So how do you organize your albums and layouts?
Do you keep all your layouts in order by date, or event, etc.
What's your system?

Okay well, mine needs some re-organizing, but this is kinda how I try to keep it organized.

* Family Album by year: Layouts in order of dates (but I really need to get in and re-organize Smile
* Tre (my Son's) albums: he has blue and when it gets full i just go to the next one. I use to try to do it by year, but I would have way too many albums for that Smile
*Aaliyah (my daughter's): same way I do my son's
* Mini albums: our dating years, our anniversary, bigger events where i took lots of pics etc.
* Scrapbook for my mom and mother-in-law (not really in order)
Okay, this is my crazy system, but I am always changing and re-ordering it Smile

My 10x10 album is pretty much in chronological order. One of my 12x12 albums is, too. The other 12x12 album I started using it just for 12x12 layouts of challenges I did. For my two 8x8 albums (one's a cat, one's a dog), I think I started just using whatever pic/s I felt like. But now they're in order.

That's pretty funny right there.

They are organized by whatever page I just finished goes in the next available
spot in the album!

Therefore, when looking at our scrapbooks, you may see a 20-year-old on
one page, and when you flip the page, the same young man has returned to
his 5 year old self. Or the womb.

You just never know.

It keeps things fresh.

fresh....ha! that's funny. i guess no need to go to other albums....they're all there ...sort of. lol good method.

I tend to have several albums going.
each of my 3 kiddos has a school album, then family albums out the wazoo. i plan to give them theirs when they are older , married and off on their own....well in their 30's maybe? for some it's longer....who knows when we mature and value those things. geek

I have albums going for each of my boys, then a separate album that includes pics of all three of them. I have another one of my hubby and I, and then one more for everything else.

I'm kinda like Trish though...nothing's in order inside the albums. In the one, there's a picture of me as a baby next to one of my wedding!
