How to Assemble a Scrapbook Layout with Hidden Photos and Journaling

Sometimes I want to put more photos on a layout than what will easily and aesthetically fit.  When that happens, I usually try to hide some of them behind other pictures.  In this video, I show the planning and execution of a 2-page layout that uses 17 photographs and some hidden journaling.

The still photos of the layout have terrible glares/blurriness because of the page protectors.  However, I wanted to share them to show the little booklets that I made by just folding a piece of patterned paper into thirds.  These booklets are the bases for most of the photos and also provide a fun interactive element to the layout.
