That looks so great - and what a good idea about a yearly book!

~Michelle~

that looks so great! Maybe that's what I'll do with the bazillion photos we ended up with from Alaska!

Anita

Cool! I like the idea of working in InDesign too. We have so many pre-digital and post-digital photos floating around. It sure would be nice to have them all together in one place. I love the idea your friend uses. I think I'm going to have to look into that! Thanks for the review on Blurb.

Amy Hodge

Love this!

Anne

Thank you so much for writing a review about Blurb. I've ordered a book through Apple's Aperture that turned out great and one through Shutterfly that I wasn't so thrilled with. Yours looks great. The different colors for each city is a fantastic idea.

Angela

Your book looks awesome. I love the layout. I've used Shutterfly, perhaps I'll give Blurb a try, also.

Cascade Lily

Fantastic! I like your friend's idea too. I want to do a couple of Blurb books, but just don't have the time, so doing it 'as I go' really appeals. And duh, why didn't I think of that myself? Now you've spurred me on, I might just get that wedding book done (it's only been nearly six years!!)

Beth

What a beautiful book! I love that you color coded the cities.

I use blurb with our family blog every year and love it. I take the photos and text yearly from Jan 1 to Dec 31 and publish them as a family blog book. Blurb is great for desktop publishing and I've always been happy with the quality. One of the best parts is that I can compile it anytime (last year I didn't get around to the 2008 book until April). I love having a little summary of our year at my fingertips and on our bookshelf.

I haven't done one for my knitting, but maybe one day I'll have to make a FO book. I wonder if I can slurp my content from ravelry?

I've used blurb once so far to turn my blog into a book. It's so easy because it will slurp all the posts and photos right over to blurb and then you just have to arrange it. I did have to copy and paste my comments because they didn't transfer. It made such a beautiful book and I plan to do it once a year (my husband gets this for me for my birthday). It's such a great book for all my projects and it doubles as a baby book for my son, since I started my blog when he was 3 mths old. Your book turned out beautifully! Love how you color coded the different places you traveled. :)

Audrie

That's such a great idea! Holiday pictures always get lost in the recesses of my computer. And I do like the idea of a yearly record in pictures too.

montague

thanks for the tips... and this genius idea! i need to make something like this for my trip to india from last year...

RosaMaría

that is a very great idea! mi cousing en Colorado did the same thing for her wedding pictures... i dont know if we have these service here.. i hope so...

Oiyi

The book looks wonderful! I was thinking of making a book for Melody's first year. Your friend is so smart. A little at time is so much easier than all at once. Maybe that's why I haven't done it yet.

CitricSugar

Great tips -thanks!

And your photos look amazing - awesome layout!

Allie

This is AMAZING. I am SO impressed. Something like this just may get me into scrapbooking, lol - so much easier! I would dearly love to do books like this for my boys.
Wow.

melissa

oh man that book is awesome!! i love the color coding, it just looks fantastic!
now i want to abandon all my other plans for the day and make photobooks so i can be just like you!

Rachel

Your book looks fantastic. Blurb is my idea of scrapbooking. I've been thinking about making a book myself, trying to decide between Apple, Shutterfly, and Blurb. There are too many options. I didn't know that blurb had an In Design template. That definitely sways my opinion. I'm all about having control over my design.

Christine

Super idea! And thanks for the money saving tips :) this will be a nice memory!

Kim

I'm making a blurb book now, so thanks for the tips! Your book looks amazing.

jessica

I've always wanted to make up a blurb book--thanks for the inspiration and suggestions. I love the idea of a yearly book-I might try that for 2010 (is it really so soon?!?) Have a great Thanksgiving!

amandajean
