2 page layouts

I am VERY far behind in my kid's albums. My daughter is 26 and my son is 24 and I am a fairly slow scrapbooker. I don't like to reinvent the wheel everytime I sit down to scrap so I use the same papers and similar embellies for both of their pages. I use most of the same photo's but may change a few to ones that highlight them more.

Sorry for the very bad photos. It was gloomy the day I took these pictures and my camera has been giving me problems. I think it's time for a new one but I hate to spend the money.

The photos in this Easter layout are from 2006 and the paper's arent' my favorite but I'm trying to use up old papers and (gasp!) stickers. I wish I could say I used the Cricut somewhere on these pages but I didn't. I joined the Cricut Circle so I'm trying to pinch pennies in different areas and using some old supplies is one of them.

The top layout goes in my daughter's album. The top main photo is of all the granddaughters with Grandma. You'll also notice the bottom photo right photo on the first page shows my son and cousin in a nice photo.
Now look at the same photo on my son's layout. It shows him and his cousin goofing off and shows more of their relationship with each other. The top photo is of Grandma with all the grandsons.
The cardstock colors are basically the same but are in different places on each layout.
It's a small change but a few details makes each layout specific for them and I don't reinvent the wheel with each layout and I get a lot more photos in their albums and thats the goal.
Again, so sorry for the very bad photos.

Great idea for when you are doing the same event pics for two different books!
