{Scrapbooking} Digital and Done 2014 & 2015

I haven't done an updated digital scrapbook post since 2014 and I recently finished up our 2015 photo album so I thought it was time to share a little.
I must have finished up 2014 awhile ago.   I like adding a photo of all four of us to the cover page.
  I use Shutterfly for the albums and I've been happy with the quality.
 I try and do them in chronological order and fit as many photos as possible. I still leave out a lot of photos but I try to get the best ones.
 It's fun looking back...8th grade?!
 Trips are fun to document and remember.
 And holidays...
 Our trip to Paris to visit College Girl over Christmas...
 more Paris...
and London!
 2015 was a big year for us: 4 milestone birthdays (16, 21 and two 50's!)
There was a lot of partying!

 We went to Aruba and...
 the beach.

 Visited NYC...
 and celebrated Halloween.
 Did some photo shoots.
 Celebrated the holidays and...
 ended with the back cover (with a photo).
Each time I make an album, I learn something new. I finally figured out I could add a year to the spine of the album.  I'm going to try and be better about exporting my favorite photos to Shutterfly over the year and make a few pages at a time so it's not such a big job at one time.  Then when they're having a sale (like free extra pages) I'll be ready!

*edit* Shutterfly just extended their FREE UNLIMITED PAGES sale until Wednesday. This is an awesome deal if you have a lot of photos like I do!   I might just finish 2017 yet!

OMG! This is a huge project and it looks amazing. I was just going to ask what company you used. Shutterfly. How many pages did you use for that year? I have ALL my images dating back to digital files organized in my Dropbox. What a great way to capture the year in one place! Need to reread! Thanks Heather! laura

Oh my goodness, these are great and would save me a lot of time. I do books from CVS for our family vacation every year but a years worth of memories in one book is such a good idea!

Looks like beautiful album, sweet memories and such a wonderful life my friend! You cram so much fun into a year!

Beautiful Heather!! I love that we can make albums like this. I have many Creative Memory books too. That was fun to do as well. I have a couple of those to finish. I love using the stickers and other embellishments, but it does take a lot of time to create.

Such a wonderful keepsake of family memories! I have created a few scrapbooks myself on Shutterfly so I know how time consuming it can be.

Boy, do I admire you!! SO much work! I started off well, when my son was younger, and we have a lot of scrapbooks to show for it. But I guess I ran out of steam somewhere. Good for you for getting this done!

Saw you on Claire's linkup.

Those are fantastic. That's the thing about photos these days, we put them on the computer and that's where they stay. Getting them into a book to be enjoyed is the best idea.
