Hey there girl!
I found that there are often groupons, teambuy and other group buying sites that often have specials on digital photobooks. I bought one from Picaboo not to long ago and was able to produce 2 photobooks with my $100 credit, that I bought for only $39!! I chose the ones with a photowrap cover so not sure how much more leather would be. I used these to make a photo guestbook for my sister in laws shower gift and I am going to make the other one for my fiance for xmas (with pictures of his son through the last few years, awww)
I also just got a $115 groupon for $29 from photobook Canada!! this one doesnt expire until next year so I am going to use it to make books with our wedding photos, and maybe one for BD photos if I get up the guts to actually do it!
Good luck! p.s the process of personalizing and doing the layout of the photobook is super user friendly on Picaboo, it took me a LONG time though, I would say almost 8 hours over several nights to get it just the way I wanted it.
