The idea was simple enough...gather up the photos from the trip, plunk them into a Shutterfly book, and get it printed. Mr AC selected the best of the photos for me. But then I started back-scrapping some of these photos and started building the book, and then I found I could hardly leave any of the photos unprinted, the next thing you know, there are 15 scrapbook pages and 285 photos spread across 60 pages.
Oh and, a cover. A book has to have a cover. To make it simple, I chose one of Simply Kelly's Uppercase Alpha templates, similar to the London book. I chose something significant from each part of the trip - the Eiffel Tower of course, the hall at Versailles, the casino in Monte Carlo, the port of Portofino, the Ponte Vecchio in Florence and the duomo in Milan. Background papers and elements are from the Oscraps collab Journey, and I found this great alpha by Amanda Wolff in a travel folder in my scrapbook templates. Of course there were issues with getting the cover to fit, despite making it the size as suggested on the Shutterfly help pages.
And then of course there was a problem with the groupon. The last one I used for the London book went just fine, but this one would not take. Fortunately Shutterfly has live chat available and the nice person gave me the credit for the book. Phew!
Shutterfly baby photo books are the perfect way to preserve your baby's precious moments.
