Still Working on 2008 Layouts

I did a few more layouts for 2008. I'm desperately trying to finish so I can get my book made.

After finding out that I couldn't slurp my Blogger blog through Blurb anymore, I started the tedious task of cutting and pasting my blog entries into a StoryBook. I'm not going to be able to fit an entire year into one book, so I've decided to just get in what I can and then start another book where I left off.

I also decided, after much hand wringing, that I'm going to combine my digital layouts with my blog entries. So much of what's on my blog belongs in my digital family album, so it seemed silly to me to keep them separate.

Plus, the bonus for me is that I don't have to digitally scrap every picture. What a relief that is. It makes the whole project seem that much more manageable.

My book is chronological so I might have two layouts on facing pages, and then six pages or so of blog posts before I have another layout. I'm just copying and pasting the blog posts and putting them on a plain white background to set them apart (and make things quick and easy).

I'll be sure to share it with you when I get the finished product in my hot little hands.


  1. I can't wait to see what it looks like. Is the book reasonably priced?

  2. It looks great!! I am glad you find a way to blog along with this project:-)

  3. As organized as you are, I'm sure it will be done in no time. It sounds like a great plan, neighbor!!


  4. That is the coolest playset! I wish I had one for my kids. Also, I love to scrapbook! I wish I could find the time for it now that I have a baby boy!

    Check out my blog today. I'm doing a giveaway for my 100 post!

  5. Love your layouts! I read through your blog EVERY day :) Love it.

    Thanks for the comment on my blog. :) It's great to be back!!

  6. Sounds like you have a good plan! Can't wait to see your finished project. :-)
