I am planning to make a scrapbook with my husbands old photo's, awards and newspaper articles from his high school football days. I have limited time to scrapbook. Is thier a kit/product that may expedite this yet keep it classy to preserve his great memories?

We have some great collection kits called Simple Stories that work perfectly with the We R Memory Keepers binders. These kits make it very easy to put an album together in no time at all. Here are a couple of links with more information:

Another option is to find an album you like (12" x 12" would probably be best) and make very simple layouts with photos and articles. You could adhere your pieces to black cardstock (or another color if you prefer), using photo corners if you do not want to put adhesive on items. Scrapbooking your husband's memories this way would keep the focus on the photos and memorabilia rather than the embellishments.

We also have a nice selection of album kits in stores and online. Here's the link to the Annex: http://www.archiversannex.com/Scrapbooking-Kits/Album-Kits/default.aspx?PageID=20&CategoryID=67

Stop by your local Archiver's and they'll be more than happy to help you find the right album for your project! Hope this helps!
