Staying in 2013
Gentle ripple waves

Can we talk about photo books?

On the 21st I mentioned that I had created a snapfish account as a place to store my iPhone and iPad photos and that I had created a photo book of my 2010 and 2011 iPhotos.

As a scrapbooker it feels a little odd making photo books but in all honesty I wish I had done this years ago. I love to print the perfect photo and rifle through my stash to make layouts but I should have been far more selective with the photos I chose to scrap and the rest should have gone into these clever books.

In the past few days I have also created books of my trip to the Kruger National Park in 2012 and our trip to Cape Town in 2013.

I have absolutely loved creating each and every page and reliving each memory with it.

I didn't use all 13million elephant photos I took but I did use quite a few of the lion photos as it was a rare treat so see so many little ones feasting on the carcass of a recent kill. We imagined that the rest of the pride were lazing under the trees just on the other side of that mound!

Once I have caught up with my iPhone photo books I will work on the many CDs and DVDs that I have containing years worth of digital photos. Thankfully they are in year order so i'm sure it won't take long to get them all in book form.
As for all the film photo prints, well that's a discussion for another day!
