today at Getitscrapped.com, I have a another layout being published.
I was asked to make a layout using 6 photos! When I have to work with lots of photos, I usually scale down the pictures so that I still have room for (lots of!) journaling. You know me by now. :) But this time it was all different!!! The computer was DEAD! So I had no access to photos other than that big box of old photos sitting under my tables, waiting for me to do something with them. Yuck! So I digger through. I had no other choice. And I figured that the best way to get things done for me IS when I have no other choices anymore. I work well under pressure so to speak. Can you relate??! ;)
So I dug in my not so appealing box of photos and I found pictures of the trip we made, right after our wedding, with our guests that came all the way from Switzerland. The big picture: a group of 10 young people, 3 cars, 2 weeks and a road trip through Ontario and Quebec.
The pictures were taken with a APS camera. Do you remember those?? We could choose between a small photo, a slightly longer one and a panoramic picture. I don't know the exact sizes. So here I am with those strange photos, of various sizes, pretty big.....and awkward. And I start! :) That's the best part.
And I finish....
As you can see, I cut some pictures and manage to put all those 6 very bulky pictures onto my layout. Awesome, right?! :) I was happy that I could also use a small dead spot to put some journaling. I couldn't go into the details, but it's fine. At least I did something with those pictures that were just sitting in a box under the table.
her are some details:
Ok, so now I was done for my assignment! But wait, I had other pictures that I had laid down on my table that didn't made the cut and that would still need to be in my layout to tell a more complete story. Then, I'd feel that the road trip was told correctly and I'd be happy to move on...so I got to those pictures and follow the same process of cutting them to a decent size and I filled a whole other page, that gave me a (beautiful) double page layout. :)
Here's the full layout, finished!
The second page:

I LOVE SCRAPBOOKING!
As I was scraping, I relieved my trip. So many great, beautiful and funny memories resurfaced and that is one awesome feeling that people that don't play with their pictures never get to experience. :) You see, you don't need much to scrapbook. Photos (they sure don't have to be perfect!!), some paper and cardstock, maybe some letter stickers, scissors, some kind of adhesive, a pen and that's it. You're ready to go! So if you always wanted to give it a try, today is the time to start!! :)
Ok, see you real soon!!
