Quick & Easy Scrapbook Page

I'm not a huge scrapbooker (although I totally appreciate those who are and love checking out their work!) but I do enjoy creating a quick and easy page every now and then. I've found that, for me, a 6x6 or 8x8 layout is the best. It's large enough to fit in one big or a few smaller photos and a few embellishments but it's not as overwhelming as a 12x12 layout. I can never figure out what to do with all that space! This was a layout I created for the travel section of a SNR publication. They didn't end up using it so I'm posting it here. This is a photo of the Manhatten Bridge, taken from one of those cruise ships my brother and SIL rented for their reception. They're just about to celebrate their one year anniversary so the timing of my post is well timed! They got married on a beautiful day in May last year and the boat cruise was a blast! Since part of my heart is in NY, I wanted to use the typical I *heart* NY logo on my piece. The heart is super sparkly, wish I was better at photographing those details, and the chipboard was left plain. All materials used on the page are from Stampin' Up! Happy Thursday!

I love this simple layout. I, too, am intimidated by the 12x12 size and so I prefer the 6x6 and 8x8 layouts. I am embellishment-challenged, so the smaller formats are wonderful.
