Old Photos in My Inbox Make Me Happy

If there was a job that was simply "look through old photos, mess around with them in Photoshop, and make things like books out of the photos" I would be a bazillionaire. Because I am industrious when it comes to that stuff. I don't want to give away all of our secret wedding surprises, but what the heck...

For our wedding guest book I wanted to incorporate all of our guests, you know, the ones the book is named after. So I have asked all of our invitees to email us a few old school pics of us and them which I am going to Blurb (or use some other fantastical photobook generator) into a fantastical book! I also secretly am using this tactic to get as many cute pics of my fiance as possible, since I haven't seen that many of him as a kid (before the age of 14 when we met anyhow... awe!).

I didn't, however, really realize the burden of this little project would fall directly on the moms, but so far the only responses to my request for pictures have been, "I'm sure your mom has a good one of us somewhere" ;) That's ok... She does. And so does my Future Mother in Law. And so does my awesome Stepmom who took the project on in full-force and has started scanning old photo albums in their entirety and emailing them to me! YES.

How cute is my family?! OLD SCHOOL!

Thanks Shells ;)

I know this project is kind of asking a lot from our guests but I am so stoked about it. It will get finished in the long run I know, I was just hoping I could get it done in a shorter run.

Hmmmmm....I notice you didn't post the picture of you when you were probably about 4 or 5 years old and astride your noble rocking horse -- stark naked!! Except for a lacy white superheroine cape--even the bride back then, huh? ;-)
Or, did I not send that one to you???

Totally didn't send it! I want my Shera picture!
