New little Project and CED

I was told that you could use your Mac to make a book right out of the iPhoto application.

So I did!

It wasn't totally easy but within two days I assembled two books - a hardcover one and a softcover one. I really did this as a test sample for the book I am making for my cousins son - a book or family pictures and recipes - for his upcoming marriage.

So to test the concept, I used alot of my Miss Em pictures and tried the big hardcover version and a smaller softcover version.

Maybe you can see the slide show above - wow - I didn't know I could upload it like this.

After I get the books, if they look decent - I'll be giving one away, with that random drawing thing that everyone is using, let me know if you would like one and I'll put your name in the magic hat.

How exciting!
My son published his first novel using Lulu.com this past year, but he had no photos. Can't wait to hear how the finished product turns out.

I did have a hard time making out the slide show though. Seems the resolution is too low.

I'm trying to put my best of "IF" illustrations in book form using BLURB. I'm having a hard time!

This is great. Too pixelated to make out but I know the drawings so I was smiling anyway!
Please put my name in the magic hat :)

I make photo books each year of my grandkids photos I've taken all year long using MY PUBLISHER and the finsihed books are terrific.
You can use many layout choices with words, without, etc. Check it out.

I'd love to win a MS EM book! Please put my name in as well.Thanks.

Your wedding gift book will be wonderful for the new couple!
