For as long as I can remember, my Aunt Mary Ellen has been an avid scrapbooker. My cousin Andrew has to be one of the most photographed people alive! When my sister and I came to visit in the summer, Mary Ellen got two extra sets of hands to help her with her scrapbooks. At this time, film was the norm, so Mary Ellen would pick up stacks of pictures that had been developed. You then sort out the pictures and decide what pictures will go on what page. I loved looking through all of the colors of paper and imagining the different possibilities for each page.
As much as I loved helping Mary Ellen, I never made a complete scrapbook of my own. Well, this is all about to change. In case you were wondering what 750 pictures looks like:
Mike and I spent 9 weeks in Europe this summer (6 weeks for summer school in Rome, and 3 weeks bumming around other European cities). I managed to narrow down my photo selection to 750 prints. Look for updates as I put these guys onto scrapbook pages. Let the scrapbooking begin!
