So I have a bunch of old photo albums from my childhood...you know the ones the ones that have a lift of clear plastic and all the photos sit on a sticky background??
I am planning on going through all of them and scanning them and printing copies and scrapping a "book of me" for my son....I would like to do some pages about my childhood (one idea I was thinking of was doing a page about the technology we had...the tv that you had to get up and change the channel, records and tapes, typewriters etc..)
I also have a whole bunch of really old photos from my mother....photos of my grandparents and my mom growing up from the early 1900s to the 1950s. I am planning on doing a heritage album for my son of all his great-grandparents, grandparents, family tree type thing....
If you are doing pics from the 1970s for instance, do you try and use papers, embellishments that match the time period or not worry about it?
What sort of topics would you cover on a book of me? Page ideas?
How have you tackled heritage albums? Do you do a family tree in the album? What type of journalling do you do, if any? (don't have many stories about my grandparents)
Do you coordinate the whole book with papers etc., make it cohesive? Or do it like any other album?
Any advice on scanning old photos?
Feel free to add any advice you think is pertinent and give examples, if you have done pages like this!
