LOM saved my life.

I love hearing LOM success stories.
Here’s a good one …

I just thought you should know that you saved my life–or maybe that of my husbands tonight. We are headed out of town to my father in laws 80th birthday on Sat.(oh  and I am working a double shift at the hospital tomorrow) My husband calls me tonight and asks me to pull together some pictures of Dad’s life and do something with them. First I stood there with my mouth open and wanted to say something that wouldn’t have been kind–instead I said no problem. Ran to my digi “drawers” copied all of the pictures of said father to a folder-uploaded them to Costco, formatted a collage there, had it printed in CA near Dad and it will be ready to pick up for the party on Wednesday. Did this all in less time than ranting and raving would have taken about planning earlier..
I LOVE LOM and so does my hubby and he doesn’t even know it!

Just a few days ago I received these images and this email.

I thought I would send you the photos from my father in laws 80th party.
The collage was so successful that I made 2 others when I got down there with other pictures that family had. The best part was they were only $2.99. As a side note I am taking one of the layout ideas from the Big Picture Festival and I am doing 27 pictures from the party–all on one page. I will get that posted to BPS when I get it done.
I am ljr3kids there.
Thanks for all your great ideas!

I say, Happy Birthday Dad!
And, thank YOU Linda — I love the community of sharing that exists at BPS.
I love all of YOUR great ideas too!


  1. That looks like a great idea for Christmas gifts this year! I have a tight budget, but now I can gather old photos and do this as gifts for family members. Thanks for the idea!

    • I thought the very same thing — how funny!
      I think this would be a fun thing to do for each of your kids for their bedrooms or a wall down a hallway or something.

  2. Open to anyone –
    Any recommendations for the best way to scan/copy old photos to digital?

    Thanks in advance.

  5. My comment is completely unrelated to this post, but I had to tell you that I LOVE your PRT pick of the week. Those suitcases are absolutely adorable. Thanks for sharing!
