The Today Show Surprise.

I love surprises. On Monday I got one of the best and biggest surprises ever.

Last January, Creating Keepsakes and Shutterfly teamed up to offer different photo book templates designed by some of your favorite Creating Keepsakes people. I was asked to create a sample using Jessica Sprague's super cute ABC album template to use for promotion and to get the ball rolling.

I decided to take a different approach to just a regular ABC album and assigned letters to our family members and asked them to come up with advice for Drew on becoming a big brother. You can see it here...

Fast forward to this January...

On Monday I was going about my usual routine when I decided to check my Facebook account. There on my page were three different posts about my Shutterfly ABC book being on the Today Show. I stared at it for a few minutes trying to understand what I was reading. Kind of like when you first wake up in the morning and don't know where you are. My book on the Today Show! You have got to be kidding me! I frantically followed the link and sure enough there it was.



Great designer moment for Jessica and a great mommy moment for me!

Awesome--I just wish I had it in hand now--home with a sick kiddo. This looks like it would pass the time on the couch a little quicker! TFS

I hope that kiddo is feeling better! :) Email me at alidavis19@gmail.com.

Thank you everyone! :)

And yes Drew does think he's famous but that started long ago. When we first opened the doors at Scrapbook Generation the only people creating layouts for the store were me, Stacey, Mom and Karin so every single layout was about Drew. When we added on a design team and Drew saw a layout without his picture on it for the first time he didn't know what to think. He had a strange look on his face that I can only describe as him thinking, "who in the world is this and why am I not on this page!" :)
