I am somewhat new to scrapbooking. I made a scrapbook of my first born grandbaby and I thought it turned out well - nothing fantastic. Now we have a 2nd grandbaby. I am putting together a scrapbook of all photos from the annoucement that she was pregnant through the 1st year. I am having trouble placing my daughter's pregnancy pictures on a page. I have looked through layout after layout! I have 7 pics and wanted to put them on a 2-page spread. I am stuck with the layout and a title for the 2 pages! does anyone have ANY suggestions??

Here is a link to MANY 2-Page spreads in the gallery... they are not specific to pregnancy, but you can adapt just about anything to fit the number of pictures you have and the title/etc.

HTH!

Well, you don't need to have a title for it if you don't want to - and not using a title would give you some more space on the page for the photos.

You can stagger the photos in different locations on the pages, like in this Star Wars layout by Amy:
Star Wars in Concert By Amy110401

Or like in this Valentine's layout by Carol: http://www.scrapbook.com/gallery/image/layout/ 3862821.h...

You can crop or print them each to about 3 inches wide and do a single row of photos across the two pages, with three on one page and four on the other - which would give you lots of room for a title if you come up with one. Something similar to this layout by Scrapperbee, but with the photos at 3" wide instead of 4":
Memories By Scrapperbee

Or like this variation on resized pictures:
Ollivander's wand shop By Jaksmim

You could use a pocket page for six of the photos, and enlarge your favorite photo to highlight on the other page. Like this type of page protector:
We R Memory Keepers - Page Protectors - 6 Up - 6 x 4 Inch Photo Sleeves - Fits 12 x 12 Three Ring Albums

Here are some gallery layouts with 5 or more photos: http://www.scrapbook.com/gallery/?type=-1& c=211

Here are some two-page layouts in the gallery: http://www.scrapbook.com/gallery/?type=-1& c=83

Thank you! I looked thru some of the layouts and found my inspiration! I've got the layout done. Now all I have to do are my embellishments. Thank you so much!
