Default Cruise Portraits & Pictures

Hi Mates,

We had a lot of fun posing every night and finding backgrounds we liked. We ending up getting a couple of really nice photos of us. I never felt any pressure from the photographers. We found some better than others and went to them over again.

We also bought a photo of us getting off the ship. This is where my trouble started. I didn't realize that those pictures we not standard sizes and if Carnival was selling frames for those I didn't see them or wasn't paying any attention.

My happy solution!! I found a floating frame and centered the photo on it. Then I went over to the scrapbooking section and found some cruise themed stickers and made a cute border all around.

So make sure you get the right sized frame on board or you can try what I did.

That's a great idea.

You might also consider buying a bigger frame and having a mat cut to fit your oddly sized photos. We've done that before.

I ran into the same problem with some "home" photos and used the larger frame, but I never thought of using a border like that, great idea. I will have to remember that one, thanks.

Great idea Deni....you could also try some theme scrapbook paper or a color that would enhance the shot,and float the pcture on it....!!
