Hey Onie, today I also received my very first 8x8 book from shutterfly. It's so cute! The scrapbook Max layouts are so vibrant, they don't appear flat but very 3 dimensional, which is what I was really hoping for. I see shutterfly is having a 20% off a 12x12 book, which is what I truly want to do, but I'm hesitant about spending too much money. It's funny but I would spend so much money over a year in scrapping supplies but laying out $40-$50 at one time for a digital book has me feeling like I'm spending too much, the reality is that digital scrapbooking is going to save me quite a bit of money in the long run. Sorry for my rambling, just working this new way of scrapping out in my head!!
