I have to ditto Brittanie's post! Most my pictures have the subject right in the middle. I just recently started trying to take some pics off center (I had read an article about using the rule of 3rds in picture taking).

That's a really cute sketch!! If you don't have a pic, you could also do an embellie or pattern or embossed paper instead of a pic 2 cut down the middle.

Wonderful Job Nicole! I just love your subjects!

You win you srappred it first, but I knew you would.

Kelsey the rule of thirds is BIG in phootgraphy. If you saw my original that Nicole blew up, you would see that the kids where actually in the center third. I did that to show the scenery. Then I did have the kids in third on the rocks but daddy moved the baby moved a little to the right so the sun would hit his hair. I told him it would wash it out thats why I had him in the shaded rock.... I use to do B&W and develope my own prints. I feel out of place in this digital world, but I try to remember some of the things I learned back in the day.

I did cut 2 inches off the side with E and A to get the center between A and B.

I couldn't scrap my own [pictures because my suject is usually DEAD center and fills the frame EVERYTIME.

I used to do that when I had more money and scrapped mostly 2 page Lay outs and then I seriously got out of the habit when I started doing one page lay outs. So when I snuck out scrapbook shopping I think 2 month ago I purposely bought doubles of all my CS and by the time I had gotten to this sketch I swear I had used one piece of each color set!

never enough paper.

Great job, Nicole! When I seen this page in the projects thread, I thought these were possibly Tiffany's pics. I knew they weren't your kids.

Cabo Wabo is the cantina/restaurant/music hotspot that Sammy Hagar owns there. The history of it is pretty interesting and there's now one in Las Vegas and a couple of other places as well. Google Cabo Wabo cantina...it's pretty cool.

Thanks! I've said DH loves to buy me tools and that's one of those Crazy 8 punches (something like that anyway). It works great with a 12x12 and supposedly down to a 7x7 size piece, but it seems like everytime I try to use a smaller piece it either looks horrible or I screw it up. Just need more practice
