For this mini album I used a digital scrapbooking website called "smilebox" to put the pictures together. In case you haven't heard. This program is great! Especially, if you don't have any time for scrapbooking, but lots of pictures to organize into pretty pages. Smilebox has digital layouts already put together. All you have to do is choose which theme/holiday/event you want and start dragging pictures in the slots given. It is free, however, you could choose to upgrade to get more layouts to choose from.
When you're done putting pictures in- it'll ask if you want to save it, print it or send it to a store to print for you. You can even share the pictures in facebook. I usually just print it right then. With this mini, I cutted out the 8 X 10 pictures and glued it on chipboards to make it more sturdy. Hole punched the sides - add ribbons and viola! Done!
