Life has been pretty crazy for my family with the beginning of a new school year and whatnot. The crop I went to when I completed this page, along with three others, seems forever ago. I need to get out.
Anyway, while I shot a lot of photos, they were pretty similar, so it's a matter of pairing out duplicates and bad lighting. For this page I was left with four photos. I know some people can stretch four photos into two pages, but I'm not that person. I opted to go one-page. I crop photos down and then push them around until I got a layout I like, and sometimes I trim a little more. That's what I did here - the crop and shove method, which I'm sure will catch on soon.
I had to make a conscience decision to include more patterned paper and to layer. Given that this was a smaller kit, I used a fair amount of paper (some were trial cuts that didn't work. ) For me, I probably have enough to create a card or two. I didn't use a single embellishment, though I tried, so I'll keep the pack with the remaining papers to use with cards, and if not then I'll sort them into my stash.
Seeing this layout makes me think I need to drag my still-packed-from-my-last-trip totes and just sit down and create one page. Just one page.
