Double Trouble!

When was the last time you created a double layout? A few years back they use to be quite fashionable in the scrapbooking world, but you don't see so many of them these days. I have been creating a double layout a month as part of the Project 12 challenge ran by a Candian Scrapbooking magazine. There is a double layout sketch provided each month and participants are encouraged to create a 2-pager of their favourite photos of the month. The hardest part isn't pulling a 2-page layout together, not given the sketch does the work for you, but shortlisting which photographs you will use can take a while (especially if you snap away quite frequently!)

The double sketch for June asked for just 4 photographs - a real challenge given our family did plenty, but I'm pleased with my selection with gives a good feel for what occured in June chez the Freeman family. I used papers from my Echo Park collection pack "Walk in the Park" which even came with the bunting style stickers which worked perfectly with the sketch. The collections by Echo Park are so jammed full of product they are perfect for summer pages and make pulling together fun layouts very quick and easy!

Share with us your double pages or your Echo Park creations - we love to see what you all create.
