Capturing a Magical Parade

My son loves to watch Disney parades.  His favorite is the Pixar Play Parade.  And the next best thing to watching it in person, is reliving the memory by watching videos of the parade.  I’ve used QR codes to add video clips of the parade to my scrapbook pages.  If you are using Adoramapix to create your photobook, you can see Steph’s instructions for adding a QR code here.  I create my layouts in Photoshop and my favorite QR code generator is www.qrstuff.com.   I simply paste the URL for my video (from my blog, you-tube, etc) into the box, pick a color that works well for my photos, and download the code. 

Then I open the code in photoshop (or photoshop elements) and change the mode to RGB:  IMAGE>MODE>RGB  Then I can add it to my layout.  Here is what it looks like in Photoshop:

And here is what it looks like in Photoshop Elements:

And here is my completed layout:

My little guy loves to relive these parades by watching them as we look through his scrapbook.  I'm sure in years to come with the parade changes he'll love them even more.  Give it a try!
