Free Large Photo Book – update



So, I was up last night with strep throat…bad news. Good news is, it gave me some time to get my free Picaboo photo book designed! It’s actually a pretty pleasant process. You have to download the Picaboo software (which they do have for Mac), then you select your photos and background images. It was relatively simple. Now, I was not the biggest fan of the default backgrounds they had to offer, but I discovered that they have tons more free (and much cuter) backgrounds here on their website. All you have to do is download the image and set it as the background. I used the Aidan Collection for all of my pages and I think it turned out great. I would definitely consider using them again. The shipping total came out to $8.99. I think that’s a great deal for a 20 page 8.5 x 11 photo book. I’ll let you know how it looks when it gets here in a week. Don’t forget to order yours during the month of March!

Freebie Alert – Large Custom Photo Book

Found out about this great deal from The Mom Creative! Picaboo is offering all first-time customers a free large photo book. I’ve never used Picaboo before, but I think it might be worth a try to get a free photo book. I’ve been wanting to order one with Zander’s first year of pictures and I think I might just give it a try. The deal runs through March, so jump on and order. Click here for the rest of the details.

Free Paper Doll downloads

These print-yourself paper dolls from Wee Wonderfuls are so stinkin’ cute. Sadly, this freebie is not for me, because, well, I have a little boy. However, I’m trying to think of a little girl I know who I could make some for…I may just have to make some in faith that one day I’ll have a little girl. (Oh, I love the idea of using magnets so that they don’t have to have tabs.)
