The Obama Time Capsule

I'm sure by now, everyone has heard that Obama has won the Nobel Peace Prize.  What a fitting day to tell you guys about The Obama Time Capsule

THE OBAMA TIME CAPSULE: World History in the Making is essentially a customized book that allows you to seamlessly add your personal pictures and thoughts to the existing professional photos and essays documenting Obama's journey to the White House. The book contains beautiful photographs and essays and gives users the ability to insert themselves into a piece of history. To get an idea about this book you can check out a recent broadcast from ABC Evening News.

Being a scrapbooker, I live each day trying to chronicle the lives of my family.  Part of that includes, weaving their life into what is going on in history as they live.  Theirs is the first generation to experience something unprecedented in the history of our country, having an African-American President. Regardless of which side of the political table you sit at, there's no doubt that Obama's presidency will have a major impact in our children's futures.

What I love about The Obama Time Capsule is you get to add a part of you into this history.   You can pick a name to go on the front cover, a picture on the back cover plus you get to customize a couple pages on the inside.
