It also meant that someone had to put the Memory Book together. I really didn't think I would have time to do it (especially by myself) and so I enlisted help from others in the church. Three women volunteered and we had a great night putting the book together.
Initially, it was supposed to just be a matter of sliding photos and cards into a semi-traditional photo album with plastic slots. However, I couldn't find one big enough, so we made a "simple" scrapbook.
Side note: I bought the album today at Michael's and they were having a "Buy One Album, Get the Other for 1 Cent" event! I've never ever seen an album so cheap before :) It was amazing!!!
In under 3 and a 1/2 hours, the four of us had created 32 pages for the Memory Book! We just need to remove the stock photo on the front and put in a picture of the whole congregation (taken at the church picnic in June).
I am super happy with the way it turned out! We were even able to add embellishments and everything looks really coordinated. Thanks to the ladies that made this possible!
