Hi! I am making some things for my girlfriends daughter for her upcoming birthday for their trip. I am working on a journal book and have never done one for my own kids ( i will this trip ) so i have a few questions.
I really like natalie's 2010 journal pages and i am thinking of uploading them to shutterfly, etc and have it printed like that. I have read thru most of the threads to get ideas, tips. I typically use shutterfly but they don't have a 8x11 portrait (only landscape) - i did see winkflash does, so i may use that site.
those of you that have made books - did you upload them to sites and do it that way or did you print your own? i also love dolly's word doc with all the pages together that is wonderful too. Also, did you use all the pages, that would be a BIG book? any tips of advice anyone has would be so much appreciated. I just want to make her a great book for her to write down her memories. thanks so much for your help and advice!!

I printed one for my son with winkflash.. I have only good things to say about it.. It took maybe a week to get here and it looks fantastic.. I really can't get over how well it came out. It is 8x11 portrait.. I really look forward to ordering more things from them. If i knew how to post pictures I would they are really nice..

You can not post pictures directly to a post. Here is what you can do to show off your great t-shirts and items that you made:

Get a free photobucket account at www.photobucket.com.
Then upload your pictures to there.
Once they are uploaded click on the "share" button just above the picture.
Then click on the "get link code" button.
Finally, click once on the IMG code then righT click to copy and paste it into this thread.
Then your pictures will show up when you want to post them.

I made my boys journals for our trip in August. I used Natalie's pages. I uploaded them to Winkflash and had them printed as an 8 x 11 portait book. They were the only place I could find that printed portrait books. They came great. The kids loved them. I would definately reccommend using them. Here are some photos of the inside pages:

I think I put about about 30 pages in each book. I picked a general page for each park, their favorite rides, and then other misc. stuff like Club Cool, pin trading, etc. I love how they turned out.
