I'm doing the kabuki dance!!

Okay, kabookie is probably not spelled right, but I'm doing the dance anyway. (ETA I googled the spelling, it's kabuki)

I'm done with the 2008 family album!!!!

I got the snapload retrofit converter, and am taking apart the book to put that in and arrange the pages. I'll take a photo of that chaos to post on this thread later. But I really had to start this thread because I'm so happy!!!!!!

you know I'm crazy! ROFL

and I confess to ignoring my children at times to do those things. although they're very excited about helping with the garden (I'm hoping we can plant seeds today!) ... if I can only keep Natalie out of the dirt when she's not supposed to be there.

thanks for sharing in my excitement everyone. still haven't taken the book apart yet, but it's on my list for today.

thanks!

here is the process of the rearranging of pages into chronological order, not as messy as I thought it would be

And DH was a HUGE help with installing the snapload converter - he didn't want me taking any pictures of him doing it though. Lol That converter thing is AWESOME, definitely buying more for subsequent albums. The book looks awesome - I need to count the pages in it but I'm sure there's at least 40. And somehow I managed not to scrapbook any photos from May. Very odd because I took a TON of photos in May. DH was gone that whole money (the whole entire month, I think he came back the last day or close to it), so I took a lot of pictures to share with him. Oh, well, I'm not going back just to do a May layout, that would disrupt the flow of my pages.

Wow! Great job, Gwen! I don't think I will ever be that current on my albums...sigh...

I love the LO on top of the center pile in that pic! The one with the 8x10 (or whatever) picture of your daughter on the left, the pink journaling strips in the lower right corner. That looks so cool! Do you have a pic handy that you could post of that? I'd love to see it a little better!

Katie - that is one of my favorite layouts of Natalie. Wink I wanted to capture her long blond hair because Jordan's hair started to change color by 3.5. So I did this layout. Of course, the fact that she's never had a haircut means she'll keep the color a while longer (Jordan had a haircut that took most of her blond curls, but her hair was NEVER as long as Natalie's ...)
