4-5 Photo Technique Challenge (ends Jan 21)

OK, here's a tricky one. Use 4 or 5 photos on one page. If you do a double LO, make sure one page of it has 4 or 5 photos ... then the other page can be whatever you choose.

The deadline is January 21st (I hope it's OK that I allowed some extra time for the holidays). Have fun and remember to ditch the siggies.

oooh, good idea! This will be a good way to scrap those holiday random photos.

I can't believe I'm the first one to finish something for a challenge! LOL

Journaling reads: Your first family camp was in July 2007. You were 4 months old. It was a great week and everyone enjoyed having a newborn on the campgrounds.

My entry: Kayson's 1st Gingerbread House

I opted for a 12x12 layout, because I couldn't squeeze everything on an 8.5x11. Smile

That's soooo true! I have a hard time with more than a few pages on a page. Pagemaps is usually where I turn if I need some inspo on how to squish 'em all on there. Wink

Love the page, btw! Those embellishments are beautiful!

oh, I love both of those!

I am really happy with how this layout came out. Jack is my only child to be in cloth diapers since birth, and I wanted to capture the first month or so of cloth diapers (I stopped taking pictures of him in cloth once it got cold). I had too many pictures printed that I wanted to use, so the page looked cluttered. Then I decided to hide two of them under the main picture and add a journaling blub. This is the end result!

Decided not to use my original submission for this challenge. Wink

I would have liked to have had 5 pics, but 4 was all I could do.

The best way I've found is taking your pics in natural light. And if it doesn't bother you, taking them out of the sleeve protectors usually helps too! It keeps the glare off. You can take your pics outside or next to a window. It's so cute! Cal is darling!

Gosh, there are sooooo many great LOs here. I have really enjoyed looking at all of these you guys. Mine is a two pager and both pages have four photos also. I got both the tag tucked behind the page, and the folding down of the corner from two separate LOs on here, but I don't know the names of the ladies who did them. Sorry. If you know who you are, thank you!! Competing against my kid now. Sad
