Alright I'm new and full of questions. I'm just about done with the scrapbook of Adam's first year but I'm stuck on how to end it. I've seen the "One Was So Much Fun" collage page but I'm looking for other ideas that might be out there. While we're at it, any ideas for the first page in his second year scrapbook? TIA.

I am working on a first year scrapbook (although DS is only 9 months!) But I think I am going to end it with a "then and now" page. I am going to take pics of a newborn diaper/size 3 diaper, newborn sleeper/12mo sleeper, newborn onsie/12mo onsie, etc. My kid was a preemie, so there will be a huge difference!
I always just ended first year scrapbooks w/ the first birthday LO. I never really made a story line w/ my scrap books, just date everything. After year two I start scraping out of order and just make sure everything has a date so I know how old they were then.
I was planning on ending with his first birthday LO's too. I think that would be fitting.

I also planned on ending with the bday lo. but let me think about it.
maybe the 1st page of yr 2 -- could just be a page with no pics --- don't cringe and don't shoot me just do a page that has a big # 2 on it and do some journaling inside the number 2. Like I said, don't shoot me, I know that wouldn't be easy to do.
but I dare you!!!
For the last page of my first two, I did a list of my favorite memories of them, printed it on a sheet of paper and surrounded that by pictures of them. If I find the photos of those pages (not now, we're eating lunch), I will post them. For Natalie, I ordered a 12x12 picture of her eating her birthday cake with the definition of birthday running across the top (done at scrapbookpictures.com - it came out GREAT!)

Lots of good ideas. I have been trying to figure out the same thing. I am doing a yearly scrapbook and I am giving to my DH (he hasn't seen any pages) on New Year's Eve. I don't know what I am going to do....
