Ideas For Multiple Photo Layouts From The Cherry On Top

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

A member from a fan club I'm in commented how difficult it can sometimes be to come up with ideas for multiple photo layouts.  I couldn't agree more and thought right away, that I'd come up with a helpful blog.  If you would also like to be a member of that fan club.  You can request to join here:  (It is from A-Manda Creation.)

Why multiple photo layouts?

One, photo layouts are great for featuring a particular photo.  When you really want that photo to stand out and be on it's own.

For both traditional and digital scrappers, multiple photo layouts are great for saving pages.  If you eventually want to print out your book, then you'll save a lot of cash by using multiple photo layouts.

Download, print on rigid paper/card stock, cut, tape or glue dot to some thin dowels, sticks, balloon stems...Then find some fun models and take your shots.

Thank you for checking out The Cherry.  

7 Days of Awesome Sandwiches

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

I'm diving into sandwiches today.  Belgians eat a lot of sandwiches.  For the most part, lousy sandwiches. Despite the fantastic butcher shops full of delicious meats and salads.  It boggles the mind.  The Cherry is here to remedy that and indulge our audience with the most delectable samiches on the planet.  If you know of a better one, then hit us up with the link, Man!

Mexican Chorizo, Garlic Shrimp Burger:

Warning!  THIS is a serious sandwich and quite possibly, the most beautiful food blog I have ever seen.  This sandwich is edible art and it won't be made in less than 10 minutes, but it will be worth the work.  Consider this recipe as the ultimate gift for your favourite sandwich lover.  It will be an excellent demonstration of your love for that particular recipient.  Give me a call, when it's ready!  You're drooling...

Brie, Prosciutto, Arugula Caramelized Onion Sandwiches
Wow!  Another gorgeous blog with delicious eats.  That is one be…
