Paralympic Highlights

I've reached the point with my 2012 albums that I mostly have double pages left to do. This one is from the Paralympics; I did a whole album with my Olympic and Paralympic photos, but I also want a double page from the Paralympics in the ordinary 2012 album, as this was a big event in the year.

I decided to use the same papers from that album for this page, make a patchwork from the scraps, and add polaroid style photos to most of the patchwork squares. This turned out to be rather time-consuming as each square turned into a mini layout with its own journalling and embellishments:

The lighting is terrible in that photo, so here are the two pages separately:

I didn't set out to make another challenge page, but this one meets the criteria for Challenge 153 at Scrap Whispers - a double page with at least five photos and the title running across both pages - so I am linking up there.
