Family Yearbook

I'm not a good scrapbooker. I've tried to make scrapbooks before but failed. I just don't like cutting everything out and arranging them on a page, gluing it all down. And I'm not too creative either. But I have a ton of pictures that are just sitting on my computer. I've done a few photobooks from different online sites. I like doing that and for Christmas Dave got me some scrapbook software. So for the past few months I've been putting that software to good use and I made a Family Yearbook for 2008. I made cute pages with my software of all of the things we did last year (Logan being born, trip to Disneyland, family reunion in Reno....) and uploaded those pages to Shutterfly and made the cutest book. And when I was working in it a couple weeks ago I noticed photobooks were on sale so I upgraded to a bigger book and finished it. It came today and I love it. I want to go back and make a yearbook for each year since we've been married and then keep it up so I make one each year. My friend says she does the same thing but uses her blog posts for her yearbook. So what else does everyone do with all of those pictures on their computer?

I don't really like to scrapbook either. I think it takes too much time and $$. I just use my blog for my pictures, but I have never printed anything out really. Maybe I should do that this year. I know there are places that will print your blog and put it into a book for you... have you ever done that? I need to look into that!

I love the family yearbook idea! I have done photobooks for my kids, but I like the idea of covering the whole year as a family.

LaAna has looked into printing her blog and said there is program that allows you to print your blog like a scrapbook and to organize, etc.

What program did you use, Kasey? I'd love to do that for Karl and I -- especially since it is still early in the game!!! ;)
