    My Shutterfly book & Jessica's Birthday!! (List too)

    Hi all, it's a big day! First off I got my Shutterfly book and it's so super cool! I think it took less than a week to get and that's awesome! But the book itself is great work! My only problem was on the cover. And it was my problem not theirs, they tell you that the cover gets wrapped over the edge during binding but I didn't double check the instructions they gave as to how much. Oh well, I think it turned out great anyway.

    Here's the front cover you can see that even with my booboo, it looks faboo!
    (I used Traci Sims Shabby Linens QPs and kit for the cover and first page.)
    Here's the full cover and spine. I put Emma's name on the spine but again didn't read the actual size requirements for the wrap over, so it's a bit big.
    Here's the first page, it's us at the hospital for Emma's birth.
    Now here's a look inside at a couple of the LOs. I've shown all of them on here so I won't bore you with all 38 pages. (It comes standard with 20 pages but I had a lot of pages, and the book was on sale so I figured it evened out in the end.)
    Let's see... on the left I used stuff from Barb (Mrs. Miles)-blue paper, ConnyB.-grass and brown paper, Manu-flowers and myself- red, yellow and orange papers & template No 24.
    On the right I used Manu's- Grungy Scribbles kit, Seebee's Freebies- alpha, Christina Renee- Tab and ribbons and cookie doodles by Barb (Mrs. Miles).

    Just another shot of the book itself, so small I can fit lots of these in the space a normal scrap book fits. The cost when you figure it out to print a bound book like this versus a normal one where you still have to buy the book and sleeves then print the pages is actually cheaper. I think I'm hooked.


    Okay, now then today is my good buddy Jessica's Birthday! So I'm throwing her a little party. I made for you this cute little ricrac party favor, that I stapled flowers onto.
    It's funky and bright just like Jess!
    This little baby is yours, all you have to do is...
    go over to Jessica's blog and wish her a very happy birthday!

    Sorry, this is no longer available.

    Thursday's Freebies:
    Valinda has a pretty all purple QP up.
    Sabine has part 2 of Flowers for My Mother up.
    Mrs. Miles has the next installment of her Heavy Metal kit up.
    Jessica (the birthday girl) has a gift for you, some pretty buttoned flowers.
    Tracy B. has some cool scalloped borders on her blog.
    Lindsay Jane has part 2 of The Outback up.
    Mollie has some killer MOD buckles and ribbons.
    Christine has Grungy Athlete papers up.
    Karla has a cute embellished slide freebie.
    Leah has a new Funky Dot Preschool alpha.
    Bannerwoman has a beautiful QP for her Unconditional kit.
    Manu has a Good Old Days ad-on for you.
    Please remember to leave some love!

    Happy Scrapping!

    My Shutterfly book came in the mail today... woo hoo. I haven't tried the 12x12 yet -- they sent me an offer for a free book if I ordered anything so I got a classic 8.5x11 for s&h cost. My next one I want to create a cover the way you did - it looks great. Thanks for the freebie and the lists! - Lori
