Just a Quote for Friday - the book.

A gift for my grandma.

If you're a regular reader around these parts, you know I do a Friday feature where I post a quote and a photo {Just a Quote for Friday}. 99.9% of the time, the photo is one that I've taken.


Every year I'm challenged with what to send my grandmother for Christmas. She's 91, folks. It's hard. This year I decided to give her a little book containing some of my favorite photos and quotes from this past year, and I just couldn't be happier with the way it turned out. {For this one I used Shutterfly and was quite pleased with the quality.}


I added the yellow ribbon - and I ended up ordering a few extras to give as gifts to other people...and one for me to keep. Since Grandma doesn't read my blog, this will be a brand new set of photos she's never seen before. I'm not sure she'll understand that I've "blogged" each of these, but that's ok.


I know her sentence will start with, "That Debbie..." when she opens it.
And that's all I need to know.
:o)

What a brill idea...love it...I have done a photo album with all the shots from the photo shoot of the kids a few months ago for their granny...I am thinking that the photo and quote on a Friday is also another brill idea that I may pinch for next year(if you don't mind?)...
