When it comes to photos, which ones do you personally work with first?


Which ones do YOU work on first?
Oldest pics first/Current pics last (oldest - newest)
Current pics first/Oldest pics last (newest - oldest)
Neither one...I'm basically all over the place (random)
You may choose one option.

In general, I know and have heard, that it's 'suppose to be' easier to go from current pics to older pics...Current being more current & easiest to remember...

I originally started off working with the oldest pics first, but have only put a small dent into those pics.

As of now, I am trying my best to work with and stay current & if nothing else, my goal is to be caught up for this year alone!

I used to scrap each page as it would appear in my album, so I couldn't scrap a newer pic without scrapping the older one first. Now, I just scrap whatever I am in the mood to scrap. Then I put the album together and in order at the end of the year.

I'm pretty random! I sorted all my pics and have them in big storage bins (you know, the really big rubbermaid ones that you can store in the garage or attic). Then I just pick a pack of pics that interest me at the time.
I do scrap the whole event from that group before I move on to another pack. For example, I have 1 more LO to do for our 1993 trip to Hawaii, all the other LOs for that trip are finished.

I'm all over the place too. I have huge stacks of old photos. I go thru old and new and see what jumps out at me, then scrap it.

I'm all over the place too, but I do keep to one project or album at a time. I couldn't juggle several albums at once.

I usually try to stay *somewhat* caught up on the current year, but I will go back and work on some older stuff too sometimes.

I try to do the ones of my dd in order, which I'm about 8 months behind on. If we take a trip, I usually do those as soon as possible. Right now I'm collecting stuff for our Disneyland album and the trip was in June. I've completed the ones for my dd and niece. Once it's done, I will go back to work on the others. I did finally do our wedding album 22 years later and a Story of Us album. One of these days maybe I will try to get my childhood pictures done.

Not enough time in the day.

That's a hard question. When I did my BOM, my ds's album, and my dd's album I scrapped from oldest to newest (birth to hs graduation). Lately I have been doing some heritage lo's and a few of my three grandsons and have done them at random. I have decided to make each grandson their own album and will be sorting the rest of their photos and doing them oldest to newest. I'm sure I will get tired of doing boy lo's and will have to throw in a couple of misc. lo's. I voted for oldest to newest since that makes my OCD happy!

I'm pretty random too although I want to go back and scrap older pictures but every time I get new pictures developed, I'd rather scrap them but I do make myself go back ... I'm a bit of both!

I am making an effort to scrap more of my older pictures now. There is so much going on, and I am constantly taking new pictures that if I don't stop and do the older ones, they may never get done.

Oldest Pictures first to Newest Pictures, in order, and how they appear in the album. I start one album completely finish and then move onto the next. I'm so anal about this.

I am definitely all over the place. Usually recent photos but I do skip around a lot and do some childhood ones and ones from when my kids were babies but I have no real order!

Kind of like my scrap desk - no order at all!!

OH my...I'm so random...depends on the pic!! Have no sense of organization at all!! hehehe!! I jump around to whatever suits my fancy...I've done only one album on one subject...it turned out to be 100 pages!! Maybe that's why...I'm also addicted to doing challenges...so that usually takes up my scrap time...different themes, different twists equal NO ORGANIZATION!! hehehe!! Trying to do my DGS's baby album...have about four to five LO's done...he'll be a year in Oct. so I need to get myself in gear on that!!

I scrap all photos I keep so they tell a story and everything is in chronological order. I have about 4 years that I need to go back and do but since that part of my life is no longer a part of my life, I am not eager to scrap them. For now, I will complete the recent stuff and then go back and do the past. I have scrapped from my birth to 2004 and am working on my wedding in March of this year now.

I generally try to do older pics first, but I often end up jumping around somewhat.

I scrap whatever inspires me first. I always stay current but no longer feel the need to scrap every event or every picture. If I'm going through old pictures and something from 5 years ago inspires something, I scrap it (or scrap it again).

Whatever inspires me at the moment. Could be a photo I took today or years ago.

I used to do oldest to newest but I have gotten so far behind with 3 children that I scrap all over, whatever inspires me at the moment.

I'm random too....when I develop the pictures i seperate the ones I really want to scrap. When I'm ready to scrap, I go through them and see which one inspires me at that moment.

I am completely random...I only print the pictures I want to scrap and then I just go thru them and see what inspires me. I don't think I will ever be caught up...I take LOTS of pictures LOL

I put all of my new pictures on CD. I don't print any, UNLESS I am ready to scrap them. This forces me to work on the old pictures. I am currently playing catchup with my sons' albums. They are now 11 and 9!! I am also continuing to work on my daughters' albums, they are 18m and 4y. Some of the older pics are depressing because people have passed on or moved out of lives, so it is harder and not as much fun as the new stuff. If I am going to a crop, I will print new pictures ahead of time, just so I don't get moody at the crop!!!

Me too, the new ones I scrap first and in between those shots I scrap older ones. I actually enjoy scrapping the newer ones more because I can remember the story behind each one. I have to think to much with the older photos.

I'm pretty current. I usually try to scrap in order but I'm getting behind again so usually what inspires me most at the moment.
