Giveaway: Mixbook Photo Book ($45 value)

If you missed the first part of my review regarding the process of creating a photobook using MixBook, please read it so this post makes more sense :p

From my previous post:  “So what book am I working on now?  Well, my mom’s birthday is coming up in August and I thought it would be a great perfect gift to gather pictures of my nephews and nieces and my kids and create a memory book for her!  Can you imagine the surprise she will get when she receives this book containing pictures of her 12 grandkids in the mail?  (we live in two different states).”

It wasn’t easy trying to get all the pictures together, scanning old picture (pre-digital era) and getting them from my sisters who are in Florida to create this book  for my mom’s birthday.  But we did it!  YAY!!!  I placed the order not too long ago and I picked regular shipping, to my surprise the book was printed and shipped and on my door steps in just a few days.  When I opened the box this little memorabilia came in, I was so amazed at the quality of the book inside and out.  It is a hard cover book, which makes it even prettier and the fact that MixBook allows you to customize the cover makes it ever more personable.  I think this is really the best photo book I’ve ever made because of the high print quality, the ease of use to create it and the time it took to put together, plus the promptness in shipping that I have ever had.  Again, the creating of the book was super easy, compared to other companies I have used in the past I really love the Scrapbook feel I got from the program on their website used to create the books.  To say the least, I am really impressed and will be using them for my family’s printing needs!

I wanted to post the book on here but couldn’t.  Wordpress can’t support MixBook’s Flash videos, I posted the photo book on my blog (on blogger) in case you are interested in seeing it. :)
