Challenge completed

The UKScrappers website has a great forum section and one of the regular features is a weekly challenge.  This week the theme was anti-valentines day, so the challenge was to include mostly black and white (and definitely no red, pink or hearts or flowers), to use three photos (not a pair!) and to use a four-letter word (but not the word "love") as a title.

It was easy to choose which photos to scrap but harder to decide how to arrange three on the page without it looking too much like a standard photo album.  I think my final arrangement works well ...

It was interesting to do this LO as a 12x12.  I normally scrap all our family photos in 8x8 albums and these photographs would have been scrapped very differently at that size - this LO just wouldn't work scaled down to that size as the photos would be too small.  As I do so much of my scrapping at 8x8 size, it's very liberating to scrap 12x12 LOs and to have all that extra space to play with.
