Wanna see what I did?

I was offered a free 8 x 8 Shutterfly photo book by Hilton Honors recently and I couldn't say no. I had fun putting it together and it was easy and very straightforward to do. I had been wanting to do a Shutterfly book ever since my sis did one a couple of years ago. Hers turned out really well so I hoped mine would too.

Now that I've received my hardcopy I see that there are a few things I would do differently next time. For one thing, I would make the text smaller and some of the photos larger. For the cover, I used the embellishment "stickers" and although I thought I had them spaced correctly and lined up, I see now that I could have done better. It's all a learning experience though, and I'm certainly very happy with my book!

If you would like to see my entire book, here's an opportunity. Maybe it will inspire you to create your own Shutterfly photo book. I hope so.
The new way to make a photo album: photo books by Shutterfly.

 Don't forget about my knitted socks giveaway. Go to this post to leave me a comment to have a chance at winning!

Take care,

Love this idea: ikat bag: Hamper

I've been wanting to make one of these. How long did it take from beginning to end?

Your photos are always so stunning!

I'm pretty picky so once I had it all loaded onto the site and into the book, I kept going back to "double" & "triple" check that I had everything the way I wanted it. It really doesn't take long at all to upload and position your photos into a book. It's actually a lot of fun! I say, "go do it!"

This is pretty amazing -- it looks so professional, doesn't it? Of course, your photos are what really make this production pop. I've always said that you're a terrific photographer.

Your book is awesome! Did you take all those photos? If so, you need to go into the photography business. They are great.
