Christmas 2007 Layouts

Here's some digi layouts I completed today. The thing I love about digi scrapping is how quick and easy it is. Whenever I need a scrapbooking fix and I don't have alot of time to spare I can throw together a digi layout.
These multi-photo layouts were completed using another kit from Shabby Princess.
I've been investigating the costs of printing my layouts and have decided that I will print my digi layouts at the photo lab and then bind them together in a book (using free chipboard for the covers). This will allow me to make albums any size i like and give me the chance to decorate the covers. Now all I need is that binding machine I saw... lol
I was thinking of laminating the pages. Can anyone tell me if that would be safe to do or would it ruin the photos?
