Back when I started scrapbooking, we had 2 little kids and DH had just started his career. We were too broke to pay attention so I spent a lot of time organizing photos into the layouts I wanted to do when I could afford it. Fast forward 10 years and 3 more kids--now I can afford it but I don't have the time!
Laying in bed last night, it hit me that all those photos are still sitting, neatly organized with sticky notes, in a box. I think I'm going to pull them out and throw them into some PL PP and call it done for now! I'm seriously excited about it!! Just wanted to share!!

I think you will love it that way because 1) your pics are not in stuck in a box and 2)you can flip thru them and some memories will come flooding back.
I did this to all of my pics and so happy I did.

I think divided page protectors were one of the best inventions for scrapbooking! You are going to feel such a weight lifted after you get the photos into an album.

That's such a great idea! I'd love to do that with some old photos. Maybe I'll have time one day.

Great plan! I would recommend keeping your sticky notes on the back of photos in the album if you are not doing any journaling spots. Then you could go back and scrap some of your 'moments' if you choose to. Enjoy!

That's similar to how I got started with PL. It was wedding photos for me.
Glad you're excited!
