The Really BIG Squishy Hug

I was thinking of making the title of this post "No longer an 8.5 x 11 Virgin" but I figured I might get some really strange people visiting the blog! lol {Did you know that search engines will find your blog based on what the title is? If you want people to be able to find you doing a search, put the keywords in the title that you think they will be searching for.}

Back to why you're here...I've had an 8.5 by 11 album for a few months but this is the first time I've completed a page for it. It was fun to be not so square! =)
This is the sketch I used for the layout - a PageMaps sketch from January....and the materials were mostly all from a mini-kit from Scrap For A Cure.
It's been over a week since I've scrapped before this one...I miss it but life has been pulling me in too many other directions lately. It's a good thing I was so productive the first part of January!

Aww, your girls are so sweet! LOVE your layout, especially how you did the title and the buttons on the turtle! And no, I didn't know that about search engines, not sure I would have used "Really BIG and quishy" in the subject line either! ROFL!

Looks great. You've just made me realize I've never scaped a layout that wasn't square! I've done 6"x6"s but those are still square:) Mini albums don't count, right?

Hugs,
Kristina

Cute layout. I have been wanting to do a 11 x 8.5 too. You have inspired me! :) Thanks for sharing about the keywords. I have gotten some really weird comments on my blog. Maybe that's why.
