The Bigger Picture

I generally get my pictures developed at Walmart. Their online ordering is easy and I can pick them up close to my house. Every now and then they run promotions where if you print 100 4x6s then you get 3 8x10s for free. I usually take a bunch of smaller pics and print them out on the 8x10s but the last time I printed I decided to get a couple as just one picture. When I got the pics back I thought, great, now what do I do with them. I often scrap single pages but an 8x10 takes up pretty much all of a 12x12 page so...wait for it...I scrapped them on double page layouts! I know, shocking.

For this one I cropped the picture down a bit

I cut out the sign free hand, added some Silhouetted letters and a couple of screwhead brads 

I found this button with real straw inside so I HAD to incorporate it 
On this layout I chose to keep the picture it's full size
I added lots of wood accents
 I thought this quote was perfect for all the cottage memories
It was fun to go back to double page layouts. I create them all the time for the store but not for myself! I will use BIG pictures again as I love the impact they make.
