Scrapbooking Challenges Part 9 - Lots of different sized little pictures

For this heritage scrapbook page, I had a lot of little pictures of my grandmother and her classmates.  Most of them were smaller than normal wallet size, and they were NOT uniform in size!  Since they were heritage photos, I didn't want to glue them into my book, but it took me awhile to figure out how to use photo corners and have it look decent. 

As you can see, I started with a mat in which I had cut 8 circles.  I then used photo corners backwards on the BACK of the mat to add the pictures behind the circles.  The forms a large frame for the pictures that helps them all look uniform and helps them make a statement rather than getting lost on the page. 

At the bottom of the page I wanted to use my corner adorner punch to create frames for the photos, but the original photos had been cut to slightly different sizes, and the corner adorner is designed to mat with a set size frame around the photo.  So . . . after matting each one, I layered them on top of a strip of the same color paper (on which I wrote the names) with the tops of the pictures aligned.  This helps to camouflage the slight differences in size.
