I started scrapping in earnest in 2003 when I made an an album for a trip to Italy although I've been putting together scrapbooks in one form or another since I was a teenager. My style tends to be pretty clean with lots of straight lines & I don't scrap chronologically. I don't have children, so I also often find myself using my scrapbooking as a form of journaling. I did "inherit" six grandchildren when I was remarried last year, so you will see them beginning to appear in my layouts. My favorite album to date is one I did of all of my grandfather's artwork.
