I use to only do 1 page layouts because I never really took THAT many pictures that I needed more than one page, but this past year I have started to really enjoy how double page layouts look in my albums so I've resorted to them and I LOVE them! I sat down to play last night after the kids all went to bed and didn't have anything in mind so I figured I might as well start with some of my most recent pictures. I have A TON of loose paper from Hobby Lobby and Joanns that I have never used and I remembered that I had some cool water drop background paper and thought it'd be perfect for this layout!
I cut the light blue cardstock down to 11 1/2" x 11 1/2" and the water drop paper is 8 1/4" x 10 3/4". The sun is from Doodle charms cut at 4" and the shorts and beach ball are from Life is a Beach cut at 3". The title is from the All Mixed Up cartridge (LOVE!) and the letters are 3" each. I doodled around the cuts, embossed the shorts and added some twine as the string on the shorts and added some glossy accents and some of the beads in a bottle for the top of the beach ball to give it that glossy, slippery look.
