Anyway, once I made the decision to go 12x12, I also decided I want to redo some old pages. I want the 12x12 album to be devoted to the first year in my new apartment. The first pages I decided to redo are my birthday layout. I was really disappointed in my first birthday layout because I thought the colors i used were dull and then I made a flower border as a cop out because I measured the pictures wrong as usual.
If you dont remember, here is the original layout:
It's not bad, it's just not my favorite. I'm not sure why I used the beige background. I think it was to give the page an antique feel. It didn't work very well.
Anyway, I decided to go with a brighter background color. I also was able to add a few more pictures. Oh I also solved my scanner too small problem, in a crazy way. I taped the pictures to my closet door, set my camera up on a tripod and took pictures of the layouts.
I tried putting the layouts side by side but blogger likes to make my life difficult...so use your imagination.
