I love photo booths. The old school ones where you actually have to step into a booth – those are so fun but there aren’t that many of them around here anymore.
The next best thing to a real photo booth? The photobooth app on our mac which, surprisingly, I haven’t used that much. But thankfully (and double surprisingly) my husband has been using it pretty regularly.
In the midst of last week’s holiday frenzy, I managed to start and finish a photobooth themed album. It will be his belated xmas gift. Here are some of the pages from the album (which I can post here because he rarely reads my blog).

About this Album
This project is a breeze to complete. It can easily be a one day project, depending on the number of photos you have/want to include. I had a total of 111 photobooth pics. I started in on a Tuesday afternoon and finished it the following morning. The album ended up being 46 pages long.
I used the 2 pages at a time approach method – each photobooth sequence was scrapped as a 2 page spread. One page featured a single photo (usually my favorite from the series) while the opposing page showcased the entire sequence.
I chose a smaller sized album (7×7) because the photobooth pics are low resolution files (640 x 480 pixels, 72dpi). The 7×7 canvas was the perfect size for the photos – I just dragged and dropped the photos onto my template and they were the perfect size – no need to resize! I was able to showcase a good number of photos on each page.
