My current project

I am currently working on a project for my mom for Mother's Day. I have all of our family photos and I am putting them into a scrapbook for her. I carefully removed all of the photos from those yucky adhesive albums. Luckily all of the photos are in pretty good shape (Even the polariods). It feels weird to me to now scrapbook my own baby pictures. But I love the fact that now these pictures are going to be safe.

One problem I am having is with pictures of my brother. My brother is 6 years younger than me and there are hardly any pictures of him when he was a baby. I am actually having to leave pictures of me out so I can make sure the book is somewhat balanced. I don't know what to do because I really don't want to offend him. I think that his lack of photos may hurt his feelings. I think I may try to get a lot a recent photos of him and see I can bulk up his section that way.

Other than that the album looks great. I am really hoping that my mom will like it.

I have started scrapping some childhood pictures of myself as well and it is kind of fun. At times I wonder what I or my mom was thinking. Fortunately I have a lot of pics to choose from, my younger sister is that lucky either.

Oh your blog and YOU are adorable!!!

You know.. most "guys" tend not to notice the little details like girls do... I think putting more current photos of him in there wouldn't break his heart.. and could balance them out... maybe chat with him about it..?? My hubby is the baby of his family.. and it doesn't bother him that there isn't many pictures... but there sure are TONS of memories that they share.. and some of them QUITE funny!!!
I hope you share them after!!
