This week posed an interesting dilemma for me. I usually have too many photos and it is time consuming to go through them and determine what will get used...and what will get tossed. This week was the first time I had the opposite problem. My daughter and I use Dropbox for file sharing and lo and behold when I went in to pull out the photos that she had taken...well, there were only about 4. Then I looked in my own files to see what I had and I only had a few, as well! I sat here at my laptop with my iPhone to the right of me...texted my daughter that I was sad we had no photos of David for this week. Not one photo. She texted back that she had a video of David doing the monkey bars for the first time and within 3 minutes and dropped 6 frames into Dropbox for me to use. Problem solved fairly quickly! As we all say over and over...Technology. Is. Amazing!!
So this is what I came up with for Week 25 using Just Jaimee's June Storyteller kit:
I still didn't have a ton of pictures so I had to sort of improvise a bit. I loved the photo of Wade sleeping in his mother's arms but I thought it might look more striking as a black and white. I also modified the Becky Higgins template by "elongating" the top left slot (which is normally for a 4x6 inch photo) and made it 8x6inches roughly. I thought that gave me a nice balanced look to the page. I made the Week 25 card with a brush from the Story teller kit as well as a 4x6 card.
Here is a closer look at the left side:

I love my simple Less is More layouts. Maybe my goal should be to take fewer photos...not MORE!
and for me...? On to Week 26!
