However, I know my problem...
I was too attached to the photos.
I couldn't decide which ones should stay and which ones should go... Cue 80s band :)
There was only one solution. Bring in someone who was not attached to the photos.
When I first told Alan the concept of my 3 options system, he looked at me like I was mad, crazy, off the deep end. He started slowly, however once he realized I wasn't kidding, he was sorting like he meant it! :) He focused on sorting everything into two piles, file and keep.
In the end, it worked. When Alan was done sorting, there was a giant pile of "file" (aka toss).
|Yes, I added the ruler for effect :)|
The next step was for me to organize into the scrapbook pages, deciding what I would scrap, and what would go into the wonderful We R Memory Keepers photo pages. I sorted this all into the album, arranging by approximate date/location.
Each week, I'll post updates to completed layouts on my new Facebook page in the Project Finish the Scrapbook -2011 album.
