From June until December of 2010, football was our life. Our oldest son decided that this was the year he would tryout and stick with it. I was THRILLED! We are a football family and now I could really be a football mom! When the season came to a close and I had time to remove myself for a while, I decided it was time to go through the pictures. How many do you think I took during my boy’s first ever football season. Almost 3000! How in the world was I going to tackle this to get them scrapbooked? One step at a time.
I first decided to go through the photos and get rid of the obvious pics that were blurry, too far away or just not good. That only eliminated 400. Oookay. Now I needed to be very selective and pick ones that I knew I would use. It was tough and it took me an entire naptime to decide on 389 of my favorites. Still a lot but there would also be another round of cuts when it came down to the editing process.
Having been using Becky Higgins’ Project Life for our everyday photos, I thought maybe this was the way to go for football too. I could use the 2 page designs and make life really easy on myself. I am still holding on to my goal of having the 2010 season done before conditioning camp starts at the end of June.
It was decided! In Photoshop Elements I tagged the events and games to keep them organized. Then, by category, I edited and cropped to fit the pages.
Always trying to use what I have before I go spend money…I went thru my scraps and look what i found!
and so far, here is what my first few pages look like.
I’m so excited to be getting this done in a fun and easy format!
