Getting ready to scrapbook

 For me, the hardest part of scrapbooking is getting ready to scrapbook.  When I was on the retreat the other women their were all sharing how we organize or pictures, supplies and even our scrapbooks.  Here's how I do it.

I keep my calendar from each year and I go through the calendar and make a list of all the important things that happened in our family in that year.  Remember, my goal of the scrapbook is to tell the story of my family for that year.  After I have the list of important events I then start looking for the pictures.  Sometimes this is me calling friends or family members and asking for a copy of a picture.  Once I have the pictures I organize them with the calendar and add any memorabilia to it.
