This first layout is 8x8 and does not contain a photo. I had created the 4x6 card to include in my 2007 photo album right about the time I began switching over to the LOM system and non-chronological scrapbooking, so this 4x6 card was in my storage binder. This layout will go in our All About Us LOM album.
This next layout is 12x12 and showcases one 5x7 photo. I love this photo of my nieces and great-nephew laying on the living room floor coloring during our Christmas get-together last year and knew I would want to highlight it by itself on a layout. So, when I ordered my 4x6 photos from December, I ordered a larger print of this one. This layout will go in our Activities We Enjoy LOM album.
I actually scraplifted the title for this layout from a layout by S and I've had this crayola paper in my stash for quite a few years.
For me, the number of photos on a layout depends on the event or topic of the layout. I have layouts that include numerous photos and some that include one or none and I like them all. I don't think I'll ever settle on one particular type of layout based on the number of photos.
BTW - this is my 250th blog post!! Next week I'll be celebrating my 1st Blogiversary, so be sure to check back for a fun give-away.
