This is a work in progress for me as well. I would suggest scanning all photos (or having a service do it for you if it's beyond your abilities) before adhering them to pages. My grandfather made beautiful scrapbooks of his early years, but family members pulled the photos out to use for something--always intending to return them, I'm sure--but of course many are now missing. Now that we can quickly & easily scan the original, the photos can be shared with extended family (and no one will be tempted to 'borrow' a photo!). I would also suggest scanning the pages you've made so they could be put in a Shutterfly-type book--that way many copies can be made for interested family members. This also has the added benefit of preserving your work--if your original books are lost or damaged, there will be lots of other copies out there.
