I loved)

What are your regrets in scrapping from 2007? None! I discovered digital scrapbooking in 07

What are your goals in scrapping for 2008? To keep up, and to remember to keep my camera handy. The first year was a flurry of picture taking, but I have been getting lazy recently and its so neat to catch those little, everyday moments

Outside of scrapping, anything major going on in your life right now? Well, I'm pregnant with our last baby, which is a big deal.

What are your regrets in scrapping from 2007? Not sure I have any. It was a good year for me, I got a lot done, and I'm not starting 2008 too far behind. :ol:
What are your goals in scrapping for 2008? Finish 2007 by the end of Feb, catch up on all of the professional photo albums and try to be caught up on 2008 before the baby arrives in July.

Children/ages: We are expecting our first baby, Kaylee, on April 30!!!

Outside of scrapping, anything major going on in your life right now? Well, the most major thing is being pregnant and preparing for our baby.

What are your regrets in scrapping from 2007? I wish I hadn't waited so long to start!

What are your goals in scrapping for 2008? I want to work on Kaylee's baby book. Before she gets here, I hope to complete some pages about our family and about the pregnancy, baby showers, etc. And then, once she's here, I hope to keep it up on a regular basis. I'm planning for this book to cover her first year, but I'm thinking I might run out of room.

Show us some of your progess in scrapping... (ie: one of your first pages, vs a recent page): I'm currently still working on my first page. I tend to be a perfectionist, and especially with this being my first page, I'm being so picky about it. As soon as I finish it, I'll post it for you all to see!

Outside of scrapping, anything major going on in your life right now? I work full time, and I am going to graduate school, so I suppose that on top of my kids and my marriage my life is pretty full!! We just bought a house. As soon as we finish all the paperwork then life should settle down quite a bit. Smile

What are your regrets in scrapping from 2007? That I didn't DO any! I managed to keep my photos relatively sorted. They are on three separate computers though so I have to take a lot of time to burn them onto disks so I can sort them onto one machine and have them printed.
What are your goals in scrapping for 2008? To get caught up on my current projects and establish a more regular routine so that I don't fall behind.
