A long, long, looooong time ago, when I was paper scrapping, I got the idea to make little brag books for the grandmas using all those leftover school photos. I never did finish them. Well, I thought I'd try to do something similar as a presentation...

Here's what I did with some of those school photos I have of my son Andrew (at least up to 8th grade!) I know many of you have ton of school photos (some good, some bad lol). But when do you ever look at them?

Instead of a traditional scrapbook or brag book, I made a simple presentation using Presentation Digital Scrapbook 1-2-3: Bookshelf, just adding my photos and some text. I created the pages in Powerpoint, then imported them into Windows Movie Maker (free program that I've been using for years) and added the music. It was fun and easy!

It was so fun to put them together and watch him grow up.

I loved this! The music you picked was perfect for it. I'm going to do some like it for my kids. (Thinking about Christmas presents!)

Love it! I'm going to have to look into importing into Windows Movie maker. I love the way this turned out!

I agree that the music is perfect for this presentation and I loved seeing it. Now I'm thinking about all the possibilities for presentations I can do and school photos is definitely on the list! TFS
