Alright... so when I was only semi into scrapbooking, I bought a lady bug scrapbook and a pink toile looking book (ladybug for Carrie's baby book and the toil for a family album)... well I'm pretty committed to using the toile one for the family book (even though I only have one page done for it) and I have WAY WAY WAY too many pages to go into just one album for Carrie's baby book. I can't find anymore of the ladybug ones, and I haven't found anything I like for Kate's first book. I was thinking about trying to find a cute ish one for that and maybe doing all solid albums (in like red for Carrie and a color that coordinates with whatever I find for Kate, but I can't seem to find red plain books)... so right now I have a bunch of finished pages just laying around...

What do you use. Do you have enough albums for all your pages?? Do you have a theme for your books?? Where do you get your books??

(I've gotten mine so far at Hobby Lobby and WalMart)

I have a bunch of snap lock books that I really like. Some are black, some are red and some are blue. I have one book that is baby for Xavier's baby book. I have a couple D ring books and a couple of the post bound books (I really don't like these though). Most of the books are empty and the pages are sitting on my table. I need to get a lot of page protectors for all my finished pages!

I don't even have close to enough albums for my pages! Caden's ended up being 2 HUGE albums that don't even close all the way so I'm going to have to probably put them into a 3rd album. I got some really nice Making Memory D ring albums that are a simple black online and I think I'm going to get more of them - I haven't used them yet but I think they are going to work best for what I do - I just make too many pages!

I have a pink baby themed post bound one for DD's pre-birth to 1 year and then a hot pink post bound album for her 1 year to hopefully 5 years. Both of those still have empty pages in them. I have a navy blue strap hinge album for DH and my wedding and a purple personalized strap hinge album for my dance studio. I have extra pages for those in my cupboard. I also have a random post bound album (my brother had got me a scrapbook kit from Walmart for Christmas last year) that I use for temporary storage or miscellaneous pages. I am looking for a blue baby themed post bound album for this baby right now. I have gotten mine from Walmart, Hobby Lobby, and Creative Memories. Joann's has a bunch on sale right now, but I can't get their site to work right and I live no where near a Joann's so can't just go to look at them.

I've got I think 5 12x12 post bound albums (I think that's what they are called.) I've got them pretty much filled up, but I'm working on putting them in chronological order (they aren't right now. )

Thank you to the wonderful ladies who mad the blinkies!

"The Lord compensates the faithful for every loss. That which is taken away from those who love the Lord will be added unto them in His own way. While it may not come at the time we desire, the faithful will know that every tear today will eventually be returned a hundredfold with tears of rejoicing and gratitude..... These experiences, while often difficult to bear at the time, are percisely the kinds of experiences that stretch our understanding, build our character and increase our compassion for others."

I don't have enough and I don't really do a theme. Mine are plain and no designs on them.

I used to buy the post bound ones but I have switched over to 3 ring as they are so much easier.
