Before you decide what to do with your photos I suggest you make copies if you don’t have them on a drive. Some of my older photos I actually had to develop! Remember those days? So before you cut or glue double check to make sure you have other copies.

To make the mosaic design here are a few tips:
1. Try to tell the story. Just pick a few pictures as your centerpiece then add other photos around them to help expand on that photo.
2. Don’t throw away all of those photos that did not turn out, you can use them to cut up as fill.
3. Use a non-water based glue. I prefer to use Scrapbook Adhesives E-Z Runner.
4. Glue you pictures to a hard surface such as heavy duty card stock or even colored cardboard.

To make the shadow box I picked my favorite photo and added some shells inside the frame. Remember you can use anything like ticket stubs, hotel napkins, event programs and so on.
