    Sooooo, since I hadn't scrapped in 3 years prior to starting this MoC and I can't guarantee myself what I'll scrap after, I had this thought that I would have these 31 layouts printed into a book, and that I'd make them a little snapshot of our current life. I had to rework a couple of the early ones to fit this theme, but otherwise it's coming along great.

    The challenge will probably be to get my oldest 2 boys (22 and 26) to let me take a picture of them.

    I'm super pumped to have a little album made!! Thanks for the push!

    I am also trying to mostly use MOC to complete a book for my grandson, it is great motivation and inspiration. Your idea sounds fabulous.

    I am using MOC to get pages created for an album I will have printed of a cruise I did way back in 1981 so using scanned photos. So far I have been able to complete 4 pages about my cruise so I am very happy about that.

    @Angie4b1g I hope those sons of yours will co-operate and let you take photos of them.

    I use MOC as a way to get scrapping again....and I vow to get more regular with my scrapping afterwards but it never happens

    I'm glad to see you scrapping again too Angie (LOL love your 'no' siggy). If only your sons appreciated what you were doing - sheesh what is it with family members and the 'no photos' thing?!

    I had one but it was from when I was a Polly so I removed it so as not to be a fraud. Lol

    It's good to see you scrapping again!

    I've printed out my MOC layouts for the last 2 years. One was totally random, but I loved having the "I did it" book! The other was more focused, and mostly trip photos.

    MOC usually gets me scrapping again for 6-9 months....then I fall off the wagon again!

    I should print mine out! That's a great idea about chronicling your life - wish I had thought of that to begin with! Maybe next year!

    I printed my MOC 5 in a freebie 8x8 shutterfly book and then later did MOC 6 in another freebie too. It’s cool to see them, although there is little cohesiveness to them.

    Going into MOC7 I decided I wanted to do as many pages of my daughters Make a Wish trip we took to NYC in November, and if I couldn’t work the trip into some, I would try to keep those ones focused on my one little word Breathe.

    So far NYC3 and Breathe 2
