Memories Wow Recipes and Memories ($195)Photo Book Giveaway


This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to all for entering!

It was just about one month ago that my mother and I were talking about how nice it would be to have our own cookbook of family recipes. But we both knew this type of project would require extra time, money, and (not to mention) creativity. I figured, this was yet another one of those terrific ideas that inevitably ends up on the back burner- (cooking pun intended)!

Imagine how thrilled I was when Mary, founder of Memories Wow, contacted me about a review for a Recipes and Memories photo book that Memories Wow would create just for me! Amazing! Here is an opportunity, not only to have my family’s recipes published, but in addition, to have skilled designers combine my recipes with my family photos, all in one professional photo book. I admit, I had great expectations from the start.


Many thanks to Mary Gutowski-Hazzard for the opportunity to review this Memories Wow photo book. For this giveaway, she is generously offering the same custom Recipes and Memories photo book to one of my readers! *Note the Recipes and Memories Photo book is comparable to the 'classic' book (detailed on Memories Wow).

From Memories Wow PHOTO BOOK DESIGN SERVICES:

Memories WOW! was created for people desiring high-quality photo products to tell their life story, but don’t have the time, know-how or creative eye to do it themselves. Our designers are available to do ALL the work for you (WOW = without the work); we collect your images and turn them into beautiful, everlasting keepsakes. Let us create something worthy of: “WOW, how did you do that?!”

The review:

I emailed 10 photos and 10 recipes to Mary and she and her team did the rest. I received a PDF of the book for my review. I had the opportunity to make any changes, and not surprisingly, changes were not necessary.

The final copy of the photo book is 8.75” x 8.75” and has 20 pages. The layout is impressive. The recipes and photos flow perfectly and the page designs look just like a colorful scrapbook. The cover has a rich, glossy finish. A copy of every image is included on CD in a protective sleeve and is attached to the back cover. Many of the photos that I selected are pictures of my sister and I throughout the years. Mary’s designer added the “sister” poem on the last page for a very nice touch.

I was awed at how simple the process was for me – just to provide the images and recipes and I was awed at the end result, which far exceeded my expectations!

The Recipes and Memories photo book is an exceptional gift idea for mothers, daughters and sisters, and it is one that will be treasured for a lifetime. Please note - Memories Wow will design your photo book with any possible theme and for any occasion. Based on my experience, I highly recommend Memories Wow for their excellent service and superior quality photo books.

I like the deluxe book with leather cover....I'd love to do the recipe album. I lost my mom 4 years ago and she never knew my little girl. I'd love to pass down all the recipes to her one day....and share a bit of my mom with her. It would be precious.
