I've been dragging my feet on doing this layout. I had so many pictures, just hard to do a layout for a whole week of pictures. I used less than a third of the pictures I had printed out. Even then, it was hard to place them on the page.
Don't tell my mom this, but this was probably the worst family vacation we've had. I mean, it's nice to see family, but I would have been fine with just 2-3 days. And Arkansas? No offense to anyone who lives there, but we were in the middle of nowhere, and our houses were so spread out. I feel like the family I spent the most time with was my immediate family, not the extended family we were there to see.
That being said, my husband was really funny with the layout. He said "The photos are just on the page, they're just square. But it was like the whole week, square and boring". He summed it up, I matted two photos - the only group shot I have (and we're missing half of the people) and the picture of my sister leading the band of my children in music (my favorite memory of that week).
I don't know what else to do for this page. I mean, there's no room to really mat any other photos. And I already pared down the photos, and the ones I used are the ones I really want to keep on the page.
I should also add here that I did a WHOLE BOOK of this week for my mom as a birthday gift. So I guess I feel like I already did justice to the week by doing that. However, I needed to capture it for my family album, so my kids can see that we went. I just don't have many pictures of the rest of the family cause, like I said, we didn't see all that much of them.
If you read all of that, thank you. And if you have any suggestions on improving this page, I'd love to read them, even if I don't act on them in the end.
