Lifephoto.com review and FREE giveaway

A few of my favorite things........

A few weeks ago I decided that I was in need of a new day planner. I wasn't looking for just any day planner, but one that I could design all on my own. I wanted to add my own personal dates, my own personal pictures, and I wanted the option to add my own comments, borders, backgrounds, and such. After a little bit of searching I found Lifephoto.com. It is a fantastic site which is surprisingly very easy to use. I was able to browse through a bunch of different items and I finally found the Day Planner items.

There are 2 sizes to choose from - (mini) 4.4 x 6 or 8 x 11. You may also add the number of picture pages you would like.

I chose the 8 x 11 with 54 picture pages.

After I had selected my item and size, I was able to uploaded pictures very easily by taking the pictures I have saved on my computer and uploading them to the day planner site. I was also able to arrange them as I wanted which was a huge bonus for me because I wanted certain pictures on certain weeks of the year.

I was able to add my own birth dates, special appointments, things I needed to remember to do.
I was able to make my pictures full paged, or if I wanted portrait style, and add words, I could have it that way too.

I have to say I was extremely happy with the whole process of making this planner! I could not believe how easy it was!! Thanks Lifephoto.com for a fantastic product!!
