You asked, we listened! This one is for Ann, who commented on my last blog post here:
Your layout is really cute, but what I'd love to see from all scrapbook companies (OA included) is more layouts with more than one photo! And if those photos could be 4x6, that would be fantastic! Or I'd love to see how you incorporate this same layout with 3 photos and the same embellishments! There are so many of us that don't scrap just one photo on a page we'd love to see more! Thanks for reading!

As someone who doesn’t do too many two-page layouts, I decided to take Ann's comment as a challenge. I came up with a two-page, eight-photo layout that is a fun way to use the Here & Now Chapters that come with each line.
My layout features Midway Here and Now Chapter pages:
I started my layout with the four tabbed pages that come with each Here & Now Chapter set and used them as mats for my photos. Two more Here & Now Chapter pages add to the design: the one at left as a patterned paper element and the one in the middle as a journaling card. Two 4 x 6 photos are tucked into the background on two of the tabbed pages and six photos (printed three to a 4 x 6 photo page) are front and center on the remaining two tabbed pages. A large title, die cut from patterned paper and outlined in black, makes a bold statement at the top. A variety of embellishments - stickers, Tin Pins, and Sew Fun Banners - create flow, helping to move the viewer's eye through the double-page spread. A black border finishes the layout.
So...I encourage all of you fellow one-page scrappers to get out there and try a two-pager! I had so much fun creating this and using the Here & Now Chapter pages in a new way. If you use this layout as inspiration for a project, we'd love to see what you create in our October Afternoon Flickr gallery.
