As most of you know, I've discovered digital scrapbooking. Well, I finished a scrapbook of the photos from my childhood. I've done it so that myself and my two sisters each have at least a couple of pages to ourselves. Holidays, vacations, and pets we owned are each grouped together.
I ordered 1 printed and bound version. I only ordered 1 right now, because I have never done this before and I want to see if it's worth the money before I buy 2 more of them.
The "waiting" part is, thankfully, only until tomorrow. I just tracked it and it should be delivered then! I haven't seen most of these photos in print since before I got married. I've had the digital photos for about 5 years now but haven't been able to print them. Most of them were polaroids and last time I checked, their size wasn't an option from some of the better quality photo printers.
Here's one of the pages of just me:
I ordered the album as a 12" x 12" hardcover with photo and lay-flat pages. Here's the cover (using the only professionally photographed picture in the album):
I'm the tall one with my middle sister on the left and youngest on the right. If the album is even half as nice as I'm hoping, you can guess what my sisters are each getting for Christmas! My youngest sister doesn't have any copies of our childhood photos, digital or otherwise so I know she'll be thrilled.
There are some photos that I didn't use in the album but I'm going to put all of the digitals on a CD and include it with the album.
I've already got an album for my mother planned, showing her family tree, but I want to see the print one before I start work on it.
Well, now I can get back to stitching for a bit.
