Little Pieces

I mentioned last time I was working on a layout originally planned as a 12x12. And also that I croppped the photos using my rectangle Nestabilities - here's that layout. I fooled around with it a bit more. Decided to use my corner rounder on the photos as well. I also took out my Quickutz Zoe font - i thought it worked nicely with the Making Memories patterned paper for some reason. Regardless I'm liking the whole 8.5x11 size these days. And who would think you could fit 10 pics on two 8.5x11 pages?
I still have a lot to do with the negatives - mostly because events around here are demanding my attention. And I have to begin the next phase of my Photo Freedom project. I'm still wondering whether or not I really need to purchase the storage binders. My photos are all organized and in boxes. Buying and using the binders just seems almost redundant for me. I think - not sure - I can use the boxes as she uses binders. We'll see. Gotta run!

Wahoo! Tracy's back. I love your 8.5x11 pages. They are perfect...not too crowded, great journaling, and great pics. Is your album 12x12 with a mix of 12x12 and 8.5x11 pages? I have done some 8.5x11 pages in J&Ks baby albums, an album I did for dh of his baby pics, and the heritage album I did for my grandparents. It's kinda fun to mix.
I'm thinking you don't need the albums if you already have the photos organized nin your boxes. Work smarter and save a step. As you work through and make Joseph's album, then Eliz's, you can always go back and re-think using the albums when there are fewer pics.

I'm always fond of this size! I love the fact they are a breeze to create and store. These are great pages! I love giving babies lil quote pages to go with their particular look. That Joseph is sure a cutie pie! (oh, don't we miss those days, we could cuddle & snuggle them?) Hope your doing ok! Oh, and thanks for the book reviews, too!
