This year for Father's Day, I wanted to get my wonderful husband something more special than your run of the mill greeting card. After all, he is a fantastic father...He changes diapers without being asked, he makes bottles, he kisses boo-boos and he loves his children above all else. He really goes above and beyond for all 3 of our kids, and I wanted to let him know just how important he is to us. I thank God every day that I have him in my life, and I feel incredibly lucky that he is the father of my children. He even views my oldest, who is not biologically his, as his own child. He never says "my step-son"....Only "my son." That counts for a lot as far as I'm concerned, and it means the world to my 11 year old as well.
When I got the opportunity to review Mixbook, an online digital scrapbook service, I knew immediately that I wanted to create a special book for my husband, the most important man in my life, for Father's Day. And lo and behold, Mixbook even had an easy to use template specifically for the occasion! Easy as pie!
Mixbook is very user friendly, too! Once you select your theme or template, you simply upload photos and then drag and drop them into the provided slots on the pre-loaded pages. You can then crop and reposition them to your liking. I love the fun designs that Mixbook has to offer, too. There is something available for literally every occasion, and you can easily and seamlessly create a scrapbook that your family will treasure for years to come. The scrapbook like feel to these photo books is a huge bonus as far as I am concerned. I love the look of scrapbooks but am not overly crafty, so I have never attempted to create one on my own.
Mixbook also has wonderful, personal touches incorporated into their photo books, such as heartwarming quotes, beautiful themed layouts, as well as the ability to customize your book with captions of your choosing!
I had a great time creating my Father's Day themed scrapbook from Mixbook, and once it arrived, I couldn't have been more pleased with the results. I received an 8 by 6 Landscape Softcover photo book for review, and it was well made, very detailed, and my photos look wonderful in this little book! It's also the perfect size for the recipient to take with them and use as a "brag book". Knowing my husband, he will do just that, as he loves bragging to anyone who will listen how great our kids are. He is definitely a proud father, and this is reflected within the pages of my Mixbook.
Here are some photos of my Mixbook. I apologize for the odd coloring. My camera is on its last legs, and isn't working quite right lately. Plus, since this book is going to be a surprise, I had to wait until everyone was asleep and sneak off to take pictures. I will try and take some more in natural daylight, as I am not at all happy with the way they turned out. I couldn't use the flash, because it created an awful glare. So these photos look yellowish when the book is not yellow at all. This is due to the lighting in my home at night. These photos do not do this book justice! I will replace them ASAP.
***Update: Here are some daylight photos that are not discolored!

Don't you want a Mixbook of your own now? I know I would love to have more of these little gems to give as gifts as well as to keep to pass down to my children as they get older. Mixbook is a wonderfully simple to use, fun project that you could even include the children in creating! They offer a wide range of themes, sizes, and also have a hardcover option available for added durability. Looking for photo cards or calendars? Mixbook has you covered there, too!
