my photobook anniversary gift
My anniversary gift to Tommy was a Mixbook photobook completely customized by me. It was the visual narrative of our first year as husband and wife - we had a doozy of a year together and I wanted to capture those moments in a way that we would never forget them.
Up to this point, I have made photo books from Kodak, Snapfish, and Shutterfly...but honestly...Mixbook was, by far, the best. The best custom options, best backgrounds, best layouts and best add on stickers do-dads to add to the pages. A bit like scrap booking. However, there are options to add your own pictures to their amazing pre-made backgrounds as well - next time I might do that.
The fist thing I noticed when I got the book in the mail was that the picture quality was sharp and fantastic. I poured over this book and am very proud of the results. It was a surprise for Tommy, and I think he was touched with the sentimentality of it all. I can't wait to start on Clara's baby photobook!
By the way, Tommy's gift to me was a pair of Rollerblades with all the protective gear...so fun!
