Trying on a new size

Not clothes, though I am working hard on that: going to the club for the elliptical, waiting patiently for the pool to be serviced at the club so I can swim laps, and starting to run (I'm up to 1.3 miles--good for me!). No, I tried on a layout size I saw on Write.Click.Scrapbook: 12x18.

Jody Dent-Pruks was the one who did this size layout, and I thought it was a brilliant idea. So when I started making this page on my boys' first trip to the Lego Club at the Mall of America (inspired by this week's sketch at Studio Calico), I thought I could give it a go.

When I made the layout as a 12x12 spread, I didn't like all the white space on the right (odd, because I normally do), so I lopped it off! After having done so, I think it would have been better to make the left side the shorter one. Still, my boys are not going to gasp in shock when they see this layout and say, "But you should have made the LEFT SIDE the shorter one!" So all is well.

Hmmmmm, I am intrigued by the possibilities of the different size. Hope Dominic is feeling back to normal.

Very cool concept! I often think about going smaller and doing more 8.5 by 11s, sometimes the 12 by 12 is just too big!

Hmmm... interesting... how does this work in an album? (sorry if it's a dumb question but I can't figure it out!)
