Beaches Sandy Bay

Die cut papers ... I always have a hard time with them. Don't know why. They are just an odd shape that I have a hard time incorporating them into my layouts. I could put it on top of a 12x12 cardstock but then what do I do with the other side of my two page layout? Normally I end up cutting it in half and using it on the top or opposite sides of a two page layouts. So normally I avoid them when I buy my supplies. But this one came in a kit I bought. And I can't stand to get rid of things so I needed to figure out what to do with it. When I was looking at my sketch book I saw this sketch with a 12x12 piece of paper kind of in the center of the whole layout and that is when I thought ... why not use the die cut sheet?! Brilliant I say and I might just have to start buying more of them now!
