Create a Personal Yearbook, Turn a Photo Book into a Memory Book

I have so many childhood memories that I think so fondly of, like my first best friend, my first crush, my favorite teacher, when I won my class spelling bee, and I could go on and on. The one thing they all have in common is… school. So much of our early lives revolves around school.

This is the reason yearbooks are so important, so special. Yet for most kids, the yearbook can only show very small snippets of a school year.

I love that Shutterfly makes it possible to create a more individualized yearbook for each and every child by letting you turn a photo book into a memory book.

A personal yearbook where your child and their close friends are center stage. They have the spotlight and all the wonderful things they did throughout the school year is captured in a personal yearbook that they will have as a keepsake for years and years to come.

A classroom yearbook would make an amazing Teacher’s Appreciation gift, too. As a former teacher, I know I would love it!

I love the idea of doing this for my son and having him help me create it.

  20. Shutterfly sounds like an excellent way to preserve your memories! Although, I grew up in the days where a camera had a roll of film in it, that you had to take to the store to get developed! Therefore, I have a million loose photographs in boxes of my memories!

  33. What a cute idea! I didn’t know that Shutterfly made little “yearbook” books.

  34. I remember how back in my days, yearbooks were made entirely by people’s handwritten contribution and they were certainly much more sentimental in that way.

  35. I love the book idea! No more sticking your photos to a sticky page, under a piece of plastic (called a photo album). The pictures would never get old, never bend, never curl! This would be a great idea!!!

  36. i use that website

    i love it
