Europe Photo Book Completed !

My photo/ scrapbook from our European vacation.:
It took me over a year to complete this photo book.  I used to purchase albums, paper, stickers, and all of the other paraphernalia that goes along with scrapbooking but the cost had become overwhelming.  I decided to do digital scrapbooking and started researching publishing companies. Mixbook had the best reviews and what I thought was the most professional looking finished product.
 That was several books ago and I just got in my newest book in the mail yesterday.  I am beyond thrilled.
I have one wedding book and the others are travel books.  These books make the perfect gift and I’m currently working on a wedding album for my nephew and niece.
The books will hold up to  300 pages.  My Europe book has 261 pages so that gives you an idea of how thick a book they can create.  Most of my books are only be around 50 pages.
If  you print your photos for scrapbooking, you know how expensive it can be. My local Walmart charges $2.84 for an 8×10 so multiply that by 261.  With sales tax, the cost would be $811.66.  I can have a professional looking, hardback, bound book for a fraction of that so it is such a cost effective way to go.

Carthage, Tunisia ~ Punic and Roman Ruins

Carthage, Tunisia  ~ Punic and Roman Ruins

Carthage is a suburb of  Tunis, Tunisia,  situated at the site of the ancient capital of the Carthaginian empire.  It was little more than an agricultural village for nine hundred years until the middle of the 20th century; since then it has grown rapidly as an upscale coastal suburb.

 I snapped this pictures as we drove by.  I loved the wooly coats on the sheep and the thick coat on the person holding the sheep.  It wasn’t that cold outside (around 60) but hey, I’m from Arkansas and 60 degrees the first of March is considered warm.

Sidi Bou Said, Africa (سيدي بو سعيد‎)

Sidi Bou Said, Africa

Sidi Bou Said, Africa  was one of the places I was the most excited to see.  Having looked at numerous photos and read many articles, I wanted to see this quaint white washed town with accents of blue.  We only had the chance to see a very small portion of the town because we were forced to go to a store that sold perfume and that is the only place we were allowed to go.  I took these photos on the walk from the bus to the shop and through the tour bus windows.

Sidi Bou Said, Africa

Like most of the countries we visited around the Mediterranean, there were orange trees lining the sidewalks.
