This is a mini challenge that is part of the Biannual Blogathon Bash taking place from June 22 – 25th. Essentially a bunch of bloggers are all promising to spend 24 hours working on making their blogs better over a weekend – which is kind of brilliant. Whether you choose to take part or not, you’re more than welcome to create your own collage, but only those registered for the Blogathon will have a chance to win a prize for their participation. If you are participating in the Blogathon please don’t begin the mini challenge until the Blogathon begins ’cause cheating just isn’t cool.
Have you ever visited a blog and attempted to read a post which is roughly 20+ full width photos with a line or two of text between each one? Do you tend not to bother actually reading the text? I know I do. Instead I prefer to leave my readers with a block or two of photos formatted into a lovely collage that works with my writing and tells a story.

Step 6 – Click on Photos icon, drag and drop your images into place, then click on the backgrounds icon.
