Embracing The Change

Personalized Family Stories




I got this random idea when my son was about a year old. I thought it would be cool and something special for him to have growing up and then he could keep it as a keepsake when he was older. It’s sort of like a scrapbook but it tells a story. We have used it as a bedtime story at times as well. He really liked it. Then when we had our daughter, I couldn’t leave her out to dry, so I made one for her as well.

I used Shutterfly, to make these and they do get pricey the more pages you have. I was lucky enough to find online coupon codes and take advantage of some of their promotions. The books I chose are the 12×12 hardcover photo books. All of my left hand pages are the words and the right hand pages are the pictures.
