It's Not Peek-a-boo {It's Picaboo}

 A new phase of our life is getting ready to take place as my oldest son graduates from homeschool this fall. While it is an exciting time, it has also been very emotional as we think about everything that has taken place over the last 18 years.
My husband thought it would be fun to create a book to document our son’s first 18 years by putting together a picture book for him.
We discovered Picaboo through a promotion that they were having during the month of August and decided to give it a try.
The program was very easy to download and navigate through. The only draw back is that my son was born before digital photographs were common place. I decided to take a digital photo of the pictures that I wanted to use in this book. I was a little concerned about the print quality of the pictures but we would have to wait to see how they would look in the book. 
The Picaboo program had lots of themes to choose from but we decided that a plain background would suite the needs and look of this book best. Also included are numerous templates that can also be altered to meet the specific need of the page layout. Now that was a pretty cool feature!
Once we had uploaded all of the pictures and added the text we were given the option to move pages around and preview how the book would look printed. When we were satisfied we used the easy check out system and the wait began. We didn’t have to wait long though – only about a week and a half! That was a quick turn around.
We were all so very pleased with the book cover and binding not to mention the inside pages. Those pictures of pictures that we included in this book? You can barely tell a difference from the more recent digital pictures that we included later in the book.
Each of us were very impressed with the look and quality of this book. My son now has a keepsake that he can cherish for years to come!
Thank you Picaboo for a wonderful digital picture book experience. I will definitely making more in the future!
