This layout took about 20 minutes to make. As usual I made sure that the photographs were the focus of the page by limiting embellishments to the 4 stickers.

Scrapbooking Notes:

This layout is dedicated to my aunt Joan. I have a lot of photos of her when she was young so I am grouping them together to be able to include them all in various layouts. The five photos in this layout just seemed to fall into place as I was arranging them on the page. They made sense together. The four photos in the corner of the layout are of Baby Joan when she was wearing the same dress in different poses. They surround the photo in the middle of Joan when she was really young. The photo in the middle evenly overlaps the four photos in the corners. The center photo stands out but doesn't hide any of the important parts of the other photos. The five photos in the layout are arranged very symmetrically so the page looks neat and not cluttered. The spaces around and between the photos allow for journaling. I used a bold-tip pen for the journaling because I was mostly going to be writing just a few words and this, along with writing bigger would fill up the spaces. I wanted all the spaces around the photos to be filled up with journaling because if one wasn't the layout would look unbalanced. I wrote smaller when I had more journaling to add but if you can't write small enough (you might want to practice first to see if what you want to include fits in the space) then you could use the fine-tip pen instead.
