Instructions for life

Last Sunday my daughter turned 21 and I knew I wanted to make something special for her. After seeing a list of mini book possibilities from Trish one caught my eye. Instructions for life, I thought how perfect that would be for turning 21!
Sorry for the picture heavy post... I couldn't pick my favorites as there were so many I loved!

At first I wasn't sure if I was going to do a scrapbook or a photo book, but with a limited amount of time I decided to go with a BLURB book. Previously I made one from my blog and loved how it turned out.

I began with a list of quotes I wanted to use that I found on Pinterest and began building my book.
I picked out some of my favorite pictures although they didn't always represent the quote with them.
It was more about using some of my favorite pictures and some great quotes
It went together quite quickly and the shipping was super fast! It's one of her favorite gifts and I'm thrilled with how it turned out!
