These Are My People


Anyone else out there have a box full of unused photos?  Okay, maybe several boxes?  If you just answered “yes” let me reassure you that I totally understand.  I too have photos of every size stashed away in my closet.  Photos from High School, College, from my childhood, wedding . . . you name it and its probably in there.  This box has slowly expanded from times when I’d print duplicates, end up using an alternate photo on a project, take a photo down from somewhere- whatever the circumstance, if the photo doesn’t have a home it goes into the box.  Well, I’ve been meaning to do something with these photos for the longest time and I’m finally getting to it!

I’ve decided to start a 6×8 binder to hold mini layouts for all of my old photos.  I love that the 6×8 size is manageable and the layouts come together super quickly, plus I have so many 6×8 binders that I’ve been wanting to use, so this is the perfect opportunity!

This page came together pretty quickly (once I figured out how to cover up a giant mistake I made pretty early on :).
