Sometimes scrapbooking about ourselves is really difficult. As the family photographers we usually don't have as many photos of us as we do the rest of our family, and the second problem is knowing what to say. Whether you had the camera over to your kids or husband every once in a while, or you take a few self portraits, you definitely need to get some photos of yourself. Your children will really treasure them. Also, they really do love learning more about you.
Quizzes are a great way to get some journaling down on the page. In this page by Stacey Sattler, she simply answered the questions on her page, added a photo, and ended up with a page her family is sure to treasure.
