When scrapbooking did you make a baby book, a family book, or both?

Did you make a baby scrapbook all on its own? Or did you make it a family baby book? Or did you do both? My mother in law made a book for each one of her sons and when they graduated from high school gave it to them. I am not sure if I should make a baby scrapbook, that my daughter can have as her own and than make a family one that we can keep. I might be scrapbooking for the rest of my motherhood life!

  • I have scrapbooks for each child, then I have one for me, which might be considered a "family" book.

  • you know, there is SOOO much digital product out there... creative memories, shutterfly.. the local kodak machines at CVS or grocery stores... if you make ONE digital album , you can get as many copies as you need.. and make one with a "baby" view to it, or a "famiy" view to it.. and they are just like really books... they are awesome!!

  • Scrapbook for each child and several for each grandchild. I love taking tons of pics of them and I love to scrapbook all of them.

  • I'm in the process of 4 books for my children and family albums I can keep to share with the grandkids and their kids, and other family or friends. I am a scrap addict and want to start a group once a month for moms to get together - my best friends is a consultant for a company that has great ideas, supplies, and they have her to share it with all her friends (me) and then I can share with all my friends. Anyone interested in a group - let me know. I have a couple fellow soccer moms looking into it also. thanks

  • I made a baby book for my son Justin (now 17 months). I put a page for each boy with the words Brother on it.

    I am now working on a book for my two older ones... the oldest wont have any sibling page and the middle will only have the oldest on his sibling page....

    BUT I also have family books that are mine for when they move out....
