am i the only one left?

Seriously, folks. Am I the last person in the scrapbooking world that does double pagers?

I flipped through 15 pages of layouts on Two Peas the other day and found ONE double page layout.

Most of the layouts I see in both Creating Keepsakes and Scrapbooks, Etc (the mags I have subscriptions to currently) are singles.

Now, we all know that I can rock the single pager here and there…but mostly I am drawn to doing a doubles. I just like how the story flows from one side to the other as you flip through my books. I like how I can add a few more pictures, more journaling and spread out the cute embellishments on a double.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m a big fan of the single pagers. I love how it gives you the opportunity to get a bit more artsy and creative in a smaller place. I think there is a place for both singler’ers and double’ers in the scrapbooking world.

I’m just wondering where all my fellow double’ers are at? Holla!

Here’s one of my latest doubles:

disneyland2010 Our Disney trip in February.  I’m not a fan of the traditional Disney colors and embellishments much anymore…overkill in my books, I think. So I went a different route this time…Disneyland by land, sea and air. And Jillibean’s New England Chowder line was a perfect fit!

disneyland2010detail02 When journaling on my computer, I highlighted the highlights (ha ha) in red…made for a fun journaling block.

disneyland2010detail03 You know that I love the pennants that are everywhere right now…this one is all Jillibean! I punched that stop sign out of the Butter paper from the New England Chowder line and then glazed it up, adding the mini letters from MLS.

A Single’er or double’er? What are you?
