Craft Day - Photo Book

a year in my life project
Each year I make a photo book for my little bear.  We take so many pictures of him through out the year, that just sit on the computer and never get used.  When he was 6 months old I made his first book.  It was a perfect little album that can be stored easily, so a tradition was born.  

Now I make a new book after his birthday in August each year.  So each book ends with the birthday party pictures.  My little bear loves to read the books and look at the pictures of himself.  He calls them "the stories of me."

This year I used  My Memories Suite to build the book.  I really do love this program.  I use it all the time, but this was really the first time I actually made an album.  I thought the whole process was simple and great.  

Once I had the book finished, I uploaded it to Persnickety Prints and used them to print the book.  Again, the process was easy and the results were wonderful. 

I discovered Persnickety Prints a few months ago and have used them for all my photo printing needs ever since.  I have used other online photo places in the past, but none of them compare to the value and quality that I get at Persnickety.

I highly recommend them.  Plus they have so many great free digital scrap booking kits.  It really is worth checking out just for that.

  14. It's really cute that your little bear calls his photobook 'the story of me'. I can't wait for the time when my little angel would be able to browse at her own photobook too. The idea of printing photobooks has also gotten into me after seeing my sister do the same with her children's photos. I think this is a great way of documenting their growth. It's beautiful and can last a lifetime too. :) Shelley Dade
