Department stores are putting up their holiday decorations which means that it is time start thinking about your holiday gift list! Long ago before kids, I used to have all my Christmas shopping done by Halloween. I always loved hand picking a personal item that would be significant to the recipient. I no longer have the luxury of perusing the shopping aisles for that one perfect gift (impossible with 3 little ones to tote along), but I do have the ability to shop online! I really wanted to get something nice for my mother in law this year. She recently mentioned that she never ordered an album from my wedding 11 years ago. Back in those days digital photography was not all that popular and purchasing a photo photo album through a photographer could be really expensive.
I knew that I wanted to get my mother in law a nice flush mount album, and through my search online I discovered My Photo Creations. They offer a variety of items: professional quality prints, photo calendars, photo books, cards and canvas prints as well as flush mount albums. The Anza album is professional quality, with a leather cover, embossing and thick, lay-flat durable pages. The price starts at $269, which is a fraction of the price you would pay if purchased through a photographer.
Think you can only get a top quality album from a professional photographer? Not anymore. With the Anza, you will have a professional-looking flush mount album you create, for any occasion.

My Experience with My Photo Creations
The first step in creating my flush mount album was to download the site's free software. This was a simple and quick process. After taking a few minutes to orient myself to the software I found that it was very easy to use. Simply choose your album (I chose the 30 page Anza album), load your pictures and let the software do the work by using one of their many templates, or be original and come up with your own design. The design possibilities are really endless. I actually designed all of my own pages and it took very little time. I had recently had all of my wedding photos scanned and simply loaded them onto the computer, chose the images I wanted and placed them on the pages. Easy! In a matter of an hour I had a personally designed album. I went with a simple and clean look, with a pure black background and white frames around my images, but you can choose endless colors and designs to adorn your book.
Once I was finished designing my album, I uploaded to the My Photo Creations site to make my purchase. Once uploaded you can choose to emboss the cover of your album with gold or silver. This is a really nice finishing touch. My album arrived less than a week later securely packed and in a professional black box and inside a fabric sleeve. I love the extra touches that My Photo Creations included to ensure that my album is protected.
Upon opening the album I was so impressed with the thick luxurious cover and professional binding. I think that I was most impressed with the sturdy pages that the images are printed on. This special paper will not rip or tear, and represented my images beautifully with great color and photographic quality.
I know that my mother in law will be thrilled with her new album. I can't wait to give it to her this Christmas! These albums would make a fabulous holiday gift for a loved one. You could design an album with your families most cherished images for a grandparent or spouse. These make great coffee table books and are great conversation starters!
One of our VERY lucky readers will win their own 30 page Anza Flush Mount Photo Album!!!
