One day I will get used to iPhoto and learn the best way to sort and locate my photographs.  I seem to have multiple copies when I sort them into folders, then I lose track of which have been printed etc etc.  Any suggestions gratefully received.  I found these photos in a folder that got misfiled - but can't find them in iPhoto...

These layouts both have photographs from our two day winter break last year.

The first one I scrapped as a double layout.  I kept it very simple, but I did add the buttons as an afterthought because it looked a little flat.  I'm submitting my layout at Scrapbook Fantasies for Weekly Challenge #06/2014 which is to "create a layout using six photographs":

My second layout is another simple one, made easier by adding my journalling to the photograph before printing:

I also added some crocheted motifs to fit the winter theme (not that we get snow in this part of the world!)

Collage Press Scrooge & Marley - December 24th patterned paper
Basic Grey Sultry - Friar patterned paper
May Arts 3/8" gingham ribbon
Doodlebug Shindig alphabet stickers

I'm submitting this one for two different challenges:  a winter theme for Lasting Memories; warm chocolately and red tones for Inkido - inspired by the middle photo on the February inspiration board:
