create an amazing ABC book

Today we have an adorable idea for a one year party guest book! Chris of Chris Cornwell Photography shares, "When I was planning my baby boy's first birthday party, I knew I wanted something different for guests to sign in. I've had the ABC Book templates for a while and have used several elements from it but the opportunity finally came along to use it almost entirely. I created an album showcasing monthly photos of him from newborn to his first year. I left the '1st year' box blank to add a photo later and also a couple of blank pages to insert party pictures. Because it's a guest book, I created a couple of pages of just letters for guests to 'describe' him with the corresponding letter and also write in a message. It was great to see how he's grown in this album. Everyone loved it!! The template is simple to use and perfect for a baby or child. Guests loved thumbing through pages.. seeing how he has grown/ changed. We still can't believe he is one!"

Thanks so much for sharing Chris! Enjoy your $75 gift certificate to the shop!

The iPhone camera is an incredibly powerful tool. After learning a few basics, you can start practicing your own skills with what I like to call a “creative exercise régime.” First of all, l always hold my phone horizontally with two hands. I form a "C" with my left thumb and forefinger and tuck the phone into it so it rests on my hand with my middle finger holding it up along the back. Then with my right hand I form a similar backwards C with the phone against the palm of my hand and use my right thumb to take the picture. By having a steady hold on the phone, I eliminate shake. The result is a sharper image.

The trip fell during the first few days of spring, and we all dreamed of warmer weather and a nice change of scenery! Our trip started on a Friday and ended the following Monday, but despite it’s brevity, it was an amazing experience!
