A super photo book deal!

I love making photo books for my kids of their adventures  - and they looove looking at books with pictures of themselves! So I was thrilled to find a deal on photo books at Artscow. I'd never heard of this site before, but I just created a book and placed my order and I'm so excited to see the result!

The difference with this site from ones I've used before (I've tried Shutterfly, Kulapix, and WalMart's photo book services) is that it makes it super easy to do a digital scrapbook style book, with loads of free "kits" that have full book layouts as well as all the patterns and embellishments you could desire. It's completely customizable with a drag and drop interface for both the layouts and your photos.

I found there was a bit of a learning curve (and you do need to install Microsoft's Silverlight if you don't already have it - also free, and available right there on the site from the Create page, it prompts you to install it), but overall I enjoyed the process. And you can't beat this deal:

a 99 cent photo book, including shipping!!
Use coupon code Z099BOOKK47EG 

(My order came to $1.07 Canadian) This includes 6x6" and 7x5" photo books. AWESOME. And great Christmas presents!! Go get one!

Expires Dec. 31, 2013 and limited to the first 20,000 orders. One per household.
