Who says size does matter? It didn't in my case. I made my mother's day special with this compilation of photos I took of the family. Thinking of a cute gift? The answer is just in the palm of your hands.
We just celebrated mothers day this weekend. I want to share with you how I made my Mom feel extra special by giving her this mini photo album that I personalized for her. She was surprised at first of how unique and little the book was. She smiled as she flipped the pages of our favorite photos that reminded her of all the places we had been. The best part of it all is it can be put anywhere. She was undecided whether to use it with her bag as a keychain but thought it will be best to use it as a charm for her cellphone. “In that way, I know its always with me, and I can easily show it to my friends”, Mom said. I felt happy as well because she was proud of my shots.
