I remember years ago when someone said ‘if your house was on fire what would you save?’ I’d always reply my photograph albums, they contained all my memories, so precious.
These days it’s not such a worry. You don’t even have to save your laptop because you can guarantee your photos and memories are backed up somewhere online.
I do still love photo albums though, I feel there is something so relaxing and enjoyable about creating one. Back in the day (I don’t believe I just said that on my blog!) I would collect my prints form the chemist and come home excitedly to fill an album. I have albums for all of my babies, all of my holidays and special occasions, going back many many years.
Here’s one I made in May 1989. The Little boy is my eldest son and the young pregnant woman is me!
I used to buy quality albums which were often leather bound, they had to stand the test of time, just as this one has for 27 years.
The themed books come with background and places to put your photos, you just have to drag and drop them into place. You can also change background and text, or add your own text. Here is a page about our trip to Hatton Farm.
I’m hoping the cover will keep it safe and it will last as long as my old album.
I’m looking forward to creating my next photo book of my wedding reception photos in November. I’m thinking of a nice leather bound photo book with a window at the front for my first photograph. They start from just £28.95 for a 20 page A5 book.
