As usual, these holidays have seen me finish some scrapbook layouts. I try to keep as up to date as I can, because when I fall behind, the amount of effort needed to catch up freaks me out and totally puts me off even beginning!
This time of year, the pages are of Megan’s birthday. I needed to do two double page spreads, one for her day of special activities on her actual birthday and one for Megan’s gymnastic party.
I’ve used a new app called ‘Blur It’ to blur out the faces of other people in these photos to post on this blog. I’m sure the families would give permission for their kids to be shown but I prefer to keep it just a ‘Megan and Alex’ zone (and saves me chasing permission!!)
The final layout is from our trip to the snow last week. It’s hard to find ideas for layouts with lots of photos. Most people seem to use just a couple of photos per page. I’m too lazy to spread the pictures out over multiple pages so I try to cram them all into one page or one double spread. This often means I need to ditch the non-essential photos. Luckily when I print the images at Kmart or Big W, they have a collage photo option which produces small 3x4inch and tiny 2x3inch pictures.
