Frozen Fun Friday with Pam

After going through some 18 boxes it hit me that maybe the photos were in an album...It has been years since I have put photos in a dedicated album without scrapbooking them first. So lesson learned and quite a lot of organizing of photos has been accomplished in the finding.
I used the logo in the cut off strip to make the tiny sign.
This is the only tittle. I am scrapbooking for myself, so my rules say that not all pages need a clever title.
Close-up of the journaling. It reads;
'Some Grandmas wear army boots, Dartanian's Drives a Lawn Tractor'
Then his name and age in the other  flower.  I was able to put the year on the bottom of the left hand LO using existing numbers and pop dotting the add ins. I snipped some of the numbers previously cut out into his name on the bottom of the right hand page. I did highlight with a yellow marker to pop it a bit.

and just know you want to try this

Fun Friday with Pam

Feeling very nostalgic about Bo Bunny lately. I had discovered these unusual papers by them {Zip-A-Dee-Doodle} and knew exactly what I wanted to do with them. I snipped the center numbers out of each page.
Next I fussy cut each number individually. They will be inked around the edges then pop dotted over a matching number around the layout.
I got this far...then went in search of the photos that I want for this double page LO. I thought 20 minutes to find. Well 2 hours later, I packed it in for the day. The next day, I searched ALL day, still not luck.
So now I am in the middle of a major overhaul on the photo files. As you can see by the existing boxes, I do have a system that works for me most of the time.
I do an immediate once over when I get a new batch printed. Dates, groupings, events. I have labeled box files for all the major holiday's. All Easter, All Christmas, Thanksgiving. Road Trips and Vacations. I group all the kids birthday and school photos into 'child name' then separated by grade. {they will usually fit in one box] so if I am searching events, all the kids are in that box under that event.
 I am sorry to say, I still have stacks and packs  of  photos. Most are labeled with sticky noted bits, dates, names, ideas for journaling.  Things like that. But alas the photos I need NOW are elusive. I have run amok with the random photo many, no particular order, it is just sit down with a random box and search....sigh... I will get the layout completed when I find the photos.
In the mean time,
How do you organize your photos?
Because I am not is some serious help by people way more organized than me. Warning, they talk about tossing some out...GASP...
