I now have 5 out of 6 vacation memory keeping steps complete! Technically I think it’s 5.5 steps because I have half of step 6 (careful storage of mementos) complete.
I create a photobook for each vacation before I work on the scrapbook. I discussed all the reasons why when I got back from Egypt last year, see the post on that here.
Same drill as last time, this is a 5×7″ photobook from MyPublisher. Their software has gotten even better since last year and they make everything so easy.
I always start the book with a statement picture – this time it was the red lanterns on Gui Jie (Ghost Street).
I put text on each page where I started a new city but left the rest text-free.
Then I made lots and lots of pages. This book is about 60 pages. MyPublisher’s standard pages are very thick and high quality.
On the last page, I used a grid of pictures from everywhere on the trip, plus the cool “End” sign.
On the back cover, I put a picture of us. I decided to make it a “thing” to put us on the back since I did the same with our Egypt Photobook.
Again, I’m really pleased with the quality and MyPublisher isn’t paying me to do an advertisement here. When the book arrived at my office, my coworkers were very impressed with the quality and how good the pictures look when they’re printed and bound.
