OK, all our entries at MangoMinster are over, what an adrenaline rush that was! Carmen smashed the Diva category (readers' choice) and Brutus managed to pull out an honorable mention from the honorable judge Fiona. Now that his Bad Sport division has wrapped up, Brutus has given me clearance to post about a recent project that sheds light on his more upstanding side.
She & her mom had made their own scrapbook using an online company called Mixbook, and thought it was so cool that he offered to give one away. We were SO excited when Twix picked our name, as this sort of thing is right up our alley!!
|What do we have here??|
Mixbook is a website where you can upload photos to use in making your very own book. You can use pre-made versions, or start from scratch. There are literally hundreds of backgrounds, stickers, and all kinds of choices - the sky is the limit!
Getting started was the hardest part, as I had NO idea what to do for our book. With literally thousands of photos of Brutus to pick from, I just started uploading my favorites. After many fun hours of playing with the website, we came up with "Life, According to Brutus" - a collection of thoughts from Brutus' perspective, with plenty of photos to make it fun!
I can honestly say this is the coolest prize we've ever won. Our book was so fun & easy to make, and the book arrived literally 2 days after I placed the order.
|So handsome & clever, I even amaze myself sometimes!|
|You gotta check it out - this really is cool!|
The little widget above lets you flip through the book, almost like it's right in front of you. Isn't that just the neatest thing ever? The actual book turned out so good that we are going to order a few extra copies for friends and gifts.
|Perhaps a sequel is in order...|
P.S. Twix hasn't been well lately, so I know she'd appreciate all the positive thoughts and wishes we can muster. Be sure to stop by her page if you haven't already!
