Surprise for me, surprise for you :-)

Actually, I didn´t intend to post again today, but as it happened, the wedding album I orderd about 3 weeks ago did just arrive, and I couldn´t stop myself from sharing my collection with you:

There are still two books missing on the picture, because I gave them to an aunt who´s learning how to digiscrap, and she wanted some inspiration.
I started printing photobooks 3 years ago, and my goal is to make one book a year for each one of my 4 kids (well, I only succeeded with that plan for the girl´s books, the boys still have to wait...), and I´m making books to capture our vacations, too. Until now, I got them printed at Fotobuch, that´s a german printer, and I´ve always been content with them. For our wedding book, I used Artscow, as they offered the 12x12 size, which is, as far as I know, not available in Germany. This is how the book looks from inside:

I was a little too cautious with the bleed area, so now I have a thin white strip on every page, but apart from that, it turned out lovely - and you live, you learn.

So that was the surprise for me... now onto the surprise for you, which is a new template:

I thought this was a neat idea for p365, as I´m doing laundry really every day, and I had lots of fun drawing those baskets. They look cool when you fill them with a neutral beige or cream paper, but I guess, everything else will be fine, too.

Due to these rumours about viruses being spread via 4shared, I decided to change from 4shared to box.net. I haven´t experienced anything bad with 4shared so far, but better save than sorry. So, go to your save box.net download
here

Oh, and when will I get to see a layout with my stuff? I´m excited to see what all you people from literally everywhere on the planet do with my stuff :-)

Thanks for the cute layout. Also, thanks for using box.net. I got some terrible viruses using 4shared, wound up costing me almost $200 to get the laptop fixed as I know nothing other than run virus scanner and following directions. The viruses were horrible.

I wanted to comment on your photobooks. I'm a consultant for a company called Heritage Makers, you should take a peak, we're much better quality and much more fun than most others out there. My website is: www.storiesfromyourpast.com
