Imagine holding one twenty-page scrapbook in your hands. Imagine that the scrapbook contained highlights from your life. 

Could you create a scrapbook of your life in only twenty pages?

I recently embarked on the challenge of scrapbooking someone's life into one album...and I did it in less than 24 hours. One weekend. No children to attend to. It can be done.

Here are some of the highlights from that twenty-page scrapbook:

  1. These pages are great - coordinated products really help a process like this don't they? I'll be watching the "other side" with interest!

  2. Great pages, Danielle! I love the concept, too!!

  3. Wow, that's quite a project to take on, even with coordinated products. Nicely done.

  4. I am working on a very similar project:

    24 pages to tell the story of my 4 years (so far) in the States, to send it back home to Dad.

    It is very interesting when you work in this sort of limited chunks. It makes the work a bit more doable, and makes you focus on the highlights. I'll se how it comes along, and if the process is something I want to repeat.
