Hey friends! Do you ever create layouts using one large photo? Today I am going to show you a fun way to showcase a large photo on a 12x12 layout.

I thought the Doodlebug Cute & Crafty collection would be the perfect collection to document my very first CHA show! I printed out my photo at home on a piece of 8.5x11 photo paper. It is not the best photo and very grainy but I just love it to pieces!

Using the We R Memory Keepers Spin & Trim I cut out the photo into a large circle. Cutting your large photo into a circle and placing in the center of your page is the perfect way to highlight your image!

I wanted a colorful background and the Colorful Canvas paper from the Cute & Crafty collection was perfect! I love the mixed media look without the mess! I added foam adhesive to the back of the photo and placed it in the center of my page.

I used the Cute & Crafty icon stickers, chit chat pieces and odds & ends to frame my photo! Some embellishments are adhered directly to my photo and some pieces are popped up on foam dots for dimension. For my title I used two chit chat pieces and added them directly to the photo. Once I was finished I felt like I needed to add a little something to the sides of the page. I trimmed about a half inch off each side of my layout and then matted my page to the Bright Ideas paper. To finish off my layout I typed my journaling out on my computer, printed it out and then trimmed it into strips.

Thanks so much for stopping by the Doodlebug Blog today! I hope you enjoyed my layout and it gave you some inspiration using a large photo on your scrapbook page! Have a wonderful day!
