My number one recommendation for this task, is to watch Shimelle's series at 2peas called "4*6 Photo Love" from 2011. There are so many ideas there on how to scrapbook lots of photos.
So I took the concept from month #8, 8 photos.
When I saw these photos, I knew it was time to dig into my My Mind's Eye stash. I could have gone modern, but I decided to embrace the whole look of the costumes in the photos and go for a more vintage look. Out came all my MME papers and brads. I also have a couple of the die cuts sheets from the Nostalgia collection, but I have to say nowadays this is not really my style anymore. Having said that, I might have purchased more than a few items from MME's newest collections. Oops.
I cut some flowers from POW paper with my silhouette. That glitter paper is awesome for cutting. It can handle intricate cuts without a problem, and it doesn't rip. If you're too intmidated to try such cuts, try them with pow paper (I adjust my blade to 7 or even 8 with some colors, I found some are a bit thicker than others).
This is the main page- the title stays visible when you add the other pages.

And the two smaller pages (put in a 12*12 page protector that was cut to size):

And this is how it looks in the page protectors:


  1. Great layout - I have lots of "vintage" MME in my stash and love to pull it out to play with. I still love it all. Glad to know I'm not the only one.

  2. Beautiful! Loving the glittery cutouts!
