7 pictures on an 8x8 page???!!!

Personally, I find it easiest to make a scrapbook page with only one picture on it.  This usually makes it pretty easy to create a page focal, and allows plenty of room for title, journaling & embellishing.  Often however, I don't want to take that many pages in my book (and frankly, one picture per page can get a bit boring).  This page shows what can be done -- even with a small 8 x8 page -- to fit several pictures on a page.  By cropping my photos and printing some of them smaller, I was able to get 7 pictures on this page, and still have room for the poem! 

In this case, I at first thought I'd print the pictures a bit larger and go with VERY narrow margins between pictures.  I found, however, that it looked best to go with wider margins between pictures so more of the page showed between pictures.  This helps pull the page together and helps keep it from looking too busy.
