This is the first time I have done any size other then 6 x 6. My Dad asked me to do this page for one of his cousins B'day scrapbook. Instead of a gift, they asked that each family member bring a 8 1/2 x 11" scrapbook page. I tend to scrap simple, even though it takes me hours to do a tiny page, they all look simple. OCD! :) Anyways, first time scrapping this size and first time using hidden "journaling", even though all the journaling is, is names and dates of pics.
