Sneak Peek – CdLS Photo Book

A few months ago I began working on a project to create a CdLS Photo book. This book will be donated to the silent auction at this year’s CdLS National Conference in Chicago (which is next week…yipee!!). Parents from the CdLS Online Support Group donated photos, poetry and other commentary and I put them all together in my first attempt at digital scrapbooking. I’ve previously created photo books using Picaboo (basically just used their pre-created templates and drag-n-dropped the photos) however, after hearing many good things about the quality of Shutterfly photo books I decided to give them a try. I also liked the fact that Shutterfly offered a 12″ x 12″ size photo book (standard size for scrapbooks) and you could create custom photo covers and have the title printed on the spine.

The completed book arrived today and I am just thrilled with it! Thought I’d share a sneak peek with you (photos below). If you’ll be at the Chicago conference, you can check out the book “in person” at the silent auction table. After the conference I’ll be posting a link to view and/or order copies of the book. Enjoy!

See you at the conference!
