April Hussar summer

My family and I had one of those magical summers in 2011. We went on an amazing trip, played at the pool and the beach, spent time with family and friends, and built a tree house. I’d love to surprise my husband and daughter with a book filled with all those incredible, sweet memories.

Nalissa Cuthbert, contributer:

My photo book for 2011 would include pictures of my immediate family and me over the past summer. When I went to visit them in Florida we had an amazing time, and I was able to be with my sister from the last months of her pregnancy right up to the birth of my nephew. I would hold on to the book and give it to him in a few years so he can see what his crazy family was up to before he was born!

Diana Denza, contributer:

My 2011 photo book would include pictures of some of my closest friends and me having a blast in New York City. I would send it off to my two twin sisters (who are studying in colleges down in Florida) so they can get a look at their big sister’s adventures in the Big Apple! Who knows? Maybe it will inspire a week of sisterly bonding in NYC. Miss you, Sue and Stef!

Lucia Peters, associate editor:

Lucia Peters

I’m no photographer, but I do like to collect memories—especially memories of adventures I’ve been on. Over the past two and a half years, my boyfriend has become my adventure buddy and partner in crime. I would write to him … Remember running around Disneyland in the pouring rain? Or finding our first geocache together? Or getting lost in a corn maze? Because I sure do. This photo book’s for you!

And now .. THE GIVEAWAY!

To recap: One lucky reader will win:

*One Canon PowerShot S100 high-end digital camera (Retail value: $429.99)


*One Shutterfly Prize pack:  50 Cards, 12×12 Photo Book, 8×8 Photo Book,  Mug, 3 Calendars, Reusable Shopping Tote & Ornament (Total ARV $298.42)

    I really love the black & White Backdrop Album. This one seems to work for everything, whether it be the girls, the guys, kids, pets, scenery, black & white photos, whatever. It’s not too girly or boyish and can work with any photo. I can think of 4 different huge albums that I have that would work with this color scheme. Very nice!

So I would like to do one about her time in the NICU and her first year. Scrapbooks are good but I would love to have one of the hardcover photo books of memories from that time.

  86. krazyktex says:

    Time flies by so fast. Suddenly I am 63 and have 8 grandkids and three great grandkids. I would definitely do a customer template about my life and years past to the present, with plenty of pictures of the whole family and our history together to leave behind. Memories do become dim but a book would help some of our history live forever.
