Peek A Boo Photo (How Neat is That Hop & Tutorial for Frosted Designs)

If you are looking for my Day 1 project of the How Neat Is That Hop, please go HERE.  I have to say I am floored at the wonderful comments from Saturday ~ thank you all so much!!  That is the reason I keep creating and sharing!!

Today I am combining my tutorial for Frosted Designs with Day 2 of the Blog Hop.  If you found me first, please to the BEGINNING so you can qualify for more Blog Candy!!

Here is another layout where I have hidden some photos in it. I am currently catching up on last year's summer vacation layouts. I have way too many pictures for the pages I want to use. We also go to the same place every year so a lot of the pictures are repeats from year to year. I am always looking for ways to put as many photos in a layout without it looking like a photo album. This is one of my favorite tricks!
I start with a piece of white cardstock and cut it to 8x6.

I score it in half at 4 inches to make a "card" that is 4x6.

I use my Martha Stewart Score Board to score and crease the fold.

I put a piece of ribbon on the bottom of one edge.  I use my ATG gun to glue it down.

I take the best of the three photos and glue it to the front of the "card" over the ribbon tail.

I glue the other two photos to the inside of the "card."

I use my ATG gun to adhere the "card" to my layout.  Here I matted all of the photos in blue.  I added the title and a little embellishments.

I hope you find this technique usefull!  It is also a fun way to hide your journaling by writing on the inside instead of adding photos.

I do have some blog candy!  In order to qualify, you just need to #1 be or become a follower, #2 leave me a comment with a favorite vacation memory and #3 leave me a way to contact you if you win!!!  Your next stop in the hop is Patricia!

Such a great idea and I love your LO!! My favorite vacation memory is when we went to LA for a week. We went to Knott's Berry Farm, Disneyland, Grommin's Chinese Theater (the same week Starwars came out!) Universal Studios and some place called Santa's Village up in the mountains. We camped out the whole week and had a blast!

Thanks Lori!

New follower as of Day 1 of this hop. I really love the picture flap idea! I always have way too many pics that I want to put in. My favorite vacation memory is my honeymoon at Myrtle Beach. Sun and sand by day, strawberry daiquiris on the veranda by night.

My favorite vacation memories come from our family trip to Florida many years ago. I have a large family, and about 20 of us made the trip and went to Disney World and the now long-gone Circus World. I have a lot of wonderful pictures of my sister who passed away in 2002 after a long battle with cancer.

Absolutely love your layout and what a great idea for getting more pictures per page! I take a lot of photos, so I can use that when I scrap my family pics! Thanks for taking part in this blog hop. Your ideas have really inspired me!!
