Remembering a Year

In this post last year, I talked about my way of remembering the year before - a small photo book chronicling the year's events - both big and small.  My 2008 book is something I love looking through from time to time, and I want to keep making one each year.

Nothing groundbreaking to show here, but here are a few of the layouts in my 2009 book:

Instead of using stock backgrounds, I used only pictures I had taken myself as backgrounds.  I find myself taking so many photos of scenery, landscapes, etc - and this is a great way to use them!

I'm using Picaboo for the book (to be consistent with last year's), I always use Picasa to organize and edit photos, and I used Scrapblog to make the cover image.  Overall, a very easy way to wrap up the year (in total, it's about 30 pages).

One of the best things about making these books: when going through my zillions of photos to find the ones to stick in the book, I'm reminded of all the great things we did through the year, and I have a chance to really reflect on what a great life I have.


  1. What a great idea! My favorite part is the backgrounds you chose!

  2. First time seeing the photos for 09 not bad.
