I would love to see this topic. I never scrap about my husband and it sort of feels weird to do so, like he's one of my kids or something and I'm scrapping "for" him. I mean, if he thinks it's important, he can scrap or journal or whatever himself - he's just not that kind of guy. (He would never take photos, if I didn't constantly ask him to while he's taking our daughters out somewhere!)
I'm contemplating the idea of a Story Album about our relationship because I think our girls would like that. That's about as far as I can get re: scrapping about him. Would love some other ideas, etc. that make him more of a starring character than the guy in the background who's always getting us extra napkins or finding the booster seats, etc

The easiest way for me to do this is ask him about photos or about his day when the kid isn't around. All his phone photos upload to Dropbox, so it's easy for me to ask him about something I saw. And I find by asking him about his day when the kid is away gives him time to answer and me time to listen.

Jennifer Wilson's (of Simple Scrapper) husband did this great video about what men value:
He'd be a great guest!
I have made pages about my husband and his activities but it just occured to me this week that two of his major hobbies from when we were dating are not captured in our scrapbooks and I really need to cover those two topics so that my daughters can know about the hobbies.
I do less pages about him but I still think it is important to include his story and him in our albums.

@bestcee - thanks for the ideas! I just realized this goes with something mentioned after or on (?) the Journaling Episode of PRT a few weeks ago - someone suggested repurposing emails or letters to use on layouts. I asked my husband to write a letter to our then-not-yet-born daughter for her baby book and I realize that could also work as journaling on a layout because it's so great. And it was (fairly) easy for him to type it out as an email and send to me to print or whatnot. Hmmm, now the wheels are turning

Anandi....here's my two cents......your girls would love an album about their mom and dad!!!
There are probably a ton of things about the two of you that your daughters might not know or remember.....what sports did you play in school, where did your family go on vacations when you were young, your favourite foods, music, movies, books, subjects in school. Have you taken Noell's romantic course? More good ideas!
The older I get the more I would like to know about my parents. I keep trying to jot down notes whenever they say something about their youthful past.
