I mentioned in Monday's post that I love sharing stories and memories about the ornaments we've purchased and made. The same holds true, even more so, for the Christmas Scrapbook. Sometimes the memories are bittersweet--looking through last year's pages I saw three family members that are no longer with us. Sometimes it's about showing Schnickelfritz that yes, he was that tiny once but look how he's grown. I even wrote about the time I woke up three weeks before Christmas to a puddle in the living room floor and how the plumber cut 16 holes in the wall looking for the leak (I can almost laugh about it now).
I always try to include one of our family Christmas cards in the spread. Then I fill up the rest with photos of who we see, how the house is decorated, whatever. You don't have to spend a ton of money either--buy scrapbook elements after Christmas when they're 75% off. You may be able to find all the digital scrapbooking freeies you want online (assuming you have a program to manipulate and print them). My album pages are 10 x 10 so I could arrange something and print it on 8x11 photo paper and then journal in the remaining 2 inches or add a ribbon or something.
So don't let those precious pictures sit in a shoebox. Arrange them so you can share them year after year.
