Documenting the Solar Eclipse with Quick Quotes and Canon~

Hi, Connie here with a scrapbook page using my Canon iP8720 and the Adventure Awaits Collection by Quick Quotes.  I wanted to document the Solar Eclipse this year, when we were in Indiana, and include memorabilia on the page.

I created a collage and printed out with the Canon iP8720, but this time I used one picture over and over again.  Love the look of the same photo being repeated to create a photo strip.

I printed the collage out, using the gray scale setting, on the Canon iP8720.  Canon photo paper Plus Glossy in a 4"x 6"  was used to print the photo out on.

The collage was cut in strips and mounted on a sheet from Adventure Awaits Collection by Quick Quotes.  Then the photo strip was mounted on white cardstock.  Love making these!

I also created a pocket for the memorabilia.  I used a library envelope (the kind that used to be in the back of the library book to hold the library card) and attached it to my page.

I printed information out about the Solar Eclipse and added it in the pocket.   Our day was documented by a journal space to the right of the photo.  Fun day!!
