I decided to go with 12x12 for all my holiday and event layouts. I just can't seem to squeeze all my random photos on an 8.5x11 inch page. So I ordered a 3-ring 12x12 scrapbook to put them in.
I bought a sheet of this pretty paper at a scrapbook store a few months ago. I rarely buy single sheets, but it was just too pretty to pass up. Well, when I opened my Christmas presents, DH had bought me another of the very same sheet. Guess he knows my style. I was able to cut one down and use it for hidden journaling and pics, so it worked out good. (I'm using the scraps on another project.) Not my usual style, since this is just random photo placement and tons of journaling, but it was fun.
I took pics both inside and outside and neither really do the color of the paper justice, but you get the idea right?
