When I asked for a "nice" photo....and got this...*LOL*


Now I love doing multi-photo layouts because I feel that they help to tell the story better. This is THE exception.

"Come on...let's take a "nice" photo together!"

Problem #!: The over-smiler.

Problem #2: One remained in the shot but across the road!

Yep. This was an outtake that needed to be scrapbooked. See what I'm dealing with when it comes to The Gangster Gang (nephews + niece)? *winks*

Currently I'm a little obsessed with using my odd-sized paper scraps to form a fun mat for my photos. 

I also try to fit as many fussy-cut elements on my layout as possible. Look Julie,  a birdie from Jillibean Soup! *hehe*

All while keeping the items as flat as possible to maximize album storage.

The birds are multiplying while you sleep. What other explanation could there be?! I love this layout and the frame on 'the one that got away!'

Lisa said...

Yay, the Gangster Gang!! I just love them!! What an adorable picture...I love the frame around "the one that got away"!! I am amazed at how you can pack so much detail and layering into a layout and it still be flat!! It looks so dimensional!! Spectacular, my friend!! Have a great day!! Big hugs :)

HahaHA... omgosh, I feel your pain.... why is it so hard to get that one "nice" photo? But I am sooooo glad you scrapped this outtake, because it really did make me laugh out loud. I am loving the over-smiler and the one that got away. That was genius to add the little frame, because I didn't even see him over there. And besides this awesome photo, your layout is absolutely stunning! LOVE the layered photo mat!
