My sons first anniversary is next week. Since the 1st anniversary is paper, I decided to get this as their gift. It came out adorable!!! I went back and forth about using color or black and white photos in it, but decided color would make it pop more and it did. Once piece of advice. Get more pictures that you need, not all of the pictures I wanted to use would fit in the cut outs of their names, so I needed to have some flexibility. I plan on doing this for my other sons 1st anniversary and already realized that that one will have 2 extra letters in it, so the pictures for that one will have skinnier letters. So proportion is a factor with this type of gift. But I gave it to them and they loved it!! Their generation hardly ever prints pictures anymore, so it was I went on FB and downloaded pictures of them.
