Get Those Fab Pics Off Your Phone and Share Them

How many fab photos do you have on your phone?  50?  100?  200+?

Time to release the pics from the imprisonment of your phone.  

Has your phone replaced your camera?  I used to lug my camera with me all the time but now I find myself using my cell phone to capture those can't miss moments.  Sharing pics on social media or via text is great but some of those pics are so fab they're worthy of something more special.  Those are the pics I use as greeting cards, calendars, and photo books.  



Recently, I checked out Collage.com and created photo books using pics from the twins' first homecoming dance and a trip with my parents to Virginia.  Check out this cover I created using magnified images of my eldest son's tie, his date's corsage and the tulle from her dress.  I added a title using their school colors and gifted it to the mother of my son's date.  
Personalized gifts like photo books are the perfect gift for the person who has everything.  Every Christmas I am challenged with finding the perfect gift for my mom's husband.  However, I always deliver one of a kind, truly unique, personalized gift which never fails to surprise.  One year it was personalized beer glasses, another year I surprised them with a brag book full of pics of all the grandkids and this year I gave them a tabletop photo book of their trip to Virginia.  

We took a ferry over to historical Smithfield, Virginia, strolled down Main St., dined at The Taste of Smithfield and visited the Smithfield Museum where we viewed the world's oldest ham and the largest ham among things.  A sight to see for this ham lover!  Plus we toured the historic city taking pics of all the "Piggies of Smithfield".  

Collage.com is just one of many websites I've used to create tangible items for my family and friends of those special moments in our lives.  Whether it's vacation memories, baby showers, trips to the park or the zoo, it's nice to have actual pictures to share.  Uploading pics from my cell phone or email takes just a couple of minutes and I can add text, frame pics, resize and edit to my liking.  

I love visiting my mom's home and seeing her photo book proudly displayed on her coffee table.  It's a wonderful topic of conversation and even at my age I love hearing her boasts "My daughter made this."
