Photo Books

Have you ever made a photo book after your vacation?

Yesterday, I won a free 8x8 photo book from Shutterfly through the Coke Rewards program. I've never made an on-line photo book before, but hey, it was free. If I messed it up too badly, at least I wouldn't be out a lot of money.

Since my family has visited the Disneyland Resort two to three times per month since last July, I thought that would be a great subject for the book. Here is a link to my finished effort:

I had a lot of fun making the book. I'm sure it is a poor effort compared to other photo book experts out there. I'm sure some of you are on this site. Does anyone else have theme park/travel related links they would like to share to give us some great ideas? Or maybe some would like to share some tips?

I have recently made 3 of these, one for my disneyland photos for this year and one for my trip to europe last year. I also went back and redid my 2010 one that I started but never got finished. I've always found I have too many photos I want to put in and I never have room or can be bothered putting captions in. I find them great for carting round to show people where I went, as long as they are interested of course. I tend to use one background through out and stick with it.

great idea.. they will love it when older and it will bring back fun memories as well.. with the price of making a photo book now and this for free, it getting to be a nice thing to have at least one of for the kids to have for later in life..

good job and yours it look good..:)
