I put together this little photo album for my daughter to flip through when I need her quietly occupied. It is a compilation of mostly pictures of her, but also pictures of my husband and I as children and of course, a few pictures of our dog.
It wasn't important for this to be a high-quality keepsake. My main goal was to complete the book quickly. I did go through the extra effort to add labels to each photo using picasa, but I made sure it was a very quick process.
I cropped every photo to be oriented the same way even if it made the picture awkward so that it would be easier for my 1 year old to flip through and look at each picture at the correct angle.
The flip book cost me a dollar at walmart and was meant to hold 24 pictures. Using the front and back sleeve you could easily fit in an extra 4. I left the very back blank so I ended up with 27 total photos. My cover photo was a 4x6 just like the others, but I then cut it down slightly to show the existing backdrop.
As evidence of her little fingers being in practically every photo, my daughter loves her book. (Who doesn't love looking at themselves?) I want to make another one featuring extended family members and one showcasing the letters of the alphabet. Such an easy and rewarding "craft".
I am a young mother, a wife, a friend to my rescued pitbul/boxer puppy, avid crafter, and when I find the time I like to read good books. I wish I could share more of my blessed life with you all on this little blog, but the reality is I just do not feel safe. So you will only get a peak into my life, but please enjoy :)
I have recently gotten into reviewing books for WaterBrook Multnomah Publishers and need a little help. In order to continue the program I need people to rank my reviews. It's so easy... just use the rating bar under each of my reviews, give me as many stars as my review is worth, and input your email address. As an added bonus for ranking my review, your name will also be put in a drawing to win a copy of the book! Thanks for your help!
