Have you used THESE ?
12 x 12 photo page protectors...I bought some from Papermaze for my "Alternative " Scrapbook.
This album marks the point at which we bought a digital camera...that is to say I stopped getting all my photos printed as they were on the computer.
Not liking this very much I decided to print my favourite 5 photos from each month, leaving one space to decorate with journaling and pretty paper.
I have completed 2006 and am working on 2007....so not too far behind!!!
Some months did spread on to 2 pages as it was hard to pick only 5 photos, but it is such a nice project to pick up and work on when I don't have time for a full layout.
The trouble is, things will be much harder as I catch up because we take soooo many more photos now than we did back in 2006!
