I have always wanted to make a photo book, but the idea of sitting down and pilfering thru hundreds of photos and adding captions is something I never felt like I had time for.
Ok, that’s not entirely true. One time I tried to turn my blog into a photo book and the book was 420 pages and cost $1000.00, not to mention there were a million photos (these numbers are not at all inflated). The whole experience was completely overwhelming and discouraging. Since then I’ve sort of had a bad attitude towards photo books.
Oh, I love the way they look, all organized and personalized and coffee table-ized. I’ve just have never had time to actually create one.
At least that’s what I thought. I’m participating in Snapfish’s “Your Creative Lens Thru LIfe” Holiday Campaign, which is basically a really great reason for me to create my first photo book. They also have a very cool new tool that helps design your book for you.
There’s a contest between the ten bloggers in the campaign. The contest will be judged on how creative the photo books are. If my photo book is selected as the winner, I get Snapfish credit and the first 100 people who comment on this post will receive an exciting gift from Snapfish! Cool, huh?
Good thing I like pressure.
So, here’s my question: What should the theme of my book be? [My first thought was Mercy House??]
I need y’all to leave a comment with your suggestions to help me create a unique photo book…if you have a great idea, tell me about it. If you’ve made books before and have suggestions on themes or layouts, I need those too.
I can’t wait to show you what I create. You know, as soon as y’all decide for me!
Important: Please leave your EMAIL in your comment so there’s a contact for when WE WIN!
Yes, that’s called faith, people.
