FInished MIni ablum on the go

Happy Wednesday and Happy Birthday to ME!!!! That is correct--today is the day I entered this crazy world 33 years ago!

I have the completed album and I really like how it turned out--I have not been a big fan of kits but i like being able to add the extras and personalize it a bit more than just following the instructions.  I may give this to my sister who is taking my nieces to NYC this summer for the first time--what a great way to capture the memories of this summer vacation.

Hope you enjoy the video--I am super sorry about the lighting--not many options in a hotel room!!!

  18. That looked a lot easier than starting from scratch. Good for a vacation. You could bring the little 4x6 printers like Canon's Selphy which is only about 5x7" and 3" tall (suitcase sized!). Thanks for the great album!
