Remember... *Mother's Day* is coming!

Good morning!  Just a *quick* reminder that Mother's Day is just around the corner!  And to help you get on your Mom's good list - we have put together a couple of *quick & easy* last minute projects that you can put together that will WOW Mom and not break the bank!  Remember your pages from any MMS project can be saved as jpeg images and used in a variety of ways to create a CUSTOM DESIGNED project that makes *YOU* look like a Design Diva!

Today's project will require a trip to your local Target, Walmart, or similar store!  Check the PHOTO FRAME aisle for all kinds of great COLLAGE frames!  Here are some examples that I found at Target!

Just because you may not have a wide format printer at home, doesn't mean you can great great BIG wonderfull wall art for that special Mom on your gift list!  It's easy to create 4x6 layouts and either print them on your home printer or send them out to your local quick photo lab for printing.  Remember to get your pages all set to print to 4x6's, simply to go VIEW and then choose GUIDES from the drop down menu and then select the size that you want to create.  Most of the multi-photo frames that I really liked needed 4x6 - so that would be my choice.  Remember if you need LANDSCAPE orientation with your prints, simply choose either an 8.5" x 11" landscape layout or 12" x 12" square layout and then snap on the guides.  If you need a PORTRAIT orientation 4x6 then choose the 8.5" x 11" PORTRAIT style layout for your album page and add the guides there!

Here is a great lesson on using the GUIDES that has a PDF lesson AND tutorial video that can help you if you get stuck! 

PDF instructions can be found here: *GUIDE PDF*
