our honeymoon photo album

Our anniversary-gift-trade-off was that Paul would plan our anniversary celebration, and I would put together our honeymoon photo album.  It worked out perfectly since we both got to work on something we really enjoy (Paul: planning, Me: making photo albums), and we benefited from both things as a couple. 

I used to be really into scrapbooking and made all my photo albums from printed pictures, pretty paper, creative designs and captions.  But since I've gotten more into digital photography, I haven't had the motivation to invest a lot of time or energy in scrapbooking.  I think that's just the way things work: passions change and motivations shift.  Luckily, I have the option of designing and ordering digital photo albums online.  I used a travel theme design and spent several hours choosing just the right lay out for my favorite pictures from our honeymoon to Quebec last June.   

I was so happy with how the book turned out.  If you've got pictures waiting around to be put into a book, you might want to consider using services from a company like Shutterfly or Blurb - BUT, I recommend waiting until their photo books are on sale before buying your photo album.  You can get a much better deal!

P.S. Shutterfly is having a 30% off sale on their photo albums through 1/23/13.
