Our Life Book

The agency we are using uses Life Books to match birth moms with families. The adoptive family creates a scrapbook, or "Life Book" telling about themselves, and this is what the birth mothers look through to choose a family. Our agency has everyone print their books through Shutterfly so they will be along the same lines. I designed my pages using a variety of digital scrapbooking kits & templates (primarily from Scrapmatters) and really enjoyed the process. I ordered our book as a 12x12 hardback, and the quality was excellent. Here is a picture of the actual book:

And here are a few of the pages in the book:

    Never Lose Faith
