    "What kind of statement is that? Start a thread and SHOW US THE PICS!!!!!"
    ~Tami

    Still makes me laugh.

    Here is a photobook I made on shutterfly. It's for my grandma to take to the bingo hall & show her friends. The cover is blue satin. The pictures are our engagement pics, the day we got engaged & some favorite travel pics including a recent trip to england & france. There are a lot of normandy pics b/c my grandma is very interested in WW2. The books are $29.99, but there are always deals to get them for less. Mine have all been free!

          You can change the backgrounds. You could pick a different one for every page. I just wanted to keep it simple & use the same one throughout. I made a mother's day book & used different backgrounds & frames for each page. It took forever!!!

              Gosh that is really good quality. I'm wondering if it would be a good format for my BD pics. Can you really get in and choose the backgrounds and sizes of photos pretty easily It looks like it turned out really nice. Good work!

                  That's a beautiful book. I'm going to have to look into that.

                    Thanks! Yes, it's really easy to use. It can just be time consuming because of all the choices. You upload all the pictures which is simple. Then gather them together for the project. Then you click layout options, background options & frame options & just start dragging the pictures into the frames. You can add text or leave the text boxes blank. At the end you can rearrange the pictures. That may have sounded more complicated than it really is.

                    You can save the project too. I usually have to break it into multiple sessions because I'll spend so long on one book.

                    My guest book will ship next week. I'll post it then. It has 1 small picture per page & lots of space for signing.
