Snaptotes graciously gave me the chance to design a Single-Strap Bucket Bag for my review. You can choose from a single photo, a collage, or use one of the templates provided on the site. I chose the collage, and opted for a different set of pictures on each side. There are several background colors available; white, black, brown and pink. After browsing, I settled on the purple, and got started uploading my photos. It was very simple, and easy to navigate and design. You can choose what pictures are placed where, so it's fully customized. Unlike some photo gift companies I've seen before, that just throw your pictures on and you have to live with their layout :)

After placing my order, I was very anxious to see how the purse actually turned out. Due to a rush of Mother's Day orders, it took right about 2 weeks for my purse to be shipped, and only a couple days for it to be delivered. When I opened the package, I was amazed at how nice the bag looked! The pictures are stunning, and the colors stand out bright and clear. The pastel purple background sets them off nicely too. Between both sides I had 13 slots to fill, so I was able to include some of my favorite family photos from the past year. Several from our trip to Branson made their way on, as well as some from hikes, a day at Legoland, and the Texas Ranger museum. Each picture brings back a wonderful memory, and I absolutely love having them on my purse! I have received so many compliments while out and about, and of course I direct them all to Snaptotes.
Aside from the pictures, the Bucket Bag itself is very nice as well. It's nice and roomy without being oversized. There are a couple pockets and one zippered pocket, so I can arrange my little accessories. It easily holds my wallet, comb, pocketknife, etc. and has room to spare. Yet again, it's not too big. It is just the right size for what I like, and is very well made. I also like the hard base, as it keeps my purse from flopping and spilling. Even without the photos, this is my favorite purse ever, and the memorable photos only make it better!
A gift card to Snaptotes would be the perfect gift for Mother's Day! Or buy one for yourself-you will not be disappointed!
