it came!

It really came over a week ago... I just forgot to post about it!
I love, love, love it!



This is my 2007 book (only 6 months) compared to 2008 (a full year).


This truly is the reason I started a blog... to make this book at the end of each year. We have so much fun looking back through them... all the pictures and all the things I would have forgotten.



So many options for page layouts!


And great quality pictures!


Love, love, love it!
And since I know many of you are wondering... how much did it cost?
They charge you by the number of pages and I had as many pages as you are allowed. (almost)
I got the most expensive cover (Image Wrap... picture printed directly on the cover, no dust jacket. This is a new option... love it.)
Basically, it was as expensive as it could possibly be.
I paid $95. (I had a coupon for $10 off shipping)
Totally worth the money in my opinion.
And... I figure I could easily spend that much at a scrapbook store, and not leave with any finished product.

Did I mention that I love it?

That looks great! I need to do it, but I'm worried about time...so if you get started, can you save and stop and go back to it?? Or do you have to do it all at once?

Shannon... I worked on this for months! I started it in Jan., then got into my first trimester and did nothing with it for a couple months. It just saves on your hard drive and you go back in and work on it whenever you get a chance! I would usually try and do a month at a time (which took me about an hour to an hour and a half).

I just loved it too. Thank you for bringing it to Bible School!

It's beautiful, Amy! I was so excited when I first read about making your blog into a book. I definitely want to have that tradition too. Thank you for sharing your experiences and amazing finished product!!

Wow! No wonder you love it. You've convinced me. I'm going to look into it for this year.

I can't wait to see it! I really want to start working on one - you will have to give me some tips.

That is so neat! I think I might do one too! How did you do it? Do you have to start over to make the book, or can you transfer your blog stuff over into the book? That is so special to be able to have!
