Scrapbooking Update

After much delay and procrastination, I have actually finished my albums from January 1998 to September 2007!  Feeling proud right now to finally have that part of the task complete and my albums are looking very organized right now.  (see above)

Just as a little reminder, I had skipped portions from almost every scrapbook album I had created in order to "keep up", which didn't happen either.  So I had to back track through every album to finish those skipped pages.  Some of the albums had over half the pages incomplete but luckily, the last few were only short a few pages.  In fact, the last one I did, my chocolate 2007 album, there were only four skipped pages and I really have no idea why I just didn't finish them at the time.  Now they all have page protecters and everything!

Summary:
9  - 45 page albums for me complete
7 - 45 page albums for my son PLUS his high school album current to Fall 2014
6 - 45 page albums for my daughter PLUS her high school album ready to add Fall 2014

Since it's Pi day (3-14-15) that makes 990 double sided pages completed!!
