Do you have a favorite scrapbook that you have made? How about your favorite one that you received as a gift? Well, I only have one completed scrapbook, which is one of my Hawaii trips, and I have to say that I am happy with it. I have received a few scrapbooks as gifts and my favorite scrapbook gift was my Chicago trip with 2 other friends.

I don't know if I have one special scrapbook. I have done so many and different ones mean different things for me. I just completed one for my sister (for Christmas) which is one of my favorites at the moment because it's one I had meaning to do for her for years. I can't wait until she opens it. She's not one to show much emotion, so I keep wondering how she will react. It's more of the more personal and condensed scrapbooks I have done.

Did your sister LOVE the scrapbook you made for her? I know that the sentimental scrapbooks are more meaningful...I also know that it is difficult to choose just one favorite

My sister loved the her scrapbook. She sent me a txt to say she loved it and also sent me one of those singing Hallmark cards which plays "You're Unbelievible" when you open it and says "You're to good to me" on the front. So, I would say that she liked it quite a bit and that it really touched her. Thanks for asking.

I actually have many scrapbooks that I've started, but none that I've completed. My favorite that I've been working on is the wedding album for my husband and myself. We are coming up on our seventh wedding anniversary at the end of this month, but I've not gotten our wedding scrapbook done because I tend to spend the majority of my time on working for books for our children. Instead of having a traditional baby book for them, I scrap all of the important events in their lives.

Congratulations on your 7 year anniversary! That's so exciting! I do not have any children myself, but I have learned from other Moms that I know, including my own, that you tend to put your children first in pretty much everything, which is great! My Mom put a lot of my birthday cards and pictures from each year in a photo album and I hope to someday turn it into a scrapbook. But I am still working on my Ireland scrapbook from my trip in 2004. Once I am on a creative streak, I don't like to be interrupted once I've started and that's kind of difficult with 3 jobs. I am so glad that you now have the opportunity to complete something for YOU that was kind of put on the back burner, so to speak.

My favorite scrapbook is the one I made of my youngest two children. I had it mixed up with other pages, but it has fun things like halloween, my daughter's first day of school and her 5th birthday party. I have never received a book as a gift..scrap book that is :)

It's fun to go back and look at and re-live the fun memories of the pictures. Kids grow up so fast, but it's fun to see how they have grown. Sometimes I will look at pictures from when I was younger and hope to someday take the pictures out of the picture books to create a scrapbook. Thanks for your response!

2008 christmas scrapbook - 8x8 altered chipboard album
it's really hard for me to choose just one favorite. i have 3 for each year that me and my s/o have been together, i have two that are of our dog, from when we got her as a puppy. i one for each of our careers, which i will be finishing his soon, he retires after tomorrow. i have one for the scrapbook weekend retreat my daughter and i attended, and i did an 8x8 of christmas 2008, since it was the first time back to texas in 2 years, but i have many pages to do that will go in my personal scrapbook. i'll be working on a chipboard book of my granddaughter, she was born in feb last year and i finally got to see her at christmas. and of course i'll be starting a new one of us for 2009. so although i have many favrite layouts, it's hard to choose my favorite book.

My favourite scrapbook is the one I made about my stay in Estonia. I am very happy that I have made that one, because it was an important time in my life. I have lived abroad a number of times and I always collect material to put in my scrapbooks, but the problem is, I don't always manage the make a scrapbook when I get home. Sometimes I just keep the material and decide to finish it later on. That has happened with many of my trips, but my scrapbook about Estonia has been completed, and I am very happy that I managed to finish it.

I don't create my scrapbooks right away when I get home either. I finally finished my 2001 Hawaii trip scrapbook this past year (7 years later) and have started working on my 2004 Ireland trip scrapbook - my goal is to complete that this year. It is hard for me to find a long window of time to sit down and scrapbook. When I actually do sit down to scrapbook, I don't want to be interrupted because then my creative ideas might be ruined. Congrats on completing your scrapbook! Thanks for responding!

Hey ya Mindym. I do have a scrapbook but it's not completed. I got it as a Christmas gift about 5 years ago from my grandmother. She put old pictures in it from when I was a child and of her and my family at various times of their lives.I had lost contact for several years and that was her way of catching up.lol
