I did it.
I love the way it turned out and I can’t believe I was so intimidated to try it. It was easy and took just a couple of hours from start to finish.
I was simply amazed at how user-friendly the tools are. Snapfish’s new photo book enhancements make it easy so you don’t need to worry about a long process. They also have a new feature that designs the book for you. I decided to try it on my own since I wanted the book to be chronological.
It starts with my first trip to Africa, the day Maureen and I met. And ends with a picture of all our rescued Mercy House girls and their three (so far) babies!
I cannot wait to send a copy of the photo book to Maureen in January with some bags we have going over to Kenya. I’m also going to keep a copy for our Mercy House table at events and I loved the idea of using the book as fundraiser… Y’all are so smart.
Here’s a peek (these are screenshots from my book that’s being printed right now):
The day we met in Kenya, Africa: March 10, 20110:
Less than a year later, our dream becomes a reality (with fundraising in America and a full staff, beautiful home and vehicle in Kenya):
Summer 2011: We spent life-changing time in Africa with our staff there:
The best part of the story: our five pregnant girls who needed to be rescued:
The story is just beginning….
Whether or not this book wins the Snapfish contest, this social media love story in pictures is priceless.
