Who knew scrapbooking could be so quick and easy and yet still tell the tale of an entire year in someone's (a family's) life? I sure didn't, but this idea book showed me the light! I love the month-by-month format. Typically in any given month we have some big event to scrapbook, but then we also have some "little" things we'd like to remember. This book gives you an "anytime" option, so you can scrapbook one additional page each month about anything that is important to you! Just two layouts a month - even I have time for that :)
Perhaps my most favorite part of this book... the bonus checklists for each month and the recommended photos to take - the really important stuff! The less I have to remember in my head, the better. This is a stellar book for those with a backlog of years of scrapbooking to do... you can really catch up quickly!
The ideas in the book are helpful and fun - I am looking forward to incorporating some of them in my books for 2009 and 2010 to help me feel more "caught up" quickly.
