You've Taken The Photos, Now What?

At Relief Society tonight we had wonderful instruction on how to take the best photos, and then I gave a presentation on what you can do with your photos. Below is the outline I used. We then made a coaster hanging frame. It was so fun! Thanks ladies!

Digital Book Suggestions by Jessica Evans:
Tinyprints- So cute! To die for designs, but runs on the high side for cost.
Mixbooks- Has great pre-done designs and fun layouts to create your own. Cost is average.
Artscow- Sign up for thier e-mails and you well get some great prices. Has been known to be a little harder to work with and have a printing problem every once in the while, but the prices can't be beat.
Picaboo- You actually download it to your computer, very cute start page. Prices average. Look on for great deals.
Shutterfly- The one that began it all. Super fun and easy to work with, prices are high. Sign up for newsletter and they do send out some good deals.
