Project Picture Update

I have been a Creative Memories Consultant for 19 and a half years! 

For the past 19 years, every year, one of my New Year's resolutions has been to get caught up on ALL my albums/scrapbooks.

I think I have done a pretty good job during the last 19 years having completed over 120 scrapbooks/digital books but I am not completely caught up.

Once again, this year, I have set the same goal.

I am going to approach it a little different this year though.  I have made a list of all the albums/years that need to be completed and I am going to share that list with you. 

I am expecting you to hold me accountable and I plan on reporting in to you on a regular basis how I am doing.  As you can see from the photo in the previous post my Project Picture has taken over my dining room - no dinner parties for us for a while!!

So here is a list of the projects I need to finish in order to be caught up.

I have divided them up into Traditional, Picfolio or Digital Projects.

Traditional Projects

2005-2009 - college years, post mission (I have given up on the fact that any of my children are going to take over their own albums!)
1984 (yes I have never done his photos from the first year of his life, don't ask me why, I don't know!)

2007 - 2009 - college years, post mission

Freshman year college
1989 (her first year isn't done either, I must have a problem with those first year photos!)


Heritage Photos

Picfolio Projects

Digital Projects

China YA Trip
Australia YA Trip

Cambridge Summer

OK - so that should keep me busy for awhile.

I am starting at the top and getting Logan's album caught up first.  I will do the scrapbook part and he will have to do the journaling though!

I am using the technique I shared here to help me work quick and fast.  I have also committed to working  at least 15-30 minutes a day on my current project - so thus the mess in the dining room!!

So what's your New Year's scrapbooking goal?  I'd love to hear.  Just leave a comment and let me know.


  1. Hi Leigh Anne, happy Monday! I enjoy reading your scrapbook blog. It keeps me motivated. I'm on a mission to scrap 2008 and 2009 for my 3 kids this year. Just had some 2008 pictures printed off and it was around 425 photos. I hope that I'm reading that wrong on the photo lable. Yikes! You keep me motivated to scrap. :-)

  2. So glad you enjoy the blog and good luck with those photos. I am getting ready to print off my 2009 photos to put into a picfolio at a big upcoming Scrapbook event we are having and I am scared to death how many photos that will be - I'll keep you posted!
