Sour Photos...Make Lemonade

Thats what Sherry Stevenson is preaching in her upcoming September class at Get It Scrapped and in the final installment of Thought Provoking Thurdays. Her challenge to us was to take our sour photos and scrap them. She even included this very helpful hint: Use your sour photos to support the story, while using a fantastic photo to steal the show!

Thats what I've tried to do here in My Dog-Garn Loveable lo. We have managed to capture quite a few breathtaking photos of our two loyal friends Coda and Maddie...but we've also taken our fair share of duds...particularly every photo of the two of them together! So in this layout I've chosen my two favorite pictures of my dogs to stand front and center, but have added a small photo strip off to the side to show them growing up together over the past few years.

Most of the photos in the strip are low quality cell phone pictures...but this fact isn't quite as obvious because of Sherry's great tip...can't wait to see what else she has in store for us...I've got plenty of lemons!
