Sand Table LO

Please excuse the crappy picture. I lost the charger for my camera battery while on vacation so I had to dig out my old camera to post this. Sad

I'm not sure I love the overall LO, but there are parts that I actually like a lot. This is the LO I was wanting to make the smaller sized pics for, so it was fun playing around with that. I LOVE LOVE LOVED getting the four different pics on one sheet (and paying 9 cents like a regular pic!!). I think this it totally going to change the way I scrapbook! (I'm not kidding, Gwen - you are my HERO!!!) There are so many times I want to include a lot of pics but I wish they were smaller. I'm excited thinking about all of the possibilities...

I also really like the little crown at the bottom! I'm not sure why; I just think it's fun, I guess. I put some tiny bling on it. Wish I would have taken a close-up because it's cute!

Oh, and WTH? I think my paper cutter is cutting crooked lines!!! The more I tried to fix them the worse it got. ??? I guess when I think about it, I have had it forever, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised. But it still ticks me off! LOL

ETA: Boy, am I chatty tonight or what?! I went to Michael's to pick out a birthday gift for my SIL...look what I found on clearance for $3.99!!

Gorgeous LO! I love what you did with the smaller pics, I am definitely going to have to do that too, what site did you print them for only 9 cents?

I remember you struggling with the smaller pics, glad to see you got it the way you wanted it. I think it is so great! Love everything about this. We'd like to get our LOs a sand box of some sort, I can see that your LO loves it. Smile TFS and congrats on a good find at Michaels. Smile

I put the four pictures I wanted into a single 4x6 collage using Picasa (see this thread http://www.pregnancy.org/bulletinboards/showthread.php?t=537773), uploaded that file to Walmart.com and had it printed as a regular 4x6 picture. So cool!!!! I am going to do this all the time, and you ladies are all going to get sick of seeing my mini pictures! LOL

I LOVE THIS PAGE!!!! I have to go back and find your post now cause I also always wanted to do that. If I want wallets it is 99 cents a sheet so this is much better. That page is just perfect!

I love the LO. I especially like the papers that you used. I am so scared of prints. Wink They look great!

Sometimes I think my paper cutter doesn't cut straight either.

Thanks for the idea about getting the 4 pictures printed on once 4x6

Also if you want/need a smaller pictures same day. You can take your camera or card to walmart and use the Kodak machines and you can print 9 pictures on one 4x6 and get it printed immediatly or you can print 2 on a 4x6. I think it cost .24cents, but it was so easy to do and fast.

this is a neat layout, I love it! and hooray for different size pictures. Wink I love the crown, so sweet.

my paper trimmer was doing that too so I bought a new one. I also have a big guillotine style one, and sometimes it cuts things crooked, and I don't know how. must be user error.

love that paper set! I can't believe you're giving that to SIL, I'd totally keep that one. Wink

I absolutely LOVE that LO, I have to scraplift it and soon if you don't mind. I have done the collage thing before but only for cell phone pics since they are not high resolution they need to be smaller. I would for sure do this more often if I were you, I don't think anyone would get sick of it. You paired some great patterns too, I wish I was better at that. And last of all Lindsay is adorable.

I can't say enough good things about this one. WTG!

You ladies are all so sweet! I always end up liking my LOs better after I read all of your comments! LOL

Andy, scraplift away! I think I have only been scraplifted once before (aside from the phone tag game, anyway :lol:) so I'd be honored!

Oops...didn't word that very well in my first post...I went to Michael's to look for SIL, but yeah, I'm keeping that one for myself!!!! ROFL I'm no dummy! Biggrin

I love this page. That's great that your able to get "wallet sized" on a 4x6. I love the look of smaller pics,, but don't do it often, because I really don't need 4 wallets of the same picture.

This is going in my scraplift folder.

I love the design of your page! I don't see any crooked lines at all, and I love the crown and the title, just awesome! Great color palette too!
