Challenge #100 at Journaling Junkie

Over at Journaling Junkie, in honor of Challenge #100 the journaling prompt is to create a layout about a celebration! Now this one is right up my alley. I have an entire album dedicated to Celebrations. Here's a peek inside.
Those of you using the Library of Memories system will recognize the organization of this album, which includes a title page, dedication page and section pages
My mother in-law's 75th birthday. I love the photo of her, Phil and his brother. (Phil is the one not wearing the bow tie)
Our son and his lovely bride at their wedding reception. A magical evening for us all.
The 50th wedding anniversary of my parents. With the Library of Memories system, it was so easy to lay hands on photos that span the years.
We had a family get together before my nephew headed out to Iraq. I'm happy to report that he is now safely back home.
The most recent high school graduation open house, this time for my nephew. We have celebrated 7 of these and only have 3 more to go!

This is the album I like to take to the latest family gathering. There are layouts from Thanksgiving, Christmas, beach vacations - really anytime we all get together. How do you celebrate extended family in your scrapbook pages?

  1. Wow, I'm sure that album gets looked at a lot! I'd never really thought before about making an entire "happy" album like this - all my pages are mixed in together. But this is fabulous!

  9. Awesome album, Sue! I have a celebrations album too and it's the only one that I keep the sections in chrono order. I also have Extended Family tabs for both sides of the family in my People albums where put layouts devoted to cousins and family, and a Grandparents tab for pages of my parents with my nephews and the few pages that's I've done of my own grandparents. I haven't done a celebrations layout in a long time. May need to add one to my list! :)

  12. Enjoyed this look into your Celebrations album. My album is titled Days We Celebrate and has sections for each holiday plus anniversaries and birthdays (I don't have section pages created yet but may do that during this year's LOM/Photo Freedom workshop).

  14. Sue- This is great! I guess we will find out (SIL and family moving in with us on Fri when her husband goes to Iraq). We are a true nuclear family, as we live in WA and all of our family is on the East Coast. Usually extended family is seen during a vacation, and so that is where they are tucked.
