I have started to look at the photos DH too while on our African Adventures (approx 2,000 photos in 14 days!) and decide which ones I want to print and use on my scrapbook pages.
After the last 2 Africa holidays in 2007 & 2009, I decided that I was not going to create a whole album for this trip. I have however decided that I could not go without creating some pages, but I will be adding them to the back of the 2009 album.
What I have found is that after 2 trips to Africa to watch the wildlife, I have so many pages featuring many of the animals we also saw this trip. So, this time I wanted to feature things that were different or unique to this trip.
I started this process the other day by looking through the pictures and writing a list of the animals or events I want to create pages about (along with the photo number).
I have now created a PowerPoint file and on each page I create a title and import the photos I want to use, this also gives me the chance to write any journaling.

I can then take my A4 sheets and start to look for papers & embellishments to match each.
I would love to know how you go about scrapping your holidays or big events - do you plan ahead or just print out all the photos and have a pile left unused at the end????
Just before I sign off here are a couple of photos...
OK... I could not just choose a couple - I even had problems deciding on just 5!!!!!
Happy Crafting :)
