I haven't scrapbooked in a long time and I'm thinking of starting a scrapbook of my boyfriend and myself. We don't really have pictures with friends (we always have them take pictures of us, and we take pictures of the other couple for example whereas we need to ask someone to take a picture of the 4 of us), but we have pictures of us for example at the beach and pictures of our friends who went with us on the same beach. Would you include these pictures in a scrapbook or do you think it should just be pictures of us? I keep going back and forth.. I want it to be a 'couples scrapbook' but can't decide whether we should include pictures of other people.

I would include the friends. The activity you did with them is part of the experience of being a couple. By excluding pictures of the friends you are rewriting what happened at that activity. 20-40 years from now I think you'll find the full story about the activity (who all was there) is more entertaining than the focus on the two of us to the exclusion of the other people who contributed to the fun or the drama of the activity.

Include the friends. You can make the pictures of the friends smaller than the pictures of the two of you if you want but I would include them. Who you know and who you spend your time with is part of who you are as a couple. If you were alone, you would spend your time with diffrerent people.

Thanks for your input! I was thinking the same thing, but didn't know if it'd look weird in the scrapbook.. now to actually start on a scrapbook. Sounds like such a huge task!

No rules....if you want to include pics of others do it! It's your book remember.
