I have decided that this will be my family album for 2009. This way, instead of being a year behind, I can easily work on it a bit at a time and be done by the end of 2009 (or soon thereafter). Plus, my album will contain lots of little things that define and illustrate us as a family, rather than just the big events. Big events may get their own pages within the album, or a mini album all their own. As for the biggest event of the year (coming in just a few weeks!), she gets her own album anyway. :)
So, everyday I take a picture, and everyweek or so, I print them out, journal about them and put them in the album. I am not doing much extra...an ocassional stamp or sticker, but pretty much using what came with the kit and getting it done. May be the first time in my scrapbooking tenure (12 years worth) that I am "caught up."
Here's my workspace:
And a few completed pages:
