Last Friday, my bestie, Sarah, and I went away for the weekend [Friday-Sunday] to a scrapbooking retreat about an hour away. There were about 30 ladies there. I have only been on one other and it was about 6 years ago, so I was very excited [especially have my 2 year scrapbooking hiatus] to get back in the game. After all, I have a baby that is due to arrive in 6 months and I haven't even started Moses' baby album. Did I mention he just turned 2?
I only do a first year album [paper] for my individual kids, and then a once a year album [use to be paper, now it's gonna be digital] for our entire family. That album includes pictures and stories from everyone in our family and all that we did that year. It's just too much work and not enough time for me to make 18 albums for all our current and future children. I mainly use Creative Memories supplies, but also enjoy the occasional stop by Archivers.

I'm a slow scrapbooker, but I got about 22 pages done over the course of 2 full days. I did talk, eat, and sleep a lot too. Did I mention I had to choose, print, and organize over 450+ photos in date order first?
I'd say it wasn't uncommon for women in that retreat to get between 50-100 pages done.
Moses' album will end up about 80 pages, here are the first 22.
