Tah Dah !!!

     Some of you may be wondering why I haven't had many blog posts for the past few months.  That is because I edited my daughter's elementary school yearbook.  The committee consisted of me, me and me!  It was a big, but FUN job.  The printed books arrived today, and I couldn't be more thrilled with the results!  We are fortunate at Fairview to have yearbooks printed in full color.  I took photos throughout the year at school events.  (This is how I could justify last spring's Canon Rebel purchase...Oh and I can't forget the various lenses and cute backpack!)  Then I laid out all 56 pages.  I cropped and placed over 550 candid photos of the students and staff.  Oh my!  Actually, the hardest job was sorting through my THOUSANDS of candid photos and dwindling them down to just 550!  I wish I could show you some samples of my work, but I can't display any of the student's photos on-line.  Drats!
     We work with Balfour Publishing.  I have to give a shout out to my fabulous rep, Bryan, and my tech support hero, Patrick.  Thanks guys!  I couldn't have accomplished this without your help!  (By the way, I made the above thank you card for Bryan and Patrick.  Obviously, my design was inspired by the yearbook cover.)  If anyone is in the market for a yearbook publisher, I highly recommend Balfour.  Now I get a couple of months off before I start all over again in the fall!  Until then, I should be able to work on more cards and scrapbooks!
