Scrapbook pages, oh yes.

I've been caught up on my photos twice in my life. Let me tell you, it's pretty boring. You wind up taking random pictures of things just to have photos to work with. Or you ask for other people to give you photos to have something to do. I'm no longer at risk of being in that predicament, though. I'm probably going to be behind for the next 20 years at least. That's okay.

2010 is virtually untouched, and it actually is a pretty sparse year for photos. You can predict our happiness level from the number of pictures we take...and 2010 we were languishing in the adoption process. I do, however, have some very nice trip photos from 2 trips that year I'd like to get done & into albums. Having done a hatchet job on our Washington trip album, in the name of Having It Done, I think I will take my time.

So, I am using the same method I've used twice before, which is stay current and slowly work on the old photos. That being said, I've gone through the events of Alexandra's first life & found several gaps, so those photos are now printed up & I am going to work on those, too.

I've also decided that instead of doing Project 365/Project Life, which I did for her first year, I'm going to do a 12 of 12 album, using 2 12x12's per month and these month stickers I've been hoarding for-freaking-ever. See? I even get to use the pretty stuff ... or at least the stuff I Had To Have, about 10 years ago.

Without further ado, here are 2 pages celebrating Alexandra's birthday:
