The MotherLOAD Marathon: Days 4 & 5

Day 4 was stripping a page back to your must have basics.  For me, that's cardstock, patterned paper, circle punch and alphas, even if they don't all make it on to an actual page.
Day 5 was about scrapping an alternative to normal.  For me, that's 8.5x11.  I like how this size looks, but I always, always then add it to a sheet of 12x12.  Funny how I 'see' 12x12 as my norm.

8.5 x 11 is one of my favourite sizes but I don't scrap it as often as 12 x 12. I really like your taxi lo.

great looking pages. I started out with 8.5x11 but at some point felt I needed the symmetry of 12x12

It's funny 'cos I always think of 12 x 12 as my norm too!

12x12 is definately my 'norm' too! Great LOs!

I used to always turn my 8.5 x11's into 12x12's too - not all that often now though, I have embraced the smaller size!
Love your top page today Ruth!
