I've made a few books as gifts that chronical someone's life. I found it easiest to do themed pages: The person as an infant/child
Role as mother - pics of and or with children
Role as child - pics of and with parents
Role as sibling
Special holiday pics
I have a page of my sister with all of her hair styles through the past 50 years.
Page of and/or with friends
Homes lived in
take a couple of days going through layouts in the gallery on this site. Save favorites. It's a GREAT way to learn.
Have fun! No matter how you make the book, it's going to be VERY special!
