# 1 - These Pages Make You Happy
There is something about a review layout that puts a smile on your face every time you see it!
Many of your memories from that particular week or month are all in one spot. So, you're able to see multiple moments of time spent with family, friends, or at home. These pages bring us much joy since we get to review all sorts of happy times that took place.
If you're like us, you'll want to flip to these pages over and over in your album to see the good moments.

#2 - Document Everyday Life
"A Regular Week" by Jodi Benson
Every scrapbooker makes pages of all the big events and trips, but we don't usually make room for the everyday.
Another reason to love review layouts is because you can document your day to day life. We love this layout showing a winter week in January and all the sweet moments. The memories made at home can easily be forgotten, but a week in review layout revives those seemingly small moments.
While everyday photos may appear bland on your phone or computer - placing them on a layout makes each one seem more beautiful!

#3 - You Can Use Your Random Photos
"August 2014" by Paije Potter
Maybe you're like us and have a collection of random photos - such as the delicious cookies your neighbor gave you, the squirrel in your backyard, or that adorable plate you found at the store.
We don't necessarily want to dedicate an entire 12x12 layout to these photos, so they just sit on our phone or desktop indefinitely. But, a month or week in review layout makes room for your random photos and we love that! Now all of them will have a place in your album.
Any scrapbooker wants to make sure they document everything they can - even those random or unexpected moments!
#4 - Flexibility of Colors and Theme
One of the fun parts about making a week or month in review layout is you can choose any colors or pattern paper you want since there isn't a particular theme.
If you have a pattern paper in your stash you haven't used yet, this might be a great opportunity. Or use a color scheme you have been wanting to try! Although this might be fun for some, this might be overwhelming for you - so here are a few ideas:
- Choose Colors and Paper based on the season (or holiday if applicable)
- Choose a pattern paper or embellishment and use card-stock that coordinates
- Pick 3-4 colors next to each other on the color wheel
- Choose a Grid Paper color first, and then pick coordinating paper.

#5 - The Feeling of Satisfaction
"Making the Most of March" by Tami Potter
Have you gotten to the end of the month or week, and feel like you didn't do very much or take enough photos?
We often feel like this, especially if it wasn't very eventful. But, we're surprised every time we make a review layout, and find that we did more than it seemed! This brings us a feeling of satisfaction and we want you to experience this too.
If you don't think you'll have enough photos for a review page, check your stash - you might be amazed that you have the right amount for a layout!
