Another idea -Echo Park but you can use it with other manus too

I was in my LSS (PhotoScraps**Eldersburg) back in June, and one of the things that I love about the owner, Tracy B is that she encourages her customers to be inspired by ALL the creations in the store...lift them to your hearts content..share the love...some store owners won't let you photograph each and every thing in their store...but not at Photo Scraps! Their ideas are meant to be shared...so, I saw an idea in the store created with the Simple Stories line, loved it & I decided to use my Echo Park Charming for it:

So, this is the product that we usually see with collections:  a single 12 x 12 sheet of journaling cards spots.  We usually cut it all up, use some of the journaling spots & then don't know what to do with the rest.  Well, someone at PhotoScraps (I think it was Gina) created a layout directly on the sheet-she did tell me that it was not her original idea, she saw it somewhere and was inspired.  She may have told me where she got the idea from, but AGAIN, forgive me..whenever I go thru stressful events, I get brain fog.  Just know that this wasn't my idea either but it was sheer genius! And again, if you know where credit is due, send me a comment and I shall correct the post asap!
original piece of 12 x 12 paper
I created a layout and journaled directly on it, stuck my pictures and embellishments from the collection directly on it too...easy peasy right???
 I may add more journaling over there on the left but i haven't decided.....thanks for looking and hope you were inspired like I was!
