Scrap Saturday: A Month in Photos

Today I spent some time uploading pics from August and July to Flickr.  Frustrating because it wouldn't work as planned, but I think I finally got them uploaded.  Now I need to burn them onto CDs.  This is the first month (in a long time) that I actually printed a big batch of 200 photos.  I made some enlargements for family and then printed a bunch of our NY photos for a future mini album (?).

I ran across a blog "Simple as That" by Rebecca Cooper, and she had a great freebie template available for download for compiling some 'month of' photos.  So I thought I'd take the opportunity to post the template and use this as a starting point for 'things to scrap' in the near future.  It was a great month.  :)

There was so much more to capture, but this is at least a start.  :D

How do you archive your photos?  Do you keep them in multiple places (cd, online, hard drive, etc.)?  Do you print all of your photos?  I'd love some helpful tips/ideas on what to do with all of mine before my external hard drive gets full.  :p

I'm excited to have been included in your scrapbook page! I'm horrible at printing photos - I was just thinking about this today and then I read this. I really need to get it together and spend some time printing and scrapbooking!
