Yay! WOW i am caught up finally for 2008 and i am about to scrapbook our Dominican trip from March break... the big trip I took with my daughter age 17 and my son age 16.
i laid out all the photos that might go together in the 10 page album, and am putting the papers with them from Emporium.http://www.closetomyheart.com/Ideabooks/Spring09CANMyCTMH.aspx I am thinking I am going to have to order some Moon Doggie Level 2 from the new Idea Book. It has tropical leaves, florals, reds, blues, greens, yellows....and would be perfect. I can always use the Emporium for other projects.
Anyways... here is what the two 8 foot tables in the Studio/Atelier look like at the moment, as things start to come together in preparation. There are 6 2-page layouts, starting at the top left of the photo.
The grounds, the beach, a walk on the water, parasailing, snorkelling. Dining out and time with my brother are the other 2 themes. It wasnt easy getting good pictures all of the time.. remember, I went with my two teens.
I dont use layout plans much, since I usually end up working around the photos I want to include. but I saw some cute ideas with circles that I am going to try. Maybe the key will be in using less pics, and smaller prints (not my free 4x6 HP paper that I have 1000s of sheets of )
This weekend is supposed to be warm for the first time in six long months so dont expect anything to be posted before next week. LOL.
cheers to you!
