I *heart* list

We're changing things up a little on the October Afternoon blog. There will still be challenges every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, but now we have weekly themes also. Our theme this week is The Love List. Quite appropriate for February don't you think? We're carrying on with this 'love' theme for the whole of February so come and visit us, will ya? :)

My challenge for you is quite simple. It's a recipe challenge with just one requirement. 

12 squares

Please feel free to interpret it however you want. You can create a layout with 12 little squares on it, you can make 12 little square shaped mini cards or even tags. Keeping 'mixing it up' in mind, I decided to create a I *heart* list mini layout with the Daily Flash 6x8 page protector with 2x2 squares.

How fun is that?! I used bits and pieces from Public LibraryDaily Flash (Apple Cider) and even Saturday Mornings. The white cardstock pieces I cut into 2x2 are perfect background for each of the 'mini layout' about the things I currently love. 
If you, like me, think that the pillow puffs lose their dimensional look when slipped into a page protector, try doing what I did here. I adhered the pillow puffs outside of the page protector and loving how they look. 
I plan to stick this into my normal album with the rest of my 8.5x11 layouts. Simple solution! I also plan on doing more of 6x8 when I feel like changing things up to keep this playing with paper business fresh and fun I must say. 
I hope you will play along and share what you make with us in the OA Flickr Gallery You can also share with us on Instagram. Use the hashtag #oamixitupday and tag @sashafarina and as I would love to see your beautiful creations.
