Blog hop

The blog hop that was originally scheduled for this weekend has been cancelled.  We will try again in June.

Lots of photos

If you are anything like me, you are always looking for ways to get lots of photos on a layout without printing them so small you can barely recognize what they are or cropping the daylights out of them! I came across a layout on a blog one day and got the inspiration for this layout. You can see the original at:

It is by Trisha Ladouceur, a most gifted scrapbooker. Anyway, she shows how to get 2 5x7 and 3 4x6 photos on one page. I took it a step further and got 2 5x7 and 5 4x6 photos on one page! I used my Design Studio and Cricut Expression to cut the postage stamp paper base as well as the border and cutout. I used Creative Memories paper from the Reminesce collections and I believe the buttons are by Bo Bunny. Here is my take on Trisha's layout.
Here is the first of 2 5x7s.  I plan on doing something to make the title pop and I plan to add the date under the photo.  I'm not quite finished fooling with this one yet.

Open out the 5x7 and you will find the second 5x7 and first 4x6.

Flip up the first 4x6 and you see the next two 4x6s.
Flip down the bottom 4x6 and you see the last two 4x6s.

I like the interactive aspect of the page and how I got to keep all my photos intact.  What do you think?
