Cuba to print

Kay, a 50%-off-12x12-photobook coupon came from Shutterfly, so I ordered my book this morning. Yippee!!! Shutterfly has finally improved their books: you can now make the text and titles look much more professional, and change the size of the photos and location of such, which will also make the books look so much more polished. They made the change the week AFTER I spent an entire scrapbooking retreat assembling this book, so I'm looking forward to enjoying the improvements with my NEXT book. Sadly, they have discontinued their Creating Keepsakes designer books. I'm just SO glad that I did up a CK book for my mother-in-law's 70th birthday before they were gone! Here's the final version of the Cuba book:

And here are the top 9 contenders for a 16x20" canvas to go in my living room. I was enamored with the soft pinks and greens until I ran a cross-processing action on "photo 1" and fell in love with that one; it looks watery in the background.

These are great but I already told you that. Spring is finally here just in time for Summer. ;-)

Awesome looking book! I quite like the "verb with me" phrases throughout. I'm tucking that away to copy someday.

I hadn't noticed that Shutterfly discontinued the CK books. I did note the new changes to let us better customize our pages. I just finished one for somebody and was rather pleased with how easy the whole process was.

And the living room canvas: I vote for Photo 1. It's so captivating and of the 9 it's the one I kept returning to.
