Anyone Have Any Ideas...

ETA: Check it out! This layout was published in the October/November, '07 issue of Ready-Set-Create, pg. 70! Yeah! :)

on how to get decent pix of 12x12 scrapbook pages???

This is a page that I made the other day of last Thanksgiving. We had a wonderful day at our friend's house, and this is the first of a double page layout. I hate the pic, but have tried and tried to get a better one, and have failed miserably! Any suggestions would be appreciated!

The journaling talks about how these pix remind me of the book Green Eggs and Ham. "I do not like green eggs and ham, I do not like them, Sam I Am!" Then, "Say, I do like green eggs and ham! Thank you, thank you, Sam I Am!" I'm sure that this is self-explanatory, but Wyatt wouldn't eat the yummy dinner we slaved all day over, and then once he tried it, he decided that he loved it!

I'll try to post the other page soon. Not today, though, as this is the 3rd post of the day, already! :)

ETA: I have fiddled around with this pic long enough, BUT, while it's not perfect, I feel like it's "good enough"! I just messed around with the angle that I was taking the pic, and tried to get it completely STRAIGHT ON, and then cropped it. Major pain in the hind end, but I'm much happier with the end result. I know...kind of anal, huh!? ;)

  1. Your so funny! This pic looks great!!

  2. The only time I've seen nice 12x12 photos have been in magazines! Hehe... the best amateur ones have been a shot like you already have and some detail shots. Looks good to me though!

  3. I just saw a tutorial on another blog about this. need a photoshop program and a scanner. Basically you scan half the page and then in the photoshop program seam the two halves together. Sounds both simple and complicated...if that is possible. BTW, cute page.

  4. The LO is great the pictures really capture the fact that he loved the food.
    I think you just need another light when you take a picture of a big page. One for the top corner and one for the bottom opposite corner. Bigger space more light.HTH


So what do you think?
