All scrapbookers are a little quirky, right? Right??
I have a strict policy for my scrapping- any single event or trip gets ONE spread in the scrapbook. It doesn't matter how long the trip was or how many hundreds of photos I took. ONE layout.
A lot of my fellow scrapbookers think I'm crazy.
I do actually have a reason for my strict limit on pages per event- fear of running out of storage space. I've been scrapping for a long, long time. I already have several dozen scrapbooks on the shelves. If each trip or special event had its own album, we would quickly be buried in albums.
During our 10-day Alaska cruise, Steve and I took about 600 photos that were keepers Obviously, I had plenty of pictures to fill a whole scrapbook (or two). It was very difficult to pick which photos to print. Eventually, I narrowed it down to about 40, which I printed mostly as 2x3's. I ended up using 33 of them on this layout:
This layout shows all the highlights of our trip at a glance. Each of the family members who traveled with us is in at least one photo. I included photos from each of our shore excursions and from the geocaching we did. The animals we saw (like the baby bear trying unsuccessfully to catch a fish) are there, as are the most beautiful of the vistas. There are pictures in the pool, the buffet, and our stateroom. In 33 pictures, I captured ten day's worth of memories.
What about the other 500+ good photos? They aren't going to be scrapbooked. We have an online gallery for our family, and I uploaded all the good photos there. I put in detailed captions, so that if we ever want to do more reminiscing than the scrapbook page can provide, we'll go there.
