    Some other tips for making a page quickly...

    Use a font instead of an alpha. For my "subtitles" (and yes, I know the page is missing the main title, LOL!) I would have looked through my alpha stash if I was in "normal scrap" mode. But that would take forevah with all those letters! Using a fun font can make a page go oh so much more quickly! I love this playful font of Katie's for this page.

    Another tip for quick scrapping...

    Use your recoloring skills! If you need some help learning some awesome recoloring tips, a must have is Cassie's How’d They Do That? No. 19: Recoloring Essentials tutorial!

    I recolored the clip and used it multiple times, and I recolored the "splashy" elements, font titles, and some of the patterned papers. That's a lot quicker than spending time finding/choosing different elements/products.

    Another of my favorite things to do for a great start to a fast page...

    PHOTO CLUSTERS!! If you look in my gallery, you'll see that I use photo clusters a lot for my family album pages. I definitely have a love affair with photo clusters!

    Now, sadly, I couldn't provide a layered .psd file in the freebie. Those files are much bigger and not everyone uses Photoshop/Photoshop Elements. But if you do use PS or PSE... definitely invest in some photo cluster products! With the layered file, it's quick and easy to clip a photo to the photo mask, and you can alter each frame, move them around, etc. They provide a lot of flexibility.

    Whew - no stress here - right? I think I made it in the nick of time. Some of you were done so fast!!! I still need to add a title and a couple other tweeks - but love the photo template. I'm sure I'll be using that again!
