    So, I know you guys have seen those nice photo books that everyone has been doing... Well, I got a coupon code from David's Bridal for a free one. I had planned on doing it this weekend since it expired March 31st. When I went into my email to get the code I freakin' must have deleted it at some point thinking it was trash mail!! I am sooo bummed. I was going to make an album for my sister. I don't have the extra 30 bucks as pathetic as that sounds to do it right now. I guess I will have to wait a few months! I really hate being so freakin' blond. Ok I just needed to vent.... I am sooo pissed at myself!

      this is probably a dumb question, but have you looked in your trash/deleted folder to see if its still there?


      Also, I just found out you can buy codes off of ebay, you might try that. I was looking last night and some of them are only $5-7 for a $30 book.

        YAY you are my hero!! I didn't even look through that book.. I actually forgot I got it. I just went and looked in the file cabinet with my reciepts and it was there. I also got an email from them with another code for one. But I guess since I didn't even know I had two I should be happy with one lol!! YAY!!!

          yeah, my trash automatically deletes the messages after so many days. I will look into ebay... I actually want to make four of them! Thanks girls!

          Yeah, Morgan alerted me to the ebay code thing, I'm gonna use that for wedding pic photobooks, after we get our gazillion proofs back and scanned into the computer that is!

          Yay Kat! I'm so happy you found the coupon book! And the email code too. That rocks!

            Sad, our digital pics on CD are not available until 1 year after our wedding!! YOWZA! I fell in love with our photog, and *sigh* this was the only thing i didnt like about our package So we can scan all our proofs (400-600!) and use them as we wish, and we get 100-200 pics on a website within a few weeks, but our photog is very savvy, and I'm sure he will have the kind of pics if you try to right click, it will say something smart like "Contact us for rights to use this photo" or whatever.

            I wish I knew a way around this I understand it's the photographers art and all, and that is how they make money, but it's pictures of ME for jeebus' sake, and it's not like I'm gonna go advertise with my pics or something.

              pictures on a website are too low resolution to print so even if do a screen capture, you can't make a photobook with them.

              a year will go by fast. I have friends who have to wait 4-5 years for theirs.
