Simple Collage

Published February 21, 2012 by sortitclickitdone

My traditional picture collection?  A disaster.  Plastic bins and albums full of pictures that have been long neglected until 2 years ago.  Now, some of them are scanned, organized, and believe it or not, scrapbooked.  Before Creative Memories, I tried to scrapbook not very successfully.  You see, I am artistically challenged.  I thought I had to cut circles out of the photos and try to arrange them on the page—believe me NOT pretty (someday I will put ugly scrapbook pages on this site—starting with my own).  As I began scanning and organizing, I found it easier to gather a group of pictures for a traditional page.  I AM still artistically challenged but I get a lot of help from the folks on the Help Zone at my website

Birthday Memories

and from page planners.

As you see in the photo, I want a way to remember my son’s 3rd birthday with all of the fun and friends.  A collage is the best way to display these wonderful memories.    You don’t have to do it complicated, you don’t have to add a lot of bling.  Just pure and simple memories arranged in a simple way.

I didn’t even have to cut circles in the pictures.  If I can organize and scrapbook my pictures, you can too—give it a try.  Need help, ask your personal photo coach—ME!  Happy scrappin’
