I decided to make a scrapbook page for my oldest daughter (47) using some of her wildflower photos. I call this page-Payback Time-because of a photo she took of me weeding in a flowerbed. I took this photo of her filming a wildflower on one of our many wildflower hunting trips during the year! The page does look pretty good in real life and I know she will like it.
I make my pages 8 1/2 X 11" and use a regular 3 ring binder with a plastic cover so I can decorate the front and back as I like. I can put two finished pages back to back in page protectors in the binder.
I have the red X so my page may not show up.

Oh, lovely. I am not a scrapper, but I love seeing photos used and not just sitting in a box or album.
And you're right, it's much easier to get a good photo of a little flower than of a LO. I think the trick is to have it upright, and stand as far back as possible to reduce the perspective distortion. But hey, I'd rather see this than not see it at all :D. Your meadow violets are very different to ours, I didn't know that before!
