Money $aving $ketches at Epcot

These pages are made with:
4 cardstock - same or mix and match for background

2 different card stock for mats
2 different sheets of printed paper 

Crazy efficient use of paper! Join us for the next class on July 10!

 I wasn't sure about using the Mickey paper as the background, I was afraid it would be too busy!  Choosing papers that were very simple and plain to go with the Mickey paper made it work.  Taking chances and going outside your box sometimes results in something fun and different for you!
 I only had a few pictures of the Norway part of Epcot so I made the second page of this layout Norway and the first page the rest of China!
One of the things I have had to do with these Disney pictures is weed out many of the pictures and really evaluate which ones to use.  Do i ever use a picture that isn't great and throw out one that is good?  Yes!  On the top layout I had several pictures of the acrobats and not one of them was great, but I really wanted to represent that on the page so I used a blurry picture. I had a few more pictures of my son in the Viking getup and chose the best and had to leave some out!

The thing I want to do with my pages is tell a story and sometimes that means a not so great picture and sometimes weeding out good photos!  

How do you narrow down your photos?  Do you do it before you print, after you print or a combination? Share your thoughts to get a chance to win some bling!

  1. I'm not to good at narrowing them down, So my better photos go on a layout and that can include many layouts of one function. Then the rest for a smash page or in the yearly pocket pages
