Guest Book Layouts

Well as promised a couple more pictures of the infamous guest scrapbook. Most of the pages turned out ok except for the actual photographing the pages themselves. I apologize for the blurriness of some.

I managed to cut off some of the bottom, but since I only took the one photo being in a hurry I truly apologize. This is a 'girls page' but some of the photos were from Eileen's wedding back in '93.

These two pages look much better IRL. Halloween is a fun time around here. October is general is one of our favorite months. Someone usually hosts a big Halloween party and we typically will have the band play, tons of games and prizes. Do you have any special Halloween traditions?

This is the last page in the book. We figured we'ld get a good picture tonight and then it can be added later. I realized though for me it is actually harder to do a layout without having the pictures in front of me. Do you find it hard to do a "blank" layout? If not what are some of your secrets? How do you figure out the picture size space and such? If anyone has suggestions I'ld really appreciate it, as I'ld like to maybe do a book for a friends baby who is going to be 1 in a couple of weeks.

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.

I just made a baby album that matches my cake for Shannon and it was super hard for me since I didn't have pictures.

I copied layouts and then put white mats where the pictures are suppose to go. Kindof a waste of paper, but it did help visually a little bit.

I love that Halloween spread though!

Arlene, these are great layouts!!
I can't ever do a layout without a picture...too hard for me.
