I had mentioned a while back how much I enjoyed using Blurb for my digital scrap-booking. It is a free download, easy to use and probably cheaper than all the costs that go into paper scrap-booking. On top of that, I don't have the hassle of getting pictures developed and I can print as many copies of my books as I want for grandparents, friends, siblings, etc...

Again, thanks to marrying an Apple user, I can be more creative with programs like Pages to make my lay-outs. I'm sure Windows has some equivalent, but I'm not up-to-date on it. I highly recommend this method of keeping and sharing memories.

Here's my latest page for my daughter's "First Year" book:
If you *hopefully* get hooked and want to know how I transfer my Pages documents to the Blurb program as pictures, just ask and I will pass on what my computer-savvy husband taught me.

Here are some from the book I did for my son's first year:

Hooked yet?!

Oh, those are darling! I love the first one especially. :) I'm afraid I'm hooked on paper-scrapbooking, but can definitely see the benefits of doing it online...especially being able to make multiple copies. Oh well!

Thanks, Anna! One thing I didn't mention (but should have) is that paper-scrapbooking allows you to be more social than what I do.... unless you get together with your friends AND their laptops. =)
