Too Many Pictures

The challenge this layout presented was that I wanted it to be a memento of our entire trip.  I was just making an 8 x 8 page and we went 5 places that were all very different.  I wanted a picture of each, but there was no way to make that fit and still have room for title, journaling, etc.  What to do?

What I did was create a photo wheel that I placed behind the page, with a frame cut out of the page itself.  The wheel can be turned to allow a person to see each of the 5 photos.  Here's another view showing a different photo in the picture window:
Note that there's an arrow showing the direction to turn the wheel, and there's a second little window cut out to show the number of the photo that corresponds to the numbers in the journaling block.

What a wonderful idea. Where did you learn how to put the wheel and pictures in the right spots so it would work? Does the flower in the middle hold the wheel in place? Great job

Thanks, Carol. To answer your question, Paper Wishes sells a template for making a 12 x 12 page similar to this. I looked at how they did that and adapted it to make this one in an 8x8 size.

Forgot to say - Yes, the flower in the middle is held by a brad which holds the wheel in place. :)
