Oh, hail the 4x6 print! This month I'm going to use mostly 4x6 photos in my layouts. I've gotten in the habit of cropping down my photos before printing to a size I think will work well on my layouts. Often this means a 3x5 or sometimes a square photo. I don't always have the complete layout in mind. I just know which photos I think need the full 4x6 treatment and which can go a bit smaller.
This all works great until I want to print a bunch of photos. Then it is just overwhelming to figure out sizes for everything. I did know that I had far more photos for these pages of the Atlanta Botanical Gardens than I could use as full 4x6. So some of them are cropped to 3" x 4" with two photos per print. I also cropped a bunch to 4x4 which will be on another page later in the week. I was printing these on a Walgreens special of 50 photos for $6 so I did quite a few more 4x6 and those will be coming up in later pages.
The garden exhibit was called Imaginary Worlds. My husband liked the snakes best and I admit they were spectacular. My favorite was Mother Nature which was the largest sculpture with a waterfall spilling over her hand. I also chuckled at the chimpanzees.

More about the rest of the garden will be coming along later in the week in another spread that has a pocket for memorabilia and lots of journaling.
