Salvaging a not so great picture

Do you have some pictures that have cute parts but aren't what you would normally present in a photo album?  All hope is not always lost with those kinds of photos.  I had this photo of Jazmine at the Zoo.  You can tell that she was looking at some sort of animal but it is not in the picture. 


I knew that I could find a way to make this work on a scrapbook page.  I extracted just the part I wanted to focus on.  In this case, I extracted Jazmine with the railing and a small piece of the rock.  Next was finding the right page to use this on. 


Color Line Design hosts a Stash Dash Challenge.  With that you are given a list of items that we keep meaning to use in our digi stash.  There is a list of 10 items and you must use at least 8 of the items.  This month's list included the following: Shiney Alpha, Acrylic Element, Card Board, Striped Paper, Circle Frame, Button, Picture of a Wild Animal, Leaf, Overlay and/or more than one picture.  I picked a zoo picture because I definitely had pictures there of wild animals.    Here's the page I created:

So, if you have a photo that isn't perfect but still has a beautiful subject you still want to share, see if there is a way to salvage it in a digital scrapbook page.
