Photo Book

I am terrible at completing projects that I start, so I am thrilled to have discovered Shutterfly's photo books. I have taken close to 300 pictures of Adin so far, and was about to send them off to Costco to be printed when I realized, what on earth am I going to do with all of these pictures??? I can't stop taking them, because he is so darn cute, but let's face it... I haven't even gotten half way through my wedding album! I love scrapbooking, but it requires so much time and thought for me, that sometimes it is overwhelming and ends up not really worth it. So I am trying out these photo books that they offer. The first one I made is only an 8x8 with 20 pages and about 40 pics, but it was so easy- it only took me about a couple of hours. The layouts are pre-selectable, and then you just click and drag the uploaded photos into place. Pretty much it is a combination of a regular photo album with simple scrapbooking. Creating Keepsakes has designed many of the layout options. Anyways, I am pretty excited, and hope that it turns out (I should get it in the mail either the end of this week or early next week). I will let you know how the end product looks, but if you want to see what it should look like, just click on this link:


  1. I love the photo book! It is really cute and I love the idea since I am not a scrapbooker either! You did a great job on Adin's book and I can see how it can get addicting. I will have to look into it! Thanks for sharing!

  2. What a great idea!!! I think the album looks perfect, and what adorable pictures! You'll have to let us know how it turns out when you receive it in the mail.
