CKC Challenge #1 - Picture This!

Hey there!  Just a quick post to show you my creation for Challenge #1 - Picture This!  The goal here is to use 4 or more photos on a page.  For me, the quickest and easiest way to achieve this is to use a collage maker.  I love my subscription to Picmonkey and along with cool photo effects, fonts, and frames, there are a variety of collage combinations.

Here's my layout featuring a Mother's Day photo shoot with my kids:

I broke up the collage by not including a photo in every cell, but I did meet the minimum of 4 photos.  I then added a project life style card and the title spilling out of the open cells.

I used my July kit, "Shabby Shutter" to complete this layout.  This title is sort of an inside joke here around our house.

While it may sound like I'm being a martyr, I don't mean it like that.  I joke with the kids, but they know that I would go to the moon and back for them.

Just some pretty little details like a lacy Maya Road doily and a Jillybean Soup vintage style button to finish off this Mother's Day layout.

How will you include mulitple photos on your page?  If you aren't a collage maker, you may want to consider it.  Easy peasy!

Can't wait to see your creation.

Thanks for stopping by!
