For this layout I included a mini album with photos. The idea was inspired by eclectic mini albums and the popular file folders by Heidi Swapp.
I had several photos from 2006 and 2011 documenting the growth of my son and his friend. I wanted to include one from each year, but couldn't find a good way to place them on the layout. Actually I wanted to use three photos, and found it impossible to get a well-balanced layout.
Then I came up with the idea to use all photos, but just layered on top of each other. I created tabs for each page, so they would be easy turn over.
I used washi-tape to attach the pages together and for the photos (couldn't find my glue in the mess on my desk, but tape works perfect as both adhesive and embellishment :-)). The last page is a 4x6 journaling card, which I attached to the layout.
I will definitely use this idea again in the future. Super easy way to include many photos and still keep the layout clean and simple.
