A Year of Memories!

I love taking pictures. Between my camera and phone, I take thousands of pictures of the kids every year. I also am too lazy to develop them and put them in an album. That's why I love photo books. Last year, I started a new tradition where I create a photo book to round-up all the pics I take. My favorite site for photo books is Shutterfly (this is not a sponsored post, I'm just mentioning my favorite site, there are many more you can use).

I have the Shutterfly app on my phone and just upload pics as I take them. Then, at the end of the year, I just go through the pics and put together my book. Now, I am very indecisive so it takes me about three months to finalize my book. There are so many layouts, page ideas, embellishments, frames, etc that you can use. It's very hard for me!

Today, I want to share our 2013 book with you. First, some of the pages so you can get an idea of layouts and embellishments. Then there's link to the full photo book.


Page 1: On the first page, I write a little summary of our year. This year I wrote that we had our first family vacation, JC's first Crossfit competition, I started a blog!!, Gian lost his first tooth and so on. 

Like I mentioned before, there are many layouts you can use. I usually start the book with a bunch of random pics from the first two or three months of the year. 

From our day at the circus........

Our little Cinco de Mayo celebration at home:

Of course, a sports page....

Back to School....

Our Halloween fun...

Our first family photo shoot. These were my favorites from the shoot.

I always end the book with another round-up of random pics. Some don't really have a holiday or event associated with them. It's just us having fun together throughout the year.
