 Back in the 1990's when I began scrapbooking it was about getting the pictures on the page and writing about them and adding a title and you were done.  The more pictures on the page, the better.  Scrapbooking as an artform has evolved so much over the years.  Now it can be a much more creative and artistically challenging endeavor.  The trend has become that less pictures on a page is more.   Most of the time I agree with that and most of my current layouts only have 1-2 photos on them.  I think these pages are more impactful and make more of a statement.  With that being said, I have a trilllion pictures to get on the page and if I only do 1-2 pics on every page I will never catch up!!!  So this week at S.W.A.T. Drill #3 challenges us to use 4 photos on a layout.  I was so excited about this that I did a double layout with 4 pictures on each page!  

I fell in love with the My Girl collection from My Mind's Eye when I first laid eyes on it!  It was perfect for this fun layout!  
I made a tiny little pinwheel for the center of the 4 photos on this side.
Simple, yet perfect title "Girl Time"
This was my first attempt at these trendy little bows! So glad I gave them a try, they were the perfect compliment!
Such wonderful Brads in this collection I could not choose so I created a trail from the journaling to the title!  
I hope this inspires you to get more pictures on some of your pages.  
Follow me for more great scrappin' ideas!
