Try using them as a mosaic background and then add one or two larger pix & embellish.

Cut out titles for your layouts using the photos as your "paper".

If I was so lucky, I'd make them into mini albums. And or as gifts.

You could use small chipboard books, word albums, small tins/suitcases/boxes, rolodex files, etc

Anytime I have extras photos of any sort, that's where they usually end up.

Also, for the record, another idea is to go ahead and use all the same photos in a row, within a LO. If done right, it gives it an extra creative look.

Hope That Helps!

Do you have children? I only have one. Last month, she was upset because I've been taking my doubles and started a scrapbook for each of my nieces and nephews to give to them when they graduate from high school. I didn't start one for my daughter, knowing she will eventually get mine. She said she was hurt I didn't to think to give her one for graduation, rather than waiting until she's in her 30's or 40's when I'd be willing to part with mine! Talk about guilt trip, but she was right. One thing I did start that she doesn't know about, is I've been making duplicate pages of her for when she has her own kids and they'll each have a photo album that Grandma put together for them before they were born! I've picked up a few tips along the way, and have copied some of her art work to put along side her picture at that age.

I think all the ideas above are great, I would suggest, making a time capule (other than a scrapbook). Make a brag book or whatever and put it away for your children when they are older, on their wedding day or whatever. Make a time capsule out of a paint can and decorate each for each child, put other memories in there as well, seal it off, and it will be a great treasure when they get older and share it with their familes.

IF I WERE YOU I'D DO SOME PAGES THAT HAVE MULTIPLE PHOTOS (EVEN USING THE SAME PHOTO) LIKE DOWN ONE SIDE OR SOME KIND OF PATTERN WITH THEM!!
