Shutterfly Book

Crocheting Bobo Bunny and Evie Bunny for my grandchildren provided the creative inspiration I needed to make another Shutterfly Book. I really had fun with this one.

My Mom willingly participated posing for photos bringing the Bunnies to life in a story called "Bunny Buddies' Travel Tale". It is the fourth fifth in a series of books I've created using Shutterfly. I love creating these memory books for our grandchildren.
This book follows the same story line and uses most of the photos shared in my last post, but eliminates some of the detail to make it more interesting for kids. You can see how it turned out here. It is nice to be able to share it electronically but I still prefer getting a real book because text formatting messes up in on-line shared views. 

Probably the best part about ordering Photobooks through Shutterfly is the price. If you're patient, Shutterfly regularly provides discount coupons. I ordered two copies of this book for $14 total, saving $44 using 1FREEBOOK coupons. I am paying for shipping and tax only on this order. 

In case you're wondering, I am not particularly patient but I was lucky to receive these coupons when I needed them. 

A printed hardcover book will be delivered to my daughter in Boulder next week. I'll have to wait until they visit in June to get my copy as I'm too cheap to pay extra unspecified costs for delivery to Canada. 

If you're from the US or can have your orders delivered to the US, I would highly recommend Shutterfly as an easy-to-use, versatile and affordable option to to make your own Photo books. 

When I got home, I added my daughter's book "The Alphabet Song" to my collection and realized I made a mistake. It looks like I will have 2-4's in my series. Oh well, it wouldn't be truly mine if it was perfect. I seem to have a knack for missing at least one error every time. I corrected the on-line copy which can be viewed here.
