Older pics
Nicole's Show Me has been wondering - how many of you have gone back and scrapped pics of yourself as a child? I'm pretty sure most of you have, I know Janessa did albums of her & her brother. Brittanie has been scrapping since she was a child. And I'm sure Nicole has quite a few too. :lol:

I don't have many pics at all as a child as my Mom didn't have the dexterity in her hands/fingers to use a camera plus we didn't have money for film, developing, etc. There are a few school pics and some snapshots here and there though that would be great to get scrapped. Not sure how to get started.

Any tips about it?

Did you do a lot of journaling on these pages?

My parents were ok off financially and there are a ton of boys in my family so my mom had tons of professional pictures done of me. Most of them are not scrapped.

As for journaling I don't have much more to say about old pictures.

Re: Older pics
Well, I started scrapping at 13, so......yeah.

I did do several of my baby pictures and young childhood as a gift for my mom for her own scrapbook (with the understanding I'd get to keep them after she dies...lol)

My mom did mine birth-grade 12. I started scrapping in high schhool.

I think for journaling old photos Id put the info I knew, name, age and date. If its a picture of people doing something I would include others names and what was going on

Re: Older pics
I haven't scrapped any of my childhood pictures....my mom did. :)

I agree with Robin - probably just journal about basic, what you know about the picture type stuff.

Re: Older pics
I've only scrapped a few. I made an album for my parents. I should take pictures of it when I'm back home at the end of the month. I'm sure it's horrible as It was the first one I ever did and it's pretty much just stickers and photo's. One of the things I'll be doing at my parents is going through all the old pictures and sorting them by year and taking notes about them. then I need to hire someone to scan them in because that will be a major job.

Re: Older pics
Thanks ladies! Once I get through our visitors, I'm going to go thru some old photo albums I have and scan in a few pics to get started on. I know I have more pics from highschool time, and very few from before. When I go see my Mom next, I can see what she has handy. I think it'll be fun to do.
