:LAYOUT: Santa's Helpers

This year, I didn't get to go to The Santa's Workshop with Kaitlin at her school because I had a work commitment, but my sister was nice enough to take her for me.

Luckily, I got some fun pictures at last year's event to create a layout with.

The photo collage is a great way to include several photos on one layout in an organized and pleasing way.

Believe it or not, this layout includes 3 4x6 prints – one standard, one 2-photo collage (trimmed apart), and one 4-photo collage (trimmed apart).

The title and the journaling help to balance the two sides of the layout. I also decided to convert the photos to black and white because there were a lot of clashing colors.

Every Christmas season, the school hosts a Santa’s Workshop. There are food, games and craft projects which are all great fun for the children. Kaitlin met up with Bryce – one of her best 1st grade buddies – and, of course, they had to work on a few projects together!
