Yes I Really Did



Yes, I really did drag the poor kids up and down the Walk of Fame in Hollywood.

Yes, I really did photograph 160 different stars (actually, 161 - I already scrapped the photo of Colin Firth's star).

Yes, I really did print off those 160 photos at such a tiny size that you can't even read the names on the stars.

Yes, I really did cut out each tiny photo, apply even tinier pieces of double-sided tape, spend a couple of hours arranging them and rearranging them and then sticking them down.

Yes, I really did feel that this process was worthwhile.

Yes, I really did write out this whole story round the edge of the 160 tiny photos.

I'm a scrapbooker. It's what I do. And your point is?

Photos taken along the Walk of Fame, Hollywood. in August 2011.

Scraps of various papers - mainly Crate Paper and a bit of Lily Bee; lots of tiny index print photos; Thickers

Love it, a scrapbook original for sure.

Absolutely laudable. We'd have done the same ourselves if we weren't bone-idle.

Well we walked the walk, but we didn't take that many pictures! We picked a few favourites - I was very intrigued by TSO's choice of Shirley Temple. You have made a great page

What a great looking layout. Congrats on getting it all done. Lining them all up would have done me in. :)

I don't really know what to say, I am sure the process was a calming experience!
Did you consider dropping them into a digi template?
