Oh my goodness these pictures!!  Don't you just love looking back at old family photos?  These are pics of my 25 year old son's first birthday. I found them all on a layout that I did in 1995, but the page had gotten torn. I decided to update the layout with Party Time papers and embellies, create a two page layout, and use the photos exactly as I had in 1995 ... hence the reason they are all wonky sizes.
This is a super easy double-page layout that you can easily do if you have lots of photos.  
For the first page, I started with the dark blue "hats off" 12x12 background.  I layered a piece of 11.5" x 11.5" white card stock in the center of the blue, and then a piece of "party time" aqua paper cut to 11.25" x 11.25".  I did my journaling on a cute card from the "wrap it up" sheet, and layered that in the upper left corner with lots of fun balloons and die cuts from the Party Time odds & ends.  Next I layered my pictures, just as they were from my 1995 layout, onto a 3 1/2" x 11.25" band of "hats off" and added it to the page with a strip of candles from "party boy".
For the second page, I just repeated all of my steps, except that the aqua "party time" paper was cut to 7.25" x 11.25".  I added some pops of yellow and orange from the collection and finished my layout with lots more die cuts.  
I'm glad I had my camera and snapped every minute of this cake adventure!  And I'm also glad I have Party Time to make my pictures even cuter!
