Baby Books

So for all of you who are like me and CAN NOT and have NO DESIRE to scrapbook- you should use one of these online programs like Picaboo, Shutterfly, MyPublisher, etc. Nic and I have made a few Shutterfly books in the past and they are way easy, cute and cheap.
Anyway, after over a year of trying to decide how to do baby books (and buying and returning nearly a dozen), I decided to use Picaboo to make their books. The only down side is that you can't add pages once it's printed. I just figure I'll make them a book each year or so (hefty goal, I know), until they can do their own. I've attached links to the finished products! The blank pages and spots in their books are for glue-ins (birth announcements, locks of hair, shower invitations, etc.) ENJOY!

Steff...I think those turned out awesome! I think I did Tanner's first year on our apple, but I never finished it and I haven't really started Jake's at all. I totally gave up a long time ago on scrapbooking by hand...that is a definate lost cause. I looked at shutterfly once or twice, but maybe I will tryi Picaboo. Your books turned out sooo cute! And it is way less time consuming!

Ok Steff - so where were you when I posted on my BLOG about digital scrapbooking asking if anyone did it, and if so what site they used....this is exactly what I'm looking for!! I'm so sick of scrapbooking. I'm done w/ Sage's baby book, but for our family photo books and future baby books, this is what I want to do. Will you email me and let me know how much these baby books cost so I can get an idea? Do you prefer picaboo to the other sites you mentioned? I'd love to hear what you think as I am definitely going to do it. OH, and the books are SO SO darling. I love them!

Oh, and I want to come see them in person too...do you have them yet? Plus I want to see you! It's been too long. Let me know. :)

Those are definitely a non-scrapbookers best friend! Love them! They really turned out so great Steff. I made a scrapbook for Q's parents last year and it was the first and last I will ever attempt. Crafty is not my thing, you'd think maybe.... but no.

Those are really cute steff. Good work. Nic stopped by the store the other day, but I wasn't here. I've been meaning to call him back but I haven't yet. I'm horrible. Are you guys going to Ohio for Christmas or are you staying here?
