Pondering Layout Sizes...

I love doing layouts in all different sizes. 12 x 12, 8 1/2 x 11, 6 x 12, 8 x 8, 6 x 6 - you get the idea. And I love the idea of having them all in one binder, so... being inspired by Ali Edwards, I did that this year. But here's the thing. When I flip through my album, I find that the smaller layouts tend to get swallowed up by the bigger ones. Know what I mean? The distraction of having the bigger layout behind it, makes it hard to focus on the small one in front. Here's an example:
do any of you have this problem? And if so, have you found a solution for it? I can't decide what to do. Maybe I need to start a separate album for each size?

I got an email from Creating Keepsakes that my Project 365 kit shipped - yeay!!! I can't wait to get it! I've been taking my photos and notes and I can't wait to start putting my album together!

I've been pondering what approach I want to take for Project 52, and I think I may have found it. I was really inspired when I saw my Scrapping The Music friend Alex's 52 ATCs she created in 2008 - one each week. They are so beautiful and I adore how they all look together! I love that idea and I think I will join her in doing that this year as my Project 52. Alex does hers on Sundays, but I think I will do mine on Wednesdays - starting this week! Thanks so much for the inspiration Alex!

That's all today folks, but I will be back tomorrow with more to chat about! Til then I wish you peace and happiness my friends!

GIRL I still have to put my layouts in binders .. but maybe staring from the smallest to the biggest. So if you want to take it with you , you have that onefor that..and then you have the others for just 12x12, and so on .. Happy Tuesday

Do you keep your in any kind of order? I've just started dabbing into 8 1/2 x 11 and I haven't had that problem yet... or maybe I do and just didn't notice :) The only thing I can think to do is move them around in your album till you don't have that problem or some kind of divider? Really not sure. Sorry I couldn't be more help!!
