Happy Halloween! Roree here, and I have a challenge for you today.
Now a lot of you know me as a card maker. Cards are my favorite things to create, and they are what I am most comfortable creating. I do layouts, mini albums, and altered project too, but not nearly as much. When I was thinking about what kind of challenge to post, I really thought about what would be challenging to me. The first thing that came to mind was layouts. While I do like to take photos, I am not great about doing it. I take a couple here and there, but for the most part I always forget to take my camera with me wherever I go. I never seem to have enough photos to put together a story on my pages, so I stick to one or two photo layouts. Maybe three photos if I am lucky.
So with that in mind, my challenge for you today is to create a layout with 5 or more photos. For some of you this may not be as much of a challenge so for you, try and get more on a layout than you have ever done before. Because it really is about challenging yourself, isn't it?
Here is the layout I created for this challenge:
I really had to dig through my photos to find a day that I took a lot of pictures. Luckily, I found a day that fit in with a fall/pumpkin theme in honor of Halloween.
I kept my design simple to really focus on the photos. (I think this is the most photos I have ever used on one page. LOL) I love the Print Multiple Photos feature on Photoshop Elements. It prints all of my photos at one time, and has multiple sizes to choose from. I printed out all of my photos in two sizes, and then mixed and matched them.
And I created some fun, little pumpkins to spruce up my title and play on the theme.
Collections used: 5 & Dime, Rocket Age, Campfire, Farm Fresh, Fly a Kite
Lexi played along with my challenge this week. Here is what she came up with and what she had to say about the challenge:
"We just came back from our first true family vacation and, as you can image, took LOTS of photos. I am actually embarrassed to say how many, but I am a scrapbooker so you KNOW it was a lot ;) I knew Roree had the 5+ challenge coming up and it was a perfect way to scrap several of the photos I had just taken. These are pics are of the boys seeing the ocean for the first time. I printed them all out at 2.5x3.5" and added a little bit of a white cardstock mat. I added the bit of journaling with the title on the tag, which left me room to play with some paint, ink, and lots of patterns, without it feeling too crazy.
Collections used: Sidewalks, Farmhouse, Sasparilla, Rocket Age and Seaside
