Creating a Birthday Keepsake

Creating a Birthday Keepsake
One of my dearest friends turned 30 this year. Usually we just get together and go out for a simple dinner to celebrate, but this year I wanted to surprise her with a little something. I used the My Memories Digital Scrapbook Software and created her a Birthday Keepsake that included information about the year she was born (Source for information: Pearson, Steve. "What Happened in 1981 Inc. Pop Culture, Prices and Events." The People History. 18 June 2006. Web. 27 Dec. 2011. <http://www.thepeoplehistory.com/1981.html>). You can easily create baby keepsakes for your children as well (I omitted the birth weight, hospital, etc. for I wanted to make it more for an adult than a child).

It was very simple to create:
  1. Chose the size you would like to work with using the custom size option. For instance, 8"x10".
  2. Select a background paper -or- quick page and elements that you would like to work with.
  3. Research items about the specific year. You can also look up the meaning of their name and birth sign.
  4. Insert a photo of the individual (mine was blurred to respect the privacy of my friend).
  5. Insert Word art for their name and change the design until you are satisfied.
  6. Insert Text and type in your information.
  7. Select "Share Album" and export image as JPEG.
  8. Send to be printed at your local photo retail store.
