I'm getting married in October to my long-time boyfriend (*squee!*) and one of goals over the next year or so is to make a scrapbook showing our family tree (combining both his family and my family).

I could use some ideas/inspiration on how to organize it though. 

I'm not sure how to put it in a logical order?  Like, should I do (for instance) the whole first half of the book my side of the family, then the second half of the book his family?  OR should I do my parents, then his parents, then my maternal grandparents, then his maternal grandparents, etc (alternating sides)? 

For those of you who've done family tree type scrapbooks, how did you put yours together? 

(I got this scrapbook album from eBay, so I'm going to use this for my family scrapbook project!)

I think it would depend on how many pictures you have of each.  It might be cute to do each generation.  Such as first few pages would be of the grandparents (yours and his), then the next would be of the parents, and then of you and him separate, then you and him together.  Maybe keeping the 2 sides of the family separate by using a certain color of paper for each, then of you two together a brand new color indicating the start of a new family.

Making sense or am I just jabbering?   Smiley

What I have done is have colors dividing the family. you know your favorite color for your family and his etc. Other pages are left is mine and right is his or the whole left side of the book page is mine and whole right side of the book page is his. so when you open the book it is a uniformed look but still divided. Do you understand what I trying to explain. But my album goes GGparents, Gparents, parents, etc...

Hope that helps
