Smilebooks Review and Giveaway!

 Gift Guide Post #44

Greetings Neighbors!

I love seeing you out At the Fence, and I am truly enjoying sharing products in the Gift Guide.  I have been so impressed with the companies that are participating!  We have had some really good gift ideas the past few weeks.  And now I have another one!  Smilebooks!  I was able to create a customized photo book.  I chose to do one for my two younger daughters!  My M and Ms!  SmileBooks is really easy to work with!  First you choose the size and if you want soft cover or hard cover.  You can also choose a theme, like Travel, Family, Occasions, or Hobbies.  Next you upload your photos, and choose how many pages you want.  Then start designing!

Place the pictures you want on each page.  You can also add text.  I personally had fun adding clip art.  It did take some time to upload my photos, and decide which ones I wanted where, but that is all part of the fun!  I kept changing the background, and then adding and removing pictures, until I had exactly what I wanted.  When you are finished, you should preview, and make sure you have everything where you want it.  Then you place your order and wait for it to arrive!

I was going to hold it for a gift, but after my husband saw it, he wanted to share it, so we did.  Photo books make a really great gift idea.  You can center on a certain event, a certain family member, like grandparents, or a new baby, a trip or vacation, whatever you come up with.  I can think of alot of people who would love to receive one of these!

And SmileBooks has other gift ideas like prints, posters, greeting cards and calendars.  Be sure to stop by as you are choosing gifts for everyone on your list.  And they are offering a special code for 30% off. Just enter the code: ATF30SB

SmileBooks is going to give the winner of this giveaway an 11 x 8 Classic Book.
