A week in Palma

Jennifer's 2nd prompt this week suggested using 6 x 6 papers on 12 x 12 pages.....as a cardmaker I have dozens loads a few small paper pads.....but rarely think to use them on large layouts....and often they would be perfect.....so this was great inspiration.....note to self.....use them more often.
I found the perfect small papers for a page I wanted to make.
Last September we spent a week in Palma.....a small,old,bustling,pretty city that we loved.....I'm making an album of the holiday....but wanted one page to put in my 2012 album.
I made a collage of a few photos in Picasa......used three 6 x 6 papers....lots of journaling spots.....and some washi tape [second LO in a row with the washi.....hope this isn't a new addiction!].
My 2012 album is finally nearing completion.
p.s.the title is straight....it's the photography that isn't [sorry,Amy].

That's lovely Jacky - I like how you used the frame, it ready emphasises the photo.

Snort! Are you meaning me being worried about a straight title?

Actually, in Feedly your title is what stood out as being strong, bold and distinctive ... it grabbed my attention! Love the colours too!

Love the way you have framed one shot, it really makes it stand out. Brilliant idea!

I definitely buy more 6x6 paper than any other kind now. I love the smaller patterns too. Beautifully bright and breezy looking holiday page

I, too, love the frame. I have a few of those tucked away, but had forgotten about them. The photo collage looks great. I have many 6X6 pads as well, and just recently started using them on scrapbook layouts.

Your use of the smaller papers on the 12" page is great! I need to use mine too. What am I saving them for? I only do 12" pages anyway.

Those 6x6 papers work perfectly on a 12x12 LO...& I love your grouping here too. :D

I must admit I hardly ever use 6x6 pages on a 12x12 page, but I may just start :)

I love this! I, too, have a few 6x6 pads and will have to review that prompt and see about doing something with it.
Thanks for the re-inspiration.

I used some 6x6 papers on a layout this week myself as one of the prompts in the Camp Scrap workshop. Your layout looks great, and YES washi tape just might become an addiction. :>)
