Hello all, I have to pre schedule this post as on the 6th of November I and a good chunk of the DT will be away on the Sarahs Cards Retreat, having a fabulous time I am sure!

So this months I have used possibly every paper manufacturer in the shop

Im sure there are plenty more but I forget.

So this month I thought I would show you a few pages I have done using bigger sized photos.

I think a good percentage of us use Photobox and why would you they are truly fabulous.

So I ordered a few photos which were bigger than the standard.

So first is a 8x6 photo not huge but still a little bit different to the norm. These dont cost that much I think it was maybe 44p which I think is pretty good.

My backing paper is the lovely Crate Farmhouse range 

I cut some super cute flowers out from another Crate sheet and added some pearls

I added some of my favourite new stickers from Jillibean Soup over the photo and used the tiny alphas from Adornit

I added some of the lovely Crate stickers also from the Farmhouse Collection.

So this next photo is really old, and its me and our best man. I am slowing putting together a wedding album so dug out a old photo (oh long hair how i miss you)

I kept this one really simple, using kraft as a background and a bit of fab Cosmo paper

I have used the fabby jillibean and mini alphas coz they are scrummy and very useable

So here you go, i kept this one quite simple with a bit of journalling explaining how Rob has been friends with Dan for years and now he is both our friends.

My final page is a busy one, you know i do like a busy page!

The lovely Red dotty paper is the fab Cosmo, you cant beat a bit of dotty paper.

This is again the same size as the others, though i should have gone bigger really.

When we set this shoot up on a warm sunny day in August we all knew it would be a cute photo for writing things on, so i used my trusty mini alphas and got to work.

I used lots of the journalling squares (is that what they are called) from cosmo to layer this page up

So there you go next time you order or print any photos why not go a sizer bigger and see how you find it.

I hope you have enjoyed my little post.
