I love to take pictures. Lots and lots of pictures. I probably take too many pictures. And I know you don't have to scrap all your pictures, but sometimes I want to scrap them all for certain things. But I don't want to make 6 or 8 layout pages for one event, either. Enter Scrapbooks Etc digital collages. These digital templates are fun and easy to use, if you are familiar with Photoshop Elements or other photo editing software that uses layers. They have many styles and formats in their templates, so each creation can look different. After getting all your pictures in place, you can print your collage out at home or send it off to be printed. Many online printing services offer odd size prints, like 10x10 for printing the square templates. My favorite is Mpix. No worries if you don't know or have Photoshop Elements, tho; you can create your own collage in many photo editing software packages. Laurie and my favorite is PhotoElf and Rick gives the BEST customer service!

I created this layout using one of the square Scrapbooks Etc collage templates. I made it  8x8, so I was able to print it out right at home. Patterened paper is Rusty Pickle and We R Memory Keepers. The adorable paper piecings were made by my good friend Judy by hand. Check out her other awesome stuff on her blog Pieces of Me.

Have a fabulous Friday and wonderful weekend!
