On a beautiful summer day in August...

We went to the Alder Planetarium and here's the layout I create to document our trip.

It's hard to believe that with our family's love of sci-fi and all things space... and that we are all native or long time Chicagoans, this was our first time visiting the Planetarium.  Goes to show, you can be a tourist in your own town. 

I was able to get 27 photos on this double page layout.  And I still had room for two die cuts (silver and black glitter paper) of the Die-Versions' Solar System Whisper die.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE this die!   Here's some close ups of the layout.

And here's a video of my making the layout:

I hope you enjoy.  Would love feedback, so don't be shy.


  1. Great layout!! Love how many pictures you got on 2 pages!!

  2. Love how you were able to get so many pictures on a page

    1. I used Picasa to collage 19 of my pics. I love Picasa, because I can tell it how big I want the finished collage and it just sizes the pics accordingly. Once I had my two 11x4 collages (the right and left one), I had Picasa create a new collage w/those two at 8.5x11, so I got all my smaller pics on ONE sheet of photo paper. LOVE Picasa!

  3. Wow! This is awesome! That die is perfect for your terrific pics! Love it!
