The Modern Day Family Photo Album

About a year ago, I discovered this great on-line bookmaking company called Blurb. I have used other companies in the past to have digital albums made, but never been very impressed with the quality. I am happy to say, that the quality of Blurb's paper, printing, binding is exceptional and the prices are fantastic. They have a free software that you can download that is easy to use, customizable with many layout options which is what I have used in the past. I have three albums (2007, 2008 + 2009) that I've been working on for months and months and was just about ready to send them in to be printed, when I discovered that you can also design your books in InDesign and upload a PDF. YAY!! Only problem though is that I cannot export the books I've already made...I have to start all over. NOT YAY! But at least this gives me the opportunity to use my design software, otherwise, I may forget (boy I was rusty). And, these albums will be with us forever, and eventually passed on through the generations, so I guess having to start over and make it perfect is not such a bad thing.

Here's some of the layouts I've started designing for my 2010 Album. I wish there was a way that you could enlarge them as I have put a lot of little details on some the pages. Hmmm...if anyone knows how to do this in Blogger please let me know. thanks.
