Inspiration Greatly Needed!
Hello, scrapbookers! I don't do scrapbooking all that often...lets just say that the last time I did one was about 5-6 years ago and that was for my parents 40th wedding anniversary. Anyways, this October will be my 20th wedding anniversary with my wonderful hubby. Well, on our 10th Anniversary I had made up a scrapbook of our first years of childhood and how we met and all the way to the present at that time...He loved it and cried when I gave it to him.
It was a special time for us.
For our 10th I did topic/pages/Layouts that were titled:
Boy (page of his childhood)
Girl (Page of my Childhood)
Boy Meets Girl
Boy Dates Girl
His Graduation
What Girl Liked about Boy
Our Wedding Day
Our First Place Together
First Few Christmases
Our 2nd Home
Our 1st Big Vactaion
1st Pregnancy
It's a Girl
It's A Boy
Our 3rd Home with 2 Kids
It's a Girl
People We have know and Loved
Our Home Under Construction
Our Wonderful Families
Our Amazing Children Together
Child #1's Page to Daddy
Child #2's Page to Daddy
Child #3's Page to Daddy
Page of Laughter of silly faces
Through the Years Our Family Has Changed Alot!
10 Years Of Marriage (it was more current pictures of us at that time)

Well, I would like to do another one, celebrating another 10 amazing years together. I just seemed stumpped as to what "kind" of pages to put in this one! I do know that I want another funny faces page and a page made by each kid for their daddy and a current picture page of us and maybe some vactions we have taken as a family and Christmases...but from there...I just can't seem so come up with enough to do a whole book! That is why I have come to this part of the forum. Help me get some inspiration on some "subject pages" That may have happened through that last 10 years....Can you help me? Thanks!

That sounds like a wonderful scrapbook you made!

I'm not very good at coming up with page ideas myself, so I won't be much help, I'm afraid. What about your family's favourite foods, or favourite summer/winter activities?

Let us know how it goes! :)

Maybe doing a search for family titles would spark your creativity? I would think a lot would be repeats of the first 10 years, as far as homes, holiday, children growing up, etc. Maybe focusing on the "journey?"

What a cool idea!

What about things like firsts for your kids like first day at school, first dance, first boyfriend/girlfriend?
Have you done anything special or that could be like a "throwback" such as going to the place that you went to when you dated, a picture with your friends that were in your wedding, etc. So you could do photos of you all then (or when you and he were at that special place in the past) with a photo of you all now.
Do you have any family traditions that weren't in your first book? Family movie nights, him always doing a particular task each season (like hanging the holiday lights, being the first one to taste test holiday meals, etc)
Maybe a page about the habits you've learned to love over the last 10 years
Has there been anything big in the last 10 years like an anniversary at work (15 yrs at the job type thing), big promotions, etc?
Memorial pages for family members who passed away? Like special memories with great grandma, etc.
