Got Vacation Photos? Get 'Em All On One Layout!

Today at Summer Camp we'll look at getting many photos on a layout. Betsy brings us this idea for getting lots of photos on her vacation layout:

I found photos the other day of a summer vacation we took in 1999.  It was one of our most favorite vacations full of cousins, aunts and uncles, adventures, and really funny stories. I really needed to scrap them!  There were only about 15 photos, but why not get them all on one layout?!
There are two photos on the front of the layout, but hiding underneath that grouping is a bunch of others. The title and the chipboard buttons are tabs that pull up ...

to show sets of photo collages and journaling ...

These photos are old, taken with a basic camera, and covered in shadows and bad lighting.  Using some quick PSE fixes (auto sharpen, shadows/highlights, brightness/contrast) really helped make the photos better.  The photo collages were made in PSE by using rectangular shapes as masks for the photos.

You can download the photoshop files I used to create this right here with these links:
