    Default Scrapbook for my Grandma

    My aunt decided that as a family, we were going to make a scrapbook for grandma's 80th birthday. We each have a family page- with a picture of our whole family, and then a page for memories. Those of us with children can give each of our kids a memory page too. So I have 5 pages to make for my direct family, plus 2 for my mom.

    I'd normally be psyched about something like this- but they are using a 3 ring binder and binder sheets to hold the pages. The paper has to be 8 1/4 by 11. That's just not a size I'm used to using. Also, I've got 28 years of time with grandma (and my husband almost 7) and we're supposed to push that into one page?!?!?! I'm going to have to resort to journelling and as I've only made one scrapbook in my life and it was an engagement book for my brother.... journelling has never been a part of my creation process.

    I'm going to have to do a lot of thinking on this. This will be my project next week while I'm at my parent's house.

    I wish I could see how the rest of the extended family is doing their pages. Ah well... if my family (my mom and dad, the 5 of us, and my bro, SIL, and unborn baby) sticks out, at least we'll all stick out together.

    Wow! That sounds like an amazing gift! I'm sure your pages will be great! I agree that the size might be difficult to get used to but I'm sure you will come up with something great. KUP on the progress!

    Good luck figuring out what to do. It would be tough to do one page to qualify all of that time.

    That is one of the best gift ideas I've ever heard! You'll have to post pics when it's all done. I'm sure that whatever you come up with will be cherished. Just have fun!
