It's amazing what you can do with a computer. This very unique and fun! (I must say as a 47 year old mother, I like the after much better.)

I think that is so neat how that looks. Does it take a lot of time to put one of these slide shows together?

marmee said...

grace p, thanks for coming by to visit "things i love."
it is a lot of fun to make these and they are not hard. jess is my youngest son of three boys and three girls, he is a very nice young man so before or after doesn't matter to me, i do like the focus the after brings to his kind eyes.

no susie it really doesn't take long. choosing which look you like for what pictures takes the longest. but once you have decided on that you just upload the photos and write your own text, preview, make any changes you want and voila post it where ever you like. i make them and send them in emails for my mom and daughters, too.

Hi Marmee.......it is a lovely way to show those you love.....The pages are beautifully put together....

By the way I meant to ask last time I popped over....Mr P has fallen in love with the singer on your blog....could you tell me who she is please?

marmee said...

cheryl, thank you for your words of sweet compliments, i appreciate them so much.
they are several singers on my blog at the moment, fiest, enya, and my brightest diamond. you should be able to google any of them or on my side bar you can click on the playlist. they can be a little frustrating to use..the playlist. glad mr p like them.

That really is neat. I'm a scrapbooker too, I might play around a little there.

marnie,
they are fun and fairly easy. my boys don't let me take a lot of pictures anymore so it was fun to put together something for them.

i glad you looked back a bit since all my posts are very different.
i am delighted that you..."loved every minute of it"...that makes my heart glad. you are welcomed here anytime.

marmee said...

rissa, i had those pictures from a few weekends ago just before i cut jess's hair. i just like the before and after sitting right next to each other. they are relucant photo subjects these days so having them at play was nice.

marmee said...

thank you meems, i definitely have boyish boys. they hardly let me take any photos these days/so having some recent photos to work with is fun. whereas, abbey is a very willing participant. lol
i am working on b-day plans right now for her on friday.
