SmileBooks Review!!

SmileBooks is a fantastic company where you can personally design your own album/scrapbook!  They most graciously gave me a $100 coupon code for a review.  There are two ways to create a SmileBook- download a program and design your own or SmileBooks will kindly do it for you with your approval!
The back:)

I designed my own 74 page 8x6 Compact hard cover SmileBook.  It took me a long time to design the photo book (hours to be exact:), but I'm so glad I put the time into it.  When it arrived, I was not expecting an actual book, but rather more of a scrapbook.  What a pleasant surprise!  For the cover, I picked a light blue with the text "Our Family" in brown font.  On the right side, I put a picture of my parents at the top  and one of each of the children underneath.  To the left of that there is a photo of a gorgeous waterfall I took last summer.  I am totally amazed at all the different selections SmileBook provides!  To decorate the book, I added a cute arrangement of clip art, frames and colorful lettering.  SmileBooks also has many bright backgrounds that feature a variety of designs.  Here's the best part, you can as many photos as you like for one page!!  The photos are clear, bright, and you can position them however you like.  All in all, I am extremely pleased with the photo book and with their friendly service.  SmileBooks are wonderful presents and treasured keepsakes that will last a lifetime!
