Years ago, I scrapbooked. Alot. I loved working with Creative Memories products, meeting once a month with other moms to create something wonderful for my children out of rolls and rolls of film.
I just knew there was NO way I would be able to do that for Holly,what with updating this blog and reading all the other blogs I follow. :-) But I found the coolest free software: Blurb
You can publish any kind of book. Of course, I choose Photobook. What I love about it: is not having to upload my pictures to Kodak (or Shutterfly or wherever) and then being limited to the pages they offer. After all, I was used to making my pages from scratch. Blank page, a few stickers and some colored paper.
Blurb offers significantly more layout possibilities than I found at Kodak.com and a fair amount of background choices. Out 66 pages in Holly's book, I made 4 pages in Microsoft Digital Image Editor. So even layout choices for 62 pages, that worked for me!
The price is about what I would have spent making her book by hand. You can see the prices at the Blurb site.
Although I would have loved to create something totally unique for Holly, just like I did for the others. I am estatic to have created a baby book at all!
