So I picked up scrapbooking a few months ago and while I enjoy it, I don't have anything to scrapbook really! I did our wedding pictures...and I have a few vacations to do (which will be a page or two each)...but other than that...what do those without kids scrapbook? I can't WAIT to have kids, I'll never run out of ideas!

Here are a few things I can think of.

Do some pages of your city (important buildings or nice parks)
The first snowfall
Do you have any nieces or nephews?

Family would definitely be one that I would do. We have a festival of lights every year around Christmas that I like to scrapbook and other holidays and events.

Hi, Christine! I'm another without kids here. I've scrapped my wedding pics, and am currently working on vacation pics (Greece 06 & 08). I also scrap a lot of pages with my nieces/nephews & other family members. I've also started an Anniversary one of DH & I that I plan on adding a page to each year. Holidays, my kitty, and am thinking of going back and scrapping old pics of growing up, grandparents, etc. So there is a lot to scrap even without having kids yet. Yes, I am so looking forward to making a pg album and once we finally have kids that'll be so much fun to scrap!

I would scrap whatever memories you have now that you want to remember. Even the simple ones.

Like I loved going out to the movies with the hubby before kids. A simple everyday thing that you wouldn't think to take a camera and capture, but I wish we had. Also we went out to a lot of those New Years parties..... Friends, one thing I don't scrap enough of are my friends. And of course me, like what are my favorite things in my life now.

I did a lot of pages of various things we did while dating. My mom always took pics when Rich came over, Rich was also an avide photographer back then.

I also plan on doing separate albums for each of us growing up

I did a whole album of our first home! Us standing by the "SOLD" sign, at the closing with the lawyer, moving in, painting and decorating, renovations, and our favorite spots around the house! It turned out really cute and I am SO glad I have it! You can also scrap any traditions that you and your hubby have together...we have pages of us picking out a Christmas tree and decorating it, carving pumpkins, baking and decorating cookies at Christmas, walking with our dogs, even doing simple household chores! We are expecting our first baby in Feb. and the other day my hubby made a joke about how the laundry is so piled up that is has actually become FUNNY!! So....I went and took pictures of the GIGANTIC pile of laundry and then us trying to wash and fold it all...haha! Anything I want to remember 50 years from now!
