I decided to scrapbook ONLY the best photos or the silliest ones and cut all of those photo strips a part to get those small 1" by 2" photos. I decided to do a grid pattern with them since they are so small in size and my grid ended up being 4 mini photos by 3 mini photos in size. I matted my grid of photos onto white cardstock, then yellow cardstock and then black cardstock as you can see in the photo above.
I cut 1" squares from black cardstock and then cut them in half on the diagonal to make my own photo squares/triangles. I glued one onto each corner of the yellow print background paper. I used alpha letters to spell out "Photo Booth Smiles" and mounted each alpha sticker onto black cardstock and then left an 1/8" border around each edge. I placed them onto the layout using adhesive foam dots to add dimension and I placed them crooked and slanted as I wanted a silly & fun look to my page. It's a great way to use up some leftover mis-matched Alpha stickers!
I made mini name plate journal boxes out of white, yellow and black cardstock. I think they each measure about 1" by 1 1/2" in size. I used a black gel pen and wrote each of our names on one and then the year of 2013 on the fourth & final one. I attached them to the page using adhesive foam dots.
The thing I like the most about this layout is the over-sized metal & rhinestone camera charm which was original a key chain! Its pretty large and sparkly with the rhinestones embedded in the faux camera lens. It adds some interest to the page along with just a tad of glitz and glam.
Overall, I am pretty pleased with how this turned out! I am working on a coordinating page which will be really similar to this page but will also include my journaling block & tags. A great quick & easy scrapbook layout to use up those tiny little photo booth pictures!
