It's My 15th Wedding Anniversary!

video

Today is my 15th Wedding Anniversary!!  Unfortunately, my hubby spends more time on foreign soil traveling for work than he does at home, so on days like today... I have to stay positive and get creative.  I thought a fun video slide show would not only be fun to make, but would be very sneaky to email it to him this morning.  I love any kind of little surprise I can send that he can wake up to when he's away.

Of course... the reason I'm telling you all this (besides the fact I'm proud we've made it this far) - is because I used Scrapbook Max to make each of the slides!  It was so easy and once I settled on the pictures I wanted to use and figured out my storyline, it literally only took me an hour or two to create all the slides.  I then imported them into a bare-bones, basic Windows Movie Maker program that came with my computer and even though it was my first time using it - I found it to be quite easy.

I'll start working on a tutorial so you can use Scrapbook Max to make easy and fun memory videos too!  PLUS... I have another freebie I need to finish up and get posted.  It's a DARLING countdown for the kids who have dads that travel.

Busy week... I better run to get started!

Thanks, ladies!! It was a fun way to keep me occupied while he's away. He called and told me a little bit ago that he has shown everyone in his office in London. That was present enough for me! :)
