Scrapbooking | 2012 - The First Half

Some of you may remember that I finished up our 2011 chronological albums last year, which led to my focus on 2012 scrapbooking as this year began. Honestly, I already had a lot of layouts completed for 2012 because I did a ton of scrapbooking due to taking online classes, coaching in the Finding Photo Freedom workshop, and being part of our (not-so) local scrapbook store's design team for several years.

So, my goal for our 2012 chronological albums is to organize the layouts I've already created, review the remaining photos and memorabilia I have on hand, and add any stories or memories I haven't yet captured to complete these albums. I've already worked my way through the first half of the year!

Some of the additional layouts simply showcased photos of: 

people we love, 

places we went,

performances we enjoyed,

and sporting events we attended.

A few pages added to previously completed layouts about about our travels:

for a weekend getaway

and an out-of-state trip.

And some layouts were added to record stories about:

how Daddy's broken arm was NOT an April Fool's joke,

the new friends I made at the first unofficial BPC crop I hosted here in Texas,

and what a great time it was,

and the legend that Jesse James died in 1951 (not 1882) and is in fact buried in Granbury, Texas! 

I'm so excited to have this first half of 2012 completed and am already making progress organizing layouts and photos and memorabilia to complete the last half of that year! Do you still have photos and memories from 2012 to scrap?


  1. You are certainly making good creating use of your social distancing time. I don't think there's any photos left unscrapped, I think my hurdles would be sparse journaling.

  2. You've been very productive and it all looks amazing! TBC would love a trip to the Flight Museum!

  3. Last year, I reorganized all our photos, and I'm sure there are a few from 2012 and way past that date. None will be scrapbooked though. When I finished our 2018 album last year, I decided to let go of scrapbooking. I haven't given up the idea of going back to 2019 and making a photo book, but I gave away most of my scrapbooking materials. I do have two boxes with all the photos needed to complete a couple of albums, so I saved enough page protectors to complete those if I decide too. If this seclusion lasts months as they are predicting, I might just get to it! A couple things I love about all your layouts is how colorful they are, and how you almost always have a selfie of you and Robbie!

  4. That's a lot of scrapbooking happening! Is that an actual record on that one layout?


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
