perhaps you could do a larger scrapbook or put the page of memories on one side with the other page illustrated with pictures, etc.  that will help you for the areas that you have a complete typed page.  perhaps you could antique the page with tears and perhaps some antiquing using tea?

If you look up some basic scrap techniques you will find different ways to include stories. You can type a story on a piece of paper, fold it into an envelope then glue the envelope to the page face side down. And for the parts where you have a lot of picuters, let them do the talking. You don’t need an entire story sometimes you just need captions stating the basics. If you use circles or squares of solid colors to balance out the page you can break your story up into those shapes between the pictures.

If you are having trouble narrowing it down/organizing into logical order you could pick a style. You could do a page or spread for each month or just do a spread for each major event in chronological order.

Sorry for the novel, hope this helps!

You can also split up the story to add pictures, tickets, etc. So you place a few paragraphs per page and then add embellishments, pictures or mementos that go along with each paragraph.

This takes up more pages as the story will go on for multiple pages but it can make the wording of the story seem less overwhelming.

Also to get started do one story at a time and lay it all out on the pages before you glue any of it down it will help organize your thoughts and organize the pages. (Actually as I say this I have seven scrapbook pages laid out on my kitchen table that I started working on last night)

Good Luck
