11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys :)

So I am very organized and have put all of my pictures with my SO in scrapbooks. Do you think that's a good idea? After reading reviews, I have realized that they ask you to hand them your pictures but mines are cut and glued in my scrapbook (which i must say scrapbooking takes ALOT of time and dedication). I also read a review where someone had a scrapbook and it wasn't a problem but now i am second guessing it :blink:

why not scan your scrap book and print copies of it? you can always bring the original and give them the photocopies.

Single pictures are better. Its fast and easy to slide through the glass window.

i dont think age is an advantage or a disadvantage when i filed i was 19 and for the interview 20 hubby is 22 and we had no problem with that....the only question we were asked was if we were married before and if we had any kids that the only two questions that i would think were in someway related to age...like for exmple if i was married before he would ask at what age i married before you know what i mean?? but the only important thing is the relationship between you and your love one.. if its true or nott

Age shouldn't hurt you, unless you and your SO have a huge age difference then it is fine. My husband and I are both 22.

And yes, you can bring the scrapbook and show it through the window since it won't fit through the small hole. If you can, bring individual pictures to make it easy for the CO.
