My first 12x12 layout...



What do you think?

I haven't created a card all week because I was so busy brainstorming what my first layout would be and I finally started - and finished this yesterday.

It is so different from making a card. I actually had a few boo-boo's, elements that I glued down and decided I didn't like. I used paper to cover it up, so wasteful since it's 12x12! Overall, I thought it was pretty challenging. But, I like challenging myself and think about it, when you make cards, you give it away... with scrapbooking, it's something that you create and will turn into precious memories and keepsakes for many, many years.
