American Greetings PhotoWorks Blog Tour! {A Winey Mommy Review}

Since becoming a mom one of the most important things to me is capturing the moment. Whether it's a special occasion, a vacation or just here at home I want to remember that moment forever. I bought myself a Nikon 2 years ago and I love it. The only problem is that I don't always get every photo printed out and framed. I mean well, but sometimes I just plain forget.

When I was offered to review an American Greetings PhotoWorks Studio Book that was baby themed, I was ecstatic. I jumped at the chance and started working on my book right away. The site is so easy to navigate. I found the baby book section and started hunting down for the perfect choice. I decided to make one for Madelyn {and I plan on creating one for Isabella soon, too} and picked out this one:

One of my favorite pictures of Maddie

It took me approximately one hour from start to finish. I had a hard time finding pictures to use! If you are interested in buying one I suggest keeping a folder of your favorite pictures. That definitely would have sped up my speed--which is my own fault! The PhotoWorks site is set up perfectly and just how I like business sites to be set up--everything is self explainable and detailed. You're not just thrown in to create your photo book...they actually walk you through each step. There are spots for you to personalize your book--including the front/back cover and spine. There are pages that you can personalize as well.

I loved my experience with PhotoWorks and their new Studio Books I have already told my mom about it and how happy I am with how it all came out. I recommend their site to anyone who wants to create something special to keep your memories alive. These would make excellent books for grandparents on their birthday, Mother's Day, Father's Day or holidays.

Thank you to Mom Central and American Greetings PhotoWorks for allowing me to order my book for Madelyn--I love it and will keep it up on the shelves in my home to show our loved ones. It's so special!

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of American Greetings PhotoWorks and received a free photo book to facilitate my review.
