It's been two and half years since we've gone to South Africa.
Do I have all the pictures scrap-booked? No.
Do I have our video onto our hard drive and edited? No.
I finally decided that I need to have something to do so I started weighing my options of getting a photo album together. I could either print close to 300 pictures and traditionally scrapbook them, ala Creative Memories style, or I could look into doing a digital photo book. I had done our honeymoon and our DC trip the traditional way and really thought I would do South Africa in the same manner and it would all be part of our "vacations" album.
But...that's a lot of pictures, and time, and money. So I did my research and decided I would use InDesign to create my page layouts and then upload them to a site called Blurb.com. Then they would take my design and create a hardbound 10"x8" book.
Doing it this way allows me a little bit more creative freedom. I can have pictures be the background and write little text stories, I can zoom in on pictures, and size the pictures exactly how I want them.
