For today's challenge of all pictures, no journaling, I picked up some pages I've meant to finish. We had a neighborhood picnic last June, and I did a one page layout about it for a previous CKC post. But I knew it deserved more than one page, both because I had a lot of pictures and because it was a big event for Crystal.  So several months ago I picked out some divided page protectors, inserted some pictures, and left the 6x12 parts of the pages to finish at a later time.  And here's how I used this challenge to finish those pages.  First, an overview of my four pages:

Loved using my mini-kit this month. I only added cardstock and a few brads and ended up using quite a bit of my kit's contents.  Combined photos here using the PhotoGrid and Pixlr-o-Matic Apps.

And here are some closer pictures of the four 6x12s. Sorry for the goofy colors - I was trying to save time a snap pics with the pages in the protectors, so there's a lot of glare. I love how much orange and green ended up in my kit:

So this page doesn't count - I included a little bit of journaling on this one :).

I have to say, 6x12 horizontal was not the easiest size to work with, especially since I had already printed all the pictures as regular 4x6s. But I was determined to not make more work by reprinting in other sizes or picking different pages, and in the end I'm pretty happy with how they turned out.  And once again, I'm just happy to be done with something!

If you ever find yourself in need of using this 6x12 size, I did find some links to 6x12 sketches:

Just two stops to go on the hop! Next it's Corina and then Lisa. And there's still time to link your own projects to this month's Mr. Linky. Please also watch for the new month of challenges at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog, coming up on April 1st.  Thanks again for stopping, have a great week!


  1. Your Project Life type pages are so fun :)

  2. Great divided pages! Love the details!

  3. Love how you used arrows to speak on these pages!

  4. Looks fantastic and odd sized pages are harder,I've done them! Looks like a great party :)

  5. If you hadn't said I wouldn't have known you struggled with the 6x12 divided section - the way you've added your borders and title looks great!

  6. You did a fantastic job with these, Rebecca. The green and orange and pink are all fabulous together. The pages really turned out well and no one would have known you struggled at all! Great job!

  7. great colours and I remember seeing a layout or photos of this fun event from before. looks great. I like the change in size and think you did great especially if you are working with photos you had already printed.
