I've been scrapbooking for 10 years and I also have photos dating back 10 years! My question is, I feel so overwhelmed, how do I scrapbook the last 10 years of my life? Thanks!

Don't worry, you're not alone! It can be really hard to keep up on scrapbooks! Don't get overwhelmed with the number of years, just start where you want and work from there. Choose the big events to scrap, maybe one from each month (or two or three depending on what you did that year) and scrap those first. You can always go back and scrap the events in the middle once you feel like you've made a dent. Go through photos and pick your favorites and either write on the backs or on post-it notes so you don't forget the memories attached to the photos.
A great system we love to use for fast scrapbooking is the We R Memory Keepers albums and Simple Stories collection packs. They're designed to work together and make scrapping a breeze. You can use the traditional 12" x 12" pages to scrap, but then use the "hybrid" pages to include just photos or half photos/half scrapbooking elements.

You can always stop by your local Archiver's and they'll be more than happy to help you find the products that are right for you! Hope this helps!
