This is Your Life Book

Maybe you have heard of the TV show “This is Your Life”? It was a programme aired on BBC back in the 60’s.
In the show the host surprises a special guest, before taking them through their life with the help of the 'big red book'.

It is a collection of old photos and new photos complied into chapters, printed and bound in a beautiful handmade red leatherette cover
with the title "This is Your Life" gold emboosed onto the cover along with the persons name.

It really is a bespoke gift idea that would be cherished for years to come.
A trip down memory lane!

 


 

Where to Start?

I created a “This is Your Life” style photobook recently for my husband’s 30th Birthday. THIS IS YOUR LIFE
I first began by contacting family and friends to send on any pictures they may have old or new.
I gathered all the photos I had at home as well, picked out the ones I was going to use, and grouped them by Chapters.

I split the book into the following chapters-

  • Early Years
  • Growing Up
  • Family
  • Friends
  • Adventures
  • The Mrs and the Dog

Other Chapter Ideas could be-

  • School/College Years
  • Achievements
  • Happy Memories
  •  Work
  •  Messages

 

What to do next?

Send us all the photos and messages,
There is a few ways you can get the messages to us-

  1. Email us directly at  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
    If the photos are too big to send by email you can send by
