One Theme Album Using Collage Photos

Last year I went to my cousin's wedding, it was so great to see a lot of friends and family members I love and care about, I must have taken more than 200 photos, and I wish I could have scrapbooked all of them, but we know that is impossible.

Yesterday I talked about how great collage photos look on layouts, today I would like to show you how that same type of photo can be used to complete an album about a same topic without leaving out photos you like.

This is an album I made for me, and my goal was to tell the story of the amazing party and the great time we all had, for that reason it was really necessary to add a lot of photos. Since most of my family was there, this album is also a keepsake that has all their happy faces in it :)

The Making Memories D-Ring album with 6” X 9” pages was perfect for this project, I made a total of 18 pages, all in the same design so it would be faster to complete.

What I did was group the photos in horizontal 5” X 7” collages.
Since there was not that much space left on the pages after adding the collages, and I had a lot to say about each photo, I decided to add the journaling on separate pages.
