As I was getting ready to create a layout for my Friday post at Noel Mignon - I realized how disorganized all my photos are :( I use iphoto and have them in albums created automatically when they were imported. However, I think I need to go in and label with dates and events. Any suggestions on photo organizing??? Any programs that work really well for this?? I was super frustrated because in moving some files from an external drive to my hard drive - I lost all the dates & thousands of photos got lumped into one huge album. I wanted to scrap some pics of Ryan at the boardwalk in Ocean City from a few years back, but for the life of me I had a time remembering exactly when they were from. Hence the need to really get my pics organized!! I don't want to go through this every time I scrap my old pics :( Anyways - enough about my disorganization :) Here is the layout I created from the pics I mentioned & the new Noel Mignon "Our Summer" kit. Full of fun, bright colors - this kit was perfect for my pics and so much fun to work with!!!
When I first laid everything out, I did not have the teal arrow diecut paper behind my photo - but I realized I needed some "pop" behind the photos. I used an arrow background I found in the Silhouette store HERE. I also decided to stitch around the photos. There was a lot of white in the photos, so the machine stitching ended up being a great way to help them stand out :)
For the title I combined those awesome cork looking Thickers from the kit, along with the "love" cut file from the Silhouette store. HERE is a link to the file. I journaled directly on one of the Jillibean Soup banner stickers. Around the journaling I added some cute tags & stickers from the kit :)
Hope you have a great Sunday!! Enjoy the last day of the weekend :)
