Like my dear friend and team member, Lindsay, who posted here on Monday, I too love me a grid layout. This post today is ode to the grid. This grid is a bit bigger and sans embellishment. That’s because I chose the embellishing to be the star of one page. And the gridded photos to be the star of another page.

Buried here beneath these photos and Scrapbook Insert is the new Sun Chaser Project Pad. Using papers from the pad I embellished this page and told this story.

That flower is a Columbine. It’s our state flower. And it was in beautiful bloom on this park day with my son and great nephews. I decided to embrace it with all the yellows of Sun Chaser, allowing the 4-grid photo page to stand alone.

This is probably one of the easiest and simplest photo grids I know. The photos here on the right side of the page measure to 3 inches wide by 4 inches tall. These fit perfectly matted against the photo paper inside this Scrapbook Insert.

With the photos all linear and in place on the right side, this gave way to crafting a fun embellished page on the left side. The idea of the photo story on one side, and then all the embellished fun on the other side of a two page spread is really growing on me. This technique is starting to be found frequently in my albums. It sort of takes the pressure off of coordination all the photos with color. It keeps the photo story just that, the story. And it enables a whole lot of play in one concentrated space. All these ideas make for great story telling, in my opinion.

I hope you find this an interesting technique for your story telling too. Take time to tell a well crafted embellished story, then keep all the photos on their own page. See if it’s a format that will grow on you too.
