I took advantage of a MyPublisher free extra pages coupon code in January to get a great deal on a book of all our 2011 photos. 100 pages of lovely memories!
I went with the linen cover (because it's the cheapest, and because I couldn't pick just one photo to use on a photo cover), and I actually really like it! I'm hoping to continue doing matching books with the linen cover for each year from now on.
I used one of the marbled inside-cover options for the first time, and I love it!
Of course, MyPublisher didn't disappoint with the crisp pages and vellum overlay! Perfect, as always.
I filled the pages with a bunch of photos and brief text descriptions labeling the month and event.
January: we finished decorating our apartment!
March: the Houston rodeo
Spring Break trip!
More new house photos!
Family Reunion at the Lake
Of course, I included photos from all the wonderful weddings we've been to this year:
Dan & Kristen
Kevin & Brianne
Colin & Laura
Alan & Katie
Our first trip to the antique auction!
Our 1st Anniversary
South Padre Island Vacation
Trip to South Carolina
Even with 100 pages to use, I was starting to run out of space as I got to the end of the year. Some of the Christmas photos ended up in pages like this:
I ended the book with the photos from our New Year's Eve party:
Our 2011 book lives on a shelf in the living room with our Honeymoon book and Engagement book.
For now, I have them standing up facing forward, but once we get another couple of years worth of books, I'll probably flip them and store them regular bookshelf-style.
Does anyone else do yearly photobooks? I'm pretty much in love with the idea. It's SO much easier to make a year-long book of photos on MyPublisher than to scrapbook a year's worth of photos!
